The problem I see with digital downloads is for one they are mostly in lossy formats. Two, for the price they charge per track, they are charging way too much since their costs have been lessened: no jewel case, cover art, blank disc, ect… Three, are we going to be satisfied with just lossy music? I know I won’t.
From what I have seen, $.99/track or even $.79 is ridiculous for lossy quality. Maybe if they offered it in lossless it would be worth paying the $.99/track rate. The lossy version of the album cost just as much as the regular which is total BS. I don’t know why people would pay that for lossy music but again why would people pay $2.50 for a 15 second lossy ringtone. I guess the world is full of suckers.
