Amazon’s announced a disruptive move today: They launched a music store selling MP3s, through a partnership with EMI and apparently 12K other labels.
This is exactly what I have been waiting for. I have been sick of iTunes restricting which MP3 player I can use, or how many computers I can transfer my music to. I presume they will try to restrict me geographically, but I can usually get around that using a US credit card.
I hope the other majors, if they have not already, follow EMI to Amazon fast.
