RIP AllofMP3

In all the buzz over Steve Jobs' "Thoughts on Music," it was easy to forget that there was already a successful online music download site selling DRM-free music: AllofMP3. But that site seems to be dead in the water this month as they've been shut down by Visa and Mastercard, who themselves were greeted at the door by a couple of goons in sunglasses sent over by the RIAA. So remains, but the only way to get money into your account there is by owning a JCB-issued credit card (issued by a Japanese bank).

Too bad. AllofMP3 was the site with the largest DRM-free catalog on the web.
