Is One Bad Apple Killing Music?

Is One Bad Apple Killing Music?

Steve Jobs might be pointing the finger at the record industry but maybe he wants to go and give his iTunes team a bit of a kicking too. So from time to time, we decide to act on impulse and we try to buy from iTunes - yes, DRM and all with the hope one day that we'll download some software which will uncrack it.

Steve Jobs might be pointing the finger at the record industry but maybe he wants to go and give his iTunes team a bit of a kicking too. So from time to time, we decide to act on impulse and we try to buy from iTunes – yes, DRM and all with the hope one day that we’ll download some software which will uncrack it. Anyway, is it just us or does anyone else have trouble buying music on iTunes. Anyone ever tried using PayPal and the weird verification process? And why can’t we ever buy with our credit card? We just get this pop up box which says we have given the wrong zip-code. After you replug in your zipcode three times and get the same message, you’re left to ask an intern to see if the album’s on the shared server and if she could rip a copy…

Is it just us? Or does anyone else have this trouble? Leave a comment and we’ll see if Apple’s seriously affecting everyone’s listening pleasure, or just ours…
