Great article from ArsTechnica on eMusic, the DRM-free alternative that has grown into the second-largest online music seller behind Apple iTunes.

    for the tip! We signed up at eMusic to get the 14 day free trial. It looks good to us, we like the indie music and its a site that targets our age group (mid 40s) pretty well, so its very likely we will stay with eMusic for a while.

    * ability to search music by several criteria
    * listen to songs before purchasing
    * fairly good mp3 quality
    * flexibility and ease of use (plays through our iTunes)
    * no DRM issues
    * large and diverse selection of music.
    * reasonable pricing, fast downloads

    Just the sort of thing we were looking for.
