Radiohead: In Rainbows

Radiohead has just released their new album. It is being sold directly by them (no pricks at the record label taking a cut) and it sold in two versions. One is in a box with some vinyl, a book and some other crap, and the other is the digital version.

The box is cool, but the real zinger is the digital version. First and foremost, it is a DRM-free digital download. None of that iTunes "locked in to your computer" crap. Even more amazing - the MP3 version does not have a price. You can enter any price that you are willing to pay for the album, minimum is 1 L, max is 100.

In a final fuck you to the record labels, the album will initially be available only from their website. The regular retail version of the CD will not be out until 2008.
