I am loving Amazon's new MP3 musc store

I am finding very low prices on some music when buying entire albums. A few caveats:
  • For Mac users: buy music using Safari and not Firefox or Camino
  • Downloading is a one shot deal: Amazon encourages you to immediately make an archival copy of purchased music
The album down loader is nicely integrated with iTunes - I hope that Apple does not try to break this convenient integration.

In addition to saving money, this is a huge time saver for me: when I buy music from the iTunes store I always make an archival copy by burning an audio CD, then using Tunes to rip to MP3s, then add the MP3s to my permanent backups - this was a time consuming process.
