And, as far as mp3.com or other "free samples" show, they badly suck
because you must wade through a whole bunch of cookies and press some
"Play" button and get realaudio at the end, if something. I wish there
were simple mp3s anywhere, as I saw them once in corea, Miles, Chick etc,
but they were too big then.
