Buy.com to Challenge Apple's iTunes Music Store
SiliconValley.com reports that Buy.com is poised to unveil a new download music service next Tuesday.
The new service is said to offer a similar model as Apple's iTunes Music Store with a non-subscription, pay-per-download model. According to the article, however, Buy.com as not yet secured licensed music from all five major record labels. The buzz surrounding the new service is reported to be quite positive with the attempt " to create an atmosphere where music fans will want to linger."
While the service will be offered to Windows users, it's unclear what Audio format will be used and whether or not Mac owners will be able to use the new service.
