It was 10 years ago that people started downloading music from iTunes and then going through the dance of transferring those songs to their chunky or colorful iPods.

On April 28, 2003 then CEO of Apple Steve Jobs launched iTunes, a music store for Apple’s iPod and Mac computers. While many were using illegal music download services like Kazaa or Napster, Jobs announced at an event that Apple was going to start selling 99 cent songs that could be easily downloaded. The store had 200,000 songs at launch; more than 1 million sold during the first week of business.

“We don’t know any other company that has these assets under one roof. We know that only Apple could have created this Apple music store,” Jobs said at the event. “The iTunes music store, we think, will become the hottest way to acquire music.”

    I download music from bands I care about and would like to support on Amazon. To the source for all my other music, I plead the fifth.

    None, as of yet. However, if I can come across sites that are either free, or at
    the least, very affordable, and I can figure out just how to go about doing so,
    legally, I might add, then I just might be hip to doing so.

    Legally, I mostly download music off bandcamp.
    But not every artist is on bandcamp, I don't have unlimited funds, and most of the time I won't buy an album unless I've listened to it. So I use rutracker for that.

    I pretty much stopped listening to most music anyway, if I don't have it on disk already I probably don't want it. (and I wouldn't use iTunes if my life depended on it).

    Napster, lol.
    (Actually, a little of this, a little of that - I've used iTunes, Amazon, and BandCamp, along with, um, some other stuff.)

    Does Napster even exist anymore? haha
    I haven't heard much about it since Lars Ulrich sued them. :P

    I think it exists in name (and people have paid way too much for that name). Also, there are apparently a few OpenNap servers.

    If I download, I used the Zune software. I still prefer CDs though as I can't lose rights to the music I paid for if I still have the disk.

    If you like SHOUTING yes the ARTIST can CHARGE what ever HE\SHE wants that is FAIR. I was Talking about APPLE CHARGING SO much for the songs

    Apple doesn't decide the price, the artists do.
  • craneju... Omni 2013/05/02 17:37:07
    cranejumper
    Apple decides the price above what the artist wants also on the popularity of the song
