from the front page (am i supposed to discuss this somewhere else?):<br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>April 8 - 00:09 EDT The Wall Street Journal notes that a number of albums are currently cheaper on CD than when purchased in digital format from services such as Apple's iTunes Music Store. The publication gives an example of N.E.R.D.'s "Fly or Die" album, which sells for US$16.99 on iTunes and $13.99 on Napster, while Amazon sells the CD version for $13.49. In addition, all five major music companies are reportedly discussing ways to raise the average price of single downloads from 99 cents to anywhere from $1.25 to as much as $2.49.<p><hr></blockquote><p>how in the heck can an online version of a song be more expensive than the actual CD version?<br><br>i am thinking of using up my remaining 6 free songs (i can't find anything at the moment) and then giving up on online music and returning to buying CDs...if they raise prices, then the choice will be easy. i just don't get why they would make a move that could kill online music legal downloading...wouldn't this just encourage illegal downloads again? doh!<br><br>----<br>"even if we get bin Laden or Zawahiri now, it is 2 years 2 late.

Wal Mart is selling tunes for 88 cents a track. Others will follow suit. Just wait and see. WMA of course, so who cares. <br><br>Buying music online is cool and practical, but there is only so much music I buy anyway (not that much) and I still buy a CD now and then too. <br><br>
