Shop Amazon MP3s from iTunes Video Transcript
Look at this new Genius feature in iTunes. It's really clever at telling you songs similar to the ones you own. It's a great way to find music. But much of the iTunes music store is DRM'd! That means it's restricted! I prefer to shop at a store like Amazon that sells unrestricted MP3s. I saw this site on Boing Boing called Advantageous. They offer a script that combines the Amazon music store with iTunes. Here's a Quick Tip on how it works. Go to advantageousmp3.com and download and install the script. Then go into iTunes. Shop the music store as usual. When you find a song you'd like to buy, go to the script icon in the menu and select "Get MP3 from Amazon". Your default browser will open with the Amazon music store where you can purchase the track you were looking at. Advantageous notes they can't guarantee that every song in the iTunes library will link directly to one in the Amazon store. So make sure you've got the right MP3 before you click to buy. That's it for this Quick Tip. I'm Tom Merritt. CNET.com.
