Am I the only one that’s been buying tons of music from the Amazon MP3 store?
It is actually now easier to buy music the legit way, via Amazon, than it is to pirate it. I mean, I guess it depends on your personal money/time mapping, but for me… a mere $9 for an album vs. a bunch of interminable torrenting? The choice is clear.
Maybe the travails of digital content have been overstated. Maybe the problem hasn’t been paying for content, per se, but rather the lame, broken contexts in which that payment has, ‘til now, been embedded.
Seriously curious, though: Is anybody else as sold on this as I am? Or are you still slurping your jams down from some darknet somewhere? Why? Feel free to comment anonymously!
