    It's THAN damn it!

    I will however say that the reduction in price can really only be seen as a good thing :)

    Hmm, My iTunes infested machine hasn't seen use in quite a while. I may fire it up and have a look. Still, since my Nano's screen broke I haven't looked back with much interest.

    I'm with Phil.. no way I'd pay to download MP3's at the current price.. I'd much rather get the whole CD-booklet deal if I'm paying for it .. then I can rip it however I choose and as many times as I choose.

    Indeed, this is the problem until the price falls lower than CD, why bother?
    With a cd i can rip it at lossless and still keep the cd, case and booklet.

    I can never see it catching properly (as in over taking cd) until they lower the price 30/40% below cd.

    You can also get cd's pretty cheap off ebay, like £5, and then rip them to your computer at whatever quality you feel like

    i remember reading this on CDs, that you could not re-sell them.... its kind of right... they did not sell you the music, they sold you the right to hear the music, you cant resell that right..... i think..... anyway it is bad for business.

    and considering the current "sue-everyone-that-has-the-radio-on-in-any-public-place" scenario....

    If it actually was a dollar a song, that'd be OK - you could buy the two songs off any album that're any good, and save greatly on buying the rest. The problem is that it won't be a dollar in the UK, will it...

    I will not buy any DRM infected music, the price drop to 99c is good though. I got 5 free songs via a coke promo and those songs randomly stop working on my iPod and all the others still work fine. DRM is bad.
    If I were to buy music online I would pay about $0.40 - $0.50 NZD or half the price of the CD.

    beat me to it. it's in there at least twice too.

    The fact that Apple have relented heartens me, though I doubt I'll ever get an iPod.

    Now if Apple would unblock all the songs we've already paid for, that would make our day. LOL

    I doubt it. Then every second hand CD/Record shop would be illegal and they certainly aren't.

    thats what people say about hearing to a radio transmission in a public place were anyone can hear it, and it is apparently illegal according to the RIAA..... i think


    edit: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=140489&highlight=radio+hairdresser

    "The PRS claimed that Kwik-Fit mechanics routinely use personal radios while working at service centres across the UK and that music, protected by copyright, could be heard by colleagues and customers."
