wal-mart enters the MP3 frey

The 800 pound gorilla now offers $0.94, 256kpbs, DRM free MP3s from Universal. To some Windows uses, that is.

In similar news, Universal and Rhapsody are doing an experiment of their own, offering a DRM free MP3s for $0.99, or $0.89 for Rhapsody subscribers.

Will Sony and BMG follow Universal and EMI and eventually offer DRM free music? Will the public choose $0.94 256kbps MP3s without DRM or will they buy Wal-mart’s cheaper and DRMed 128kbps WMA files?
