Music fans are always forced to make a number of tough choices: Beatles or Stones? Vinyl or CD? Live show or studio album? The advent of legal online music stores has added another factor into the mix: Buy or rent? Many of you are probably aware of the iTunes Music Store (iTMS). It works like this: You select a song and download it, usually at a price of about 99 cents. After that, the song is yours forever. You can listen to it as many times as you want, put it on an iPod, even burn it to a CD.

Good article. You're right. I still have the Beethoven 3rd Symphony that I bought when I was 11. That was in 1961. I would hate to be still paying for it, at a higher price every few years.
Jump to:
If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
