Well, that was a pleasant surprise. The commercial for the new iPod Nano came on just a minute ago – you know, the one with the great theme by Feist? On a lark, I decided to check whether Amazon’s new DRM-free MP3 service offered this track for sale. And, one text search and about 5 or 6 easy clicks later, I’ve purchased this Apple theme from Amazon for 89 cents and am listening to it as I type this. And the icing on the cake is that I don’t have to bother with “authorizing” another machine or otherwise worrying about how I’ll transfer this track from this laptop to my desktop or other MP3 players.
Well done, Amazon.
