Would buy more...
Authored by: BMarsh on May 23, '06 09:48:22AM

the iTMS Canada is a poor stepchild compared with the US store.

no TV shows, no PayPal support (I don't have a credit card due to university debts from years ago) missing canadian artists.

I know they've missed several impulse purchases just due to no PayPal support in Canada.

as for others worried about the DRM, and as others have pointed out, it is very easy to just burn your "purchased" smart playlist that is now part of iTunes to CD as plain data, or as Audio CD (I Do both because I'm a packrat) once it's on Audio CD, you can easily re-import as whatever format
(in my case 192kbit Mp3 because I have a car stereo that only reads regular audio or mp3)
yes there is some quality loss, but for most users it is hard to notice... when they can't even tell the difference between audio CD and 128 kbit mp3 (I personally can tell the difference between 128kbit mp3 and AAC with some songs, not all, I import from the audio CD at 160 kbit or 192 kbit to be most comparible with the 128kbit AAC)
