I have just discovered the beauty of iTunes. For the longest time, I've always wondered what the fuss was about iTunes. I guess living in a country that didn't have access to an iTunes store didn't help much with that perception either.
Now that I have access to an iTunes store, I have to admit it is good. Being able to buy just the songs I like instead of the whole album is great and at only $1.69 a song, it's not that painful on the pocket.
There's going to be people out there that will say, "why buy when you can download". I think if there was a legal option that was decent, then buy. If there wasn't, then I'm with them. Get your music whichever way you can.
For me, that way is now iTunes.
