Submission + - AmieStreet - An interesting DRM-free music store

LucasMedaffy writes: http://www.amiestreet.com/ (as explained here: http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,1697,2070636 ,00.asp) This is a new music store with DRM-free mp3s where the price for songs starts out at $0.00, and increases, cent by cent, as a song gets popular and downloaded more often — to a maximum of $0.98. There are also some promising social networking functionality built in — such as getting paid to recommend good music to the community. Looks promising — and Barenaked Ladies new album is on there. They should be credited as one 'big band' that has decided to embrace online distribution both on places like iTunes (with DRM obviously) as well as eMusic and various other DRM-free sites!

Heuristics are bug ridden by definition. If they didn't have bugs, then they'd be algorithms.

Working...
