It sounds almost too good to be true except for the wma part. Otherwise, as near as I can tell, it's just like the iTMS. Shit.

The Dell Music Store and the MusicMatch store are allegedly one and the same.

I click on the link for 3 Doors Down, a featured artist, and it tries searching for "Undefined". I also got a search for "null" at one point... me thinks they forgot to check for dead links or something.Other comments:1) Appears they're caching the music a few seconds before the preview... I wait about 4 seconds before hearing anything.2) 3 options for preview quality - 20kbps is low, med and CD is supposedly 65kbps.3) Not going to try buying anything, so don't know how that experience is.Edit: So I must be really freaking stupid. All links for artists AND albums I click send me to searches for null or undefined. Why do companies bother to release stuff that's not complete?
