iTunes has arrived in Spain. I downloaded the software, opened an account, prepaid a small sum, downloaded my first album into my library, and burned it onto a disk.

Cost 10 euros + cost of CR-RW, so about 12 euros, I guess. You have permission to create 7 CDs in total, and they can play in Real and in a normal CD player (so compatible).

Purchasing a song costs 1 euro.

I think it's rather expensive, but good for when you want just one song.

I'm kinda in favour of paying for music to support artists, which is why I never got into obtaining free copies over the WWW. On the other hands, CDs are over-priced and often one likes just one or two songs...

One thing that annoyed me was NOT to find a group I like (Mo' Horizons)....:-(

Has anybody else tried iTunes, and what do they think?

To expensive! Nov 2, 2004

A CD normally has 15-20 songs and you get a nice booklet with it.

If a song cost 1 € where is the advantage?
In USA it cost 0.99 cents, why is in Europe expensiver?

Isn't it mp3? Nov 3, 2004

Do they not distribute in mp3 format? Those should fit at least 200 on one CD.
1 Euro for a piece is only cheap if you avoid buying the whole cd. If I want the whole CD I go to the library, borrow it and copy it into mp3 on my hard disk or burn it onto a cd-rom. It's legal to copy for personal use.
