"Hey STUPID! Yeah, you with the iPod, and you who is thinking about buying an iPod! Want to know just how STUPID you really are? Commere, lemme show ya." That's the message the nice folks at Napster are pitching to iPod and potential iPod owners with their "Do The Math" ad campaign. Basically they are saying that you're stupid to buy or to think about buying an iPod, then download music at 99 cents a pop when you could pay US$15 a month for all the music you can eat.

Lately, I've been entertaining myself with www.magnatune.com, which treat people like adults. They allow you to listen to the whole album before-hand, and then you decide to buy it, how much to pay for it, and 50% goes directly to the artist.
Try Before You Buy music, and they've got some quality stuff there.

There is NO way that they can send 50% to the artist unless they are charging you about 45 cents per song. The rates are fixed.
