    I use www.LimeWire.com because they have a free version. They also have a paid version which is supposed to be faster and offer more variety.

    Sorry but since this is non-nursing-related, this thread must be moved to the Break Room. Thanks and enjoy the discussion.

    iTunes. I've never had a problem with them. The only thing with them is that I can't find Dave Matthews Band or The Beatles. But they always have the latest hits. Cheap to download and on dial up it takes me about 5 mins to download.

    iTunes provides 75% of the market in legal downloads. I've never used them, but heard they are good and easy to use.

    I use MusicMatch (I think it's musicmatch.com) because that's the player that came with my computer. They have a wide variety of legal downloads for .99 per song.

    I also have Limewire and haven't had any trouble with it.

    Does iTunes work with non-iPods?

    Jaixa, I've never pondered that question. I've only ever had an iPod.

    I want the new apple iHome (I think that's the name of it). It's a cell phone, iPod, mp3 player all in one.

    Anyone know anything about the Yahoo music service?

    I tried Yahoo once. Found it complicated and slow. But, I was not blessed with patience or high speed internet so that could be a factor.

    Music Match is now owned by Yahoo.

    Well, I was trying to figure out what to use because my cell phone can play music, but now I got a Nano, so I really need to figure it out
