There’s a new digital music store in town, and it’s got some serious backing… eBay. But neither Apple or Telstra will be shaking in their boots just yet…Tracks are available through GetMusic for $1.59 each on average, which is a bit cheaper than your standard MP3 pricing. Each song is DRM-free, 256Kbps MP3, although the store is a joint venture between Universal and eBay, so there isn’t the same variety as other stores.
The problem with the whole setup, as Gus over at Lifehacker points out, is that there’s no integration with eBay at all – you need a new account name and password, the link to purchase songs opens new tabs in your browser and the whole thing is a 5-click process. Not quite the simple purchasing option Apple provides, is it?
