Dial Tone

Apple’s Online Music Venture

So Apple announced a new online music service Monday. Songs can be downloaded for 99� apiece, and the catalog includes 200,000 tracks. Users will be able to download, burn and copy the music at will, without any of the cumbersome digital rights management schemes other music companies have come up with.

Too bad it appears to only work on Macintosh, iTunes, and iPod. And it uses aac audio files, not mp3. Well I hope for the best anyway. This marks a sea change in online music distribution.
