RIAA drops lawsuit against AllofMP3

Of course, there's a small catch: The files you download, which are ostensibly 128kbps MP3 files, have a .mp3x extension and are encoded in such a way t...

allTunes: Music store app from AllOfMP3

Uber-cheap quasi-legal Russian music store AllOfMP3 has released a beta of a new app for Windows and smartphones called allTunes that puts a slick interface around the download service. TechCrunch's Nik Cubrilovic is a longtime AllOfMP3 customer and was impressed with the Windows version of allTunes, and he gives high marks all around, especially appreciating the "Preview" feature that l...
