A catch phrase will go here soon.

Jeff Bezos is a genius. The Amazon Mp3 downloader is brilliant. Why would anyone every buy from iTunes again!?


Seriously… I'm downloading a remake of Blood on the Tracks by Mary Lee's Corvette… no DRM, super cheap and super easy.

    You didn’t know about this? It’s great. Also, you should get this cool little iTunes plugin that lets you use the iTunes Store to browse for music but then grab the MP3 from Amazon http://www.advantageousmp3.com/mac/

    Where have you been, man? I haven’t bought anything from iTunes since Amazon started selling DRM-free! The downloader has been there since the start.

    To answer the question in the title of your post: in
    Canada iTunes is available, while Amazon MP3 store isn’t….

    I like Amazon MP3 but AAC is a better quality format and with iTunes being DRM Free, the advantage is iTunes for people who really care about encoder quality.

    iTunes is now DRM free also. I like Amazon but I they should allow you to put songs in a shopping cart like their other products. Also searching and sorting music is not as slick as iTunes. Regardless it’s always great to have a choice in pricing and CKs applescript can help with that very easily.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
