"Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) today announced that in 2008 the company will begin an international rollout of Amazon MP3, Amazon's DRM-free MP3 digital music store where every song is playable on virtually any digital music-capable device, including the PC, Mac(R), iPod(R), Zune(R), Zen(R), iPhone(TM), RAZR(TM), and BlackBerry(R). Amazon MP3 is the only retailer to offer customers DRM-free MP3s from all four major music labels as well as over 33,000 independent labels."

Same here, but I also would like artwork and better tags (bio, lyrics, etc...)

Right now I might buy mp3 from amazon.com if the CD is hard to come by  ;)

To me it is as good as its going to get.  Music quality unless you have a $$$ system and are listening for imperfections is as good as a cd.  Tags are why I have MC and I always wipe them after importing then re-tag. 

The only thing that could be better besides selection, is album insert artwork.  I've always wished I had those extra pages.
