    Well, I took advantage of the WOOT but that MP3 music deal seems like a bust too me. Singles shouldn’t be more than $.99, and even that is a bit high if you ask me when you consider there is zero packaging, etc.

    @mfergel: A good deal of Other Music’s selection you won’t find at the iTunes store. Really good stuff. Plus that bitrate is nothing to sneeze at.

    Other Music is an already cool brick-and-mortar store, and the digital store is looking just as great. They have a ton of small lable and import stuff that just plain isn’t available on iTunes or in big-box stores. 320kbps is (I believe) the highest bitrate mp3 playable on an iPod. And $1.29/track is comparable to what Apple will charge for their non-DRMd music once that is available.

    As you can tell, I think its pretty swell.

    Be careful with the Sony product on Woot. It is a SONY!!!
    It uses proprietary software to load music onto it (no drag and drop drive access), and if you use it to rip CDs onto it, it will attempt to use Sony’s proprietary ATRAC format.

    Remember, Sony is the same company that offered the free rootkit with every CD purchase. Or forcing the BluRay disc onto every PS3 and jacking its price. Sony’s goal is to make everything proprietary instead of user friendly. Control the marketshare by format instead of competition.

    Yeah, I saw the proprietary software deal. Doesn’t bother me much. I don’t really use portables much (I have a Sandisc, but it’s only 256k). I can use this when I ride the motorcycle on long trips.

    Got in on that Woot right before it sold out. Not a Sony fan but with built in noise cancelling earbuds, 2GB, and that sweet display I couldn’t hold off. This thing sells for $200 on Sony’s website. $50 was too good a deal to pass up.
