Every now and then, usually while browsing the iTunes Music Store, I find myself wondering how I can stomach the whole thing, and why I wouldn't just buy my music somewhere else.
Unfortunately, ever since Kozmo went under, the path of least resistance for my mass-market music purchases has been amazon.com. Also hard to stomach, but generally a safe and sound place for online purchasing. And they've got a good deal on shipping.
But what they don't have is a music store with previewable tracks that play on Macs. As in, no QuickTime or mp3 previews. I guess they don't trust Apple's drm or something, but I'm not going to install sketchy real player or windows media apps just so I can buy a cd from these folks.
It's probably time to stop bitching about it and just find a music e-tailer that doesn't suck.
