Who Do You Trust?

allofmp3.com is an online music store. When I say that, I do not mean they sell CD's. They offer mp3's for mass consumption.

"But Matt, iTunes also offers mp3's. Why do we care?"

Well, my friend, iTunes offers music for the price of $0.99 a song. allofmp3.com offers music for 0.02 per MB. That means that while Snow Patrol's new album, Eyes Open, is available from iTunes for $9.99. It is available at allofmp3.com for $1.27.

"Amazing! How can they do that!"

Again, an example illustrates. Tool's new album, 10,000 Days, is only $2.13 at allofmp3.com. At iTunes.... It's not available! That's because Tool has not released their albums for online sale! allofmp3.com is 'illegally' selling music to the unwashed masses. I air quote illegally because it is only illegal in most countries. allofmp3.com is based in Moscow, where they apparently are happy to take your business.

The real question is, do you trust them with your credit card so you can take part in these mind numbing deals...
