Amazon.com launches DRM-free a la carte MP3s

Amazon.com--News Release

Is this the end of Apple's dominance of the digital music scene? I hope that competition encourages all the music suppliers to reduce prices, offer a greater selection.

Amazon.com is encoding at 256kbs for $.89 to $.99 per song with albums priced between $5.99 and $9.99. Best part of all: They're in the mp3 format, which means 100% compatibility with nearly all music players (I can't think of one player on the market that won't play an mp3, except for Sony's now-dead last generation minidisc players.
