Walmart MP3 store adds 74 cent tracks, Mac, Linux support

I love a good price war. And it looks like Walmart is challenging Amazon and Apple to one by offering select MP3 downloads from Walmart's online music store for just 74 cents. Not every song will go for that price, but standard tracks start at 94 cents per song, which is still cheaper than music on iTunes. Amazon typically sells MP3 music for between 89 and 99 cents per song. Walmart is also...

Google goes ad-crazy with video game ads, YouTube purchase links

There's a saying that "advertising abhors a vacuum." In other words, if there's a blank space on a wall, telephone poll, or the back of your eyelids, eventually someone will figure out how to put an advertisement there. With that in mind, Google has rolled out two new features this week intended to help fill the vacuum. First up, the company continues to try to justify its massive investment in...

Amazon MP3 store to be available on Google Android phones

As you may have heard, T-Mobile has announced the first phone running Google's Android operating system. But an OS is only as good as its applications. And while it remains to be seen whether Android has the killer apps it needs to take on Apple, Microsoft, Symbian, and RIM, the T-Mobile G1 has some pretty good ones including access to Google's mobile search, maps, Gmail, contact, calendar, and...

Amazon takes MP3 store global

Amazon has announced plans to take its Amazon MP3 store global sometime in 2008. No word on whether that means February or December, but we'll keep you posted. Amazon currently offers DRM-free MP3 tracks from all four major music labels, something no other digital music store can boast. That's 3.3 million songs from over 270,000 artists. But if you live outside of the US, good luck actually...

Sony to sell DRM-free music online after all

Apparently Sony's plan for DRM-free music distribution isn't quite as dumb as we thought. Sure, the music label's announcement that it would sell DRM-free music was quickly followed by the news that you'd have to walk into a bricks and mortar retail store and buy a gift card allowing you to download an album's worth of tracks from the web. But it turns out that's not the only way to get DRM-free...
