Itunes music store: pros and cons?
Do you use it, or do you prefer to buy actual CDs?
I hate how a song is "protected," even when I pay for it. I always used to use torrents and limewire, but itunes is so much easier. It's quick, has a great selection, and it's easy to discover new artists, and you don't have to buy the whole CD (most of the time I can't even find the CD in stores, because all the music stores around here have gone out of business).
Pros.......... Not sure.
Pro: easy download, support an artist, legit album.
Cons: Protected (m4p) and costs money.
Solution: download albums from torrents.
Torrents are the way to go for sure.
Pros: album cover art?
Actually I do buy from itunes store often and the genius feature is a nice new little thing for buying new songs. I also like supporting people I like.
I do use torrents though especially for songs you can't find on itunes.
Pros: everything is labeled properly (usually), support artist, album art
Cons:$, cant find underground artist
i personally like itunes, but have been using torrents lately because i realized i spent over 1k in the itunes store
