Memory Day: Amazon MP3s

Six years ago, on October 23, 2007, I made my first MP3 purchases through Amazon.

Up to that point, I had purchased all of my music through Walmart, which required the extra step of converting their DRM-draped Windows audio files into MP3s.

Amazon has always had a nice set up for MP3 orders, including the cloud player to keep track of songs after I've deleted them locally. They toss enough coupons out at regular intervals that you can usually get a song or two per month for free, and they now offer free digital downloads with real album purchases.

I tried iTunes once, but uninstalled it immediately after it added multiple extra Apple background services to my machine. Ain't no one got CPUs for that.
