Do you use ITUNES? Â
If so, you better start downloading your music now!
Starting tomorrow (april 7th), Itunes will be charging $1.29 for most of it’s singles. Â
That is a 30% increase. Â Yikes.
I am a faithful buyer of must but breaking through that .99 cent barrier will be a little harder for me. Â So buy your music tonight! Â Even if it’s that horribly cheesy The Climb song by Miley Cyrus, which I CANNOT stop listening to. Â I called A&E and they are sending over the intervention crew to see what the can do. Â Fingers crossed
But back to the music. Â The price hike is interesting. Â If the money is going to the artists, that’s great. Â If it’s going to Apple? Â That’s less great. Â The music industry is in trouble, making music (that many get for free anyway) more expensive, I don’t know how that’s going to help things. Â
I know that I will still buy music, I’ll feel more guilty for it.
UPDATE: Â I hate it when I’m wrong. Â According to my Itunes the changes haven’t effected Canadian prices yet. Â It’s just in the states. Â But let’s be honest, it’s only a matter of time…..
