Free at last!

Well, not free so much as freer. (Freeer? Free-er? You get the idea.) iTunes will soon be host to a large collection of DRM-free tracks from EMI. EMI's press release (just like Apple's press release) notes that the quality is also higher, at 256 kbps. Pretty cool.

I was happy when Steve Jobs called for DRM-free music back in February, but to be honest I just thought it was a marketing ploy that would never come to fruition. Considering the higher quality, with full albums still available at the same price (individual tracks are thirty cents more), I might just have to start getting all my EMI music from iTunes. Wow, what a sellout I'm becoming.
