Anyone checked all the new stuff added this week?! <br><br>Let's just say that in the 'Just Added' section, where last week's stuff ended, this week's is only in the 'D's...<br><br>Still looking!!! LOT of Motown, Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters (yay)....<br><br>Wonder if this is the last bit of joy we get before the price hikes...(by the labels of course) <br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
The deal has probably already been struck (higher prices) .. That's probably why we're now seeing a flood of atists / labels now on iTunes.<br><br>****************<br><br>[color:blue]I'm MattMac112, and I approve of President George W. Bush</font color=blue>

Personally I doubt we will see $2.49 a track anytime soon with Wal-Mart selling tracks now for 89 cents. I am not saying it won't happen in time, but not immediately. Get your music now though at 99 cents since it may well go up by quite a bit over time. That said, I think $2.49 a track will kill things for the iTMS. I know I wouldn't buy at that price. I haven't bought a lot in quite a while either. I think after the novelty wears off, customers kind of fade away and only buy now and then. <br><br>
But remember, if the labels dictate the price of the track, then it will go up universally- at ALL digital music services, not just iTunes...<br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
Yeah I realize that, but then I think they will be shooting themselves in the foot and you will see legal music downloads take a BIG dip. But, being the greedy morons they are, they are willing to gamble on pissing people off I guess. I mean do you serious think you'd buy tracks at $2.49 a pop? I sure as hell wouldn't. May as well buy the CD then or go back to finding music illegally. OK, granted some people are just music junkies and willpay whatever the labels want, but the majority of the millions that buy legally now won't go for it I think. Could be wrong of course, we are paying $2.49 a gallon for gas too when you come to think of it. They have us by the short hairs there. <br><br>
I know you probably knew that, but your argument was that iTunes wouldn't go to $2.49 when services like Walmart's would still be at .99.<br><br>Chances are they'll ALL have a big surge, and that will pretty much be the end of that. CD singles are pretty much the proposed price, but they usually give you about 4 or 5 tracks (remixes, etc), as well as a case and insert.<br><br>Greed greed greed....Keep an eye out for the next Napster!<br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
