BuyMusic.com Launch Uses Apple's Ad Format (Pics Included), BuyMusic CEO: Steve Jobs Is On The Wrong

As first mentioned last week, Buy.com has officially launched a new online music store in the vein of Apple's iTunes Music Store (iTMS). The new store is called BuyMusic (BM), and the company has aggressively borrowed from Apple's success with the iTMS, especially with its commercials (more on that in the full story). BM is a Windows-only music download service that the company actually brags in its press release as being "powered [entirely] by Microsoft technologies including Windows Media 9 Series and Microsoft.NET framework." Not so ironically, the company's tag line is "Music for the rest of us," a phrase that borrows on Apple's own tag line from the 1980s of Macs being "computers for the rest of us."
