Rhapsody is entering the a la carte music store business—now you can buy single tracks or albums just like you can from Amazon or iTunes. The first 100,000 people who create accounts receive a $10 credit. (You need a credit card to register.) [Rhapsody]

    What’s the DRM situation? That’s the crucial question, lacking a captive market of people who do what they’re told, such as Apple has.

    You lost me at “Real.”

    @Mr. Gunn: DRM-free for the new MP3 store — looks like it’s following Amazon’s model. Their subscription-based service is same as it ever was.

  4. Chris Walters says:

    @Mr. Gunn: They’re trying to sell to the Apple market, in fact, which is why they’ve got to go DRM-free.

    Anything that makes me give a credit card number and then says that I can cancel any time, makes me nervous…

    Anything associated with Real makes me nervous.

    Actually, I’ve been subscribing to Real’s Rhapsody for a few years now and, aside from some Tech Supporters that aspire to someday reach “Bonehead” (and a few good ones), I’ve had an overall pleasant experience.
