    Where to get online music?

    Hi everyone,

    My son is getting an MP3 player for his birthday and I am trying to figure out the place to get music from. I guess with some services you just kind of rent the music? But you always have the option to buy? Any advice is appreciated.

    In the past I have used file sharing software like Napster or Kaazaa. I know LimeWire is popular now, but I haven't used it. I guess I'm a little behind the times

    Thanks
    Better use it up before it gets old!

    I can only advise you go legit. There's iTunes, of course, but that's really best if you plan to buy an iPod. You can buy mp3's from amazon.com and walmart.com (and other places, too!)

    I would only use Limewire if there was a song that I really wanted that wasn't available for sale. And even then I'd have to think twice as there seems to be a lot of crap that comes from Limewire. I was cleaning up a virus for someone recently and I think there were at least two mp3 files they had downloaded that were viruses.

    Default BitTorrent

    BitTorrent is the best and safest way to download free music nowadays. However, if your son is young, download the music for him because many BitTorrent sites have a lot of adult advertisements all over them. If you're looking to pay for music, I'd suggest iTunes, Amazon, or Rhapsody.
