Barely three months have passed since the first batch of songs free of digital rights management protection appeared on the iTunes Store. Now Apple has some competition from none other than Wal-Mart. According to an AP report quoted by Yahoo News, the superstore chain has begun offering DRM-free songs on its own music store.
Individual songs costs 94 cents—5 cents less than on iTunes—and full albums can be purchased for as little as $5.88 a piece. Songs are in MP3 format, too, making them compatible with both the iPod and devices like Microsoft's Zune or PlaysForSure music players.
