Boy, are you ever behind.

Napster changed to a subscription-based legal download service this past winter, maybe fall. It's $9.99 a month, nearly-unlimited downloads, and $.99 if you burn a song, $9.99 if you burn an album.

iTunes, an Apple product, is the leading competitor. It's what I use mainly. No subscription, $9.99 to download an album, and $.99 to download a song.

Wally there are more disadvantages to advantages with Bigpond/Telstra Music Downloads...Yeah I know it looks cheap, but what happens if you don't own a credit card and you lived out in the Middle of Nowhere then you have to go to the nearest capital city to download the songs with cash or bank keycard, which for some people including yourself the nearest capital city is approx. 3 - 8 hours away!! So to get your money's worth you would have to download around about 10 - 15 full length albums, which is crap if your after only one or two songs from each of those albums.

Plus the quality is poor and they don't have a wide range of downloads...so basically if you want just the top 40 it would better and cheaper for you to go to the local music shop pay $30 and get the latest "So Fresh".

mp3search is fairly borderline, I don't know what to do with it. It also seems to have a piss-poor selection...
