ProInstant access to music.

ConsProblems, even with legal downloads.

This review will focus on music downloading since that is my experience though I am sure other media formats such as movies will have the same issues. Music downloading is becoming big business. From the early days of Napster which helped popularise the downloading age, more and more music is...

I embraced digital music rather early, finding the MP3 format rather versatile and a great way of backing up my music collection, which at the time comprised of a large number of CD albums and singles. CD singles in particular take up a lot of space so many of them were digitalised and sold on...

I feel that legal downloading could very well be the way of the future with the way technology is progressing. We know as other reviewers have pointed out we do not even have to leave our house to access films, music etc. Personally I do not buy any dvd's, blue rays, books or music anymore due to...

ConsNone really. Songs are cheap.

Let's be honest shall we. Legal media is slowly, and I say very slowly, becoming more popular on the world wide web. Nevertheless, although you can purchase your favourite tracks or albums for the equivalent of under £1.00 per song, there are those that refuse to buy anything if you can get it...
