Amazon vs iTunes

On a whim today I went looking for this album Spaced Out – The Best of Leonard Nimoy & William Shatner. Amazon has it in 256 kbps variable bit rate mp3, which is what I usually import CDs in. It’s $8.99 and DRM free.

iTunes also has the album but not in the iTunes Plus DRM free variety. It’s also $11.99. So while I own an iPod and have bought several hundred tracks from the iTunes store in the past, I’m taking the plunge and going with Amazon on this one. Competition is good.
