Buy.com, once my favorite online store, the one with the original crazy business model, just launched BuyMusic.com today. The site is a poor rip-off of Apple’s iTunes Music Store, but the commercials (1, 2 & 3) are good rip-offs of Apple’s commercials.

And I guess they’re right when they say it’s music downloading “for the rest of us” because the site doesn’t work on any Mac browser I tried. Dumb. And even dumber are the more restrictive DRM restrictions on the music. But they are cheaper than Apple’s prices (79¢ versus 99¢ per song) but the selection is much smaller.
