About fookin' time

Music wants to be free, man.
Apple Inc. is cutting the price of some songs in its market-leading iTunes online music store to 69 cents and plans to begin selling all tracks without copy protection.

At the Macworld trade show Tuesday, Apple's top marketing executive, Philip Schiller, said iTunes songs would come in three pricing tiers: 69 cents, 99 cents and $1.29, depending on the recording company they come from.

He also said Apple worked with all the major record labels to get songs free of ''digital rights management'' technology that limits people's ability to copy songs or move them to different devices.



  • Too little too late. I've already jumped ship for Amazon for my digital music purchases. Not only is all of their music DRM free, it is also generally much less expensive - as much as $5 less for a new release. They also offer a nice downloader that automatically puts your downloads into your iTunes library.

    Competition - it's a good thing.
