I just paid for music over the internet.

For the first time in my life, I paid for music, delivered entirely digitally.

Why? Because has managed to break the barrier. The music available through them is lower than the cost of convenience.

I'll always remember that Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride" was the first MP3 I ever downloaded (hey, I could have done worse). From around 1998.

Now, in 2010, Natalie Walker's cover of Colorblind has become my first MP3 purchase. $0.89.

It only took someone 12 years to get it right. Go figure.
