On the recommendation of my friend Dave, I decided to give Yahoo Music Unlimited a try. Today I signed up for a year. I've been listening for a while now, and all I have to say is WOW! Apple, copy this right now! Yahoo definately has something good here. It's an intoxicating feeling to be able to listen to any song you want to. I've been wandering all over the place listening to stuff today. I can definately see how being able to listen to entire songs online would drive you to actually buy the song. A few suggestions though:
- Make an OS X version of Yahoo Music Engine right now! I wanna listen to this stuff on my Mac!
- Offer the ability to do a one-click buy of a discounted copy of a printed album on CD. I don't mean a low quality, DRM-encumbered digital download, I mean a full blown, standard music CD. If I'm gonna buy the album, I want the full quality album with liner notes and no damn DRM.
