Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
iTunes, Amazon Cloud, CD, or direct from the artist?
I like owning stuff. In general, I like having physical copies of things, because I know that they are in my care. The problem is that I don't have a ton of room these days, and I'm trying to purge things.
I find myself listening to a lot of music on Pandora these days, and I've fallen in love with a few bands lately that I really want to pick up the albums for.... But I really don't know if I want to go out of my way to get physical media for them. Oh, sure, if it is something close to me or an impulse purchase, I'll gladly pick up the album. Everything else? Not so much.
I own an 8GB iPod Nano that pretty much hasn't been touched in quite a few months, a Galaxy Nexus, and an Amazon Kindle. These devices + my PC are the main conduits of my music-going experience. I do not have an Amazon Prime account, YET, but that might change next month depending on budget.
My question is this: Should I buy things on iTunes or Amazon MP3? Which has better quality? Also, which one gets more money to the artist, or should I not even care about that?
Subquestion: I want to buy The Glitch Mob's album, which they sell on their site for $7.99. Amazon also sells it for 7.99. The website version appears to also include an iTunes offer. Which conduit should I pay for the album through?
