Multimedia, AV Earlier today I bought a $10 album from iTumes, which I wish I hadn't. The reviews were glorious, and the previews not indicative. Listening to the album all I could hear was hipster drivel. Obviously, I wanted my money back. Well, bad luck. iTunes won't give refunds. I tweeted about it, and a friend suggested Rdio. Rdio, a brand new streaming service, currently offers a 3-day free trial -- without the need for a credit card. For $5 let's you stream their huge library on your desktop via an Adobe AIR app or browser, and for $10 let's you also stream from Android/BBerry/iOS, plus be able to sync your music with you offline on these devices. Unlike Last.fm and Pandora, Rdio let's you stream on-demand.

Agreed, sounds like a lame attempt at bashing itunes and plugging rdio.

iTunes provides 25 second previews and every band has a website with some full tracks.

I remember when you had to buy a CD for $20 if you wanted a couple songs and the rest would be filler. Or how about those $7 singles cd? Where you get 3 versions of the same song even though you just wanted the original.

Cry more.
