Legal Well, this was as inevitable as the tides rolling in. The New York Times is reporting that the US Department of Justice is investigating Apple's tactics in the digital music market. The antitrust probe is still in an early phase, and is said to focus on "the dynamics of selling music online".

I still buy CDs so I'm not a customer of any download service. The quality isn't there yet.


I'm getting a sense that this is just beginning to change.

In the last few weeks I've managed to purchase three albums I was looking for as FLAC.

Overall, I still prefer to have the physical CD if for nothing other than archive purposes, but FLAC downloads seem to be just turning the corner toward mainstream. Not there yet, but [hopefully] headed there.

That's amazingly good. I don't use the format but until one format is accepted, we should be able to download 100 % of the quality, not just a good replica.
