In April, Apple started charging more for popular songs (99p) while they also have 79p and 59p songs (which are less popular).

Because people who happily buy DRM-infested songs are usually tools who'll accept this sort of thing.

It actually would be nearer 25%...

But in fact it's on the negative side of zero.

iTunes is trying to charge around £50 for the latest season of House in HD. Digital downloads are supposed to be more affordable because it cuts out the need for physical discs and covers and the transport and effort of retailers. It's ******** (rhymes with swollocks). I'd love not to get a warning point for that.

I hate Apple now, they're too much like Windows. They even charge for iPod Touch & iPhone firmware updates now! The cheek of it!

To be fair to Apple they're getting rid of this DRM stuff.

A lot of singles sales are made by the advertisement of them being at the top of the charts. iTunes are capitalising on people who jump on the bandwagon.

I rarely buy songs on iTunes that are at the top. They are on the radio enough and play in clubs all the time. I spend money on iTunes for songs I like and wish to fund the cause of the artist keeping up the good work.
