they don't make money off itunes they make money off selling on music downloads. the software itself doesnt make them money the music does.
so do you hate your local record store?...do you hate newegg? same thing. Neweggs uses a website and shopping cart to sell stock. Apple use itunes.

again that is controlled by the record company. The average price for a cd is 24 aus dollars. Say an album with 14 - 15 songs you are paying towards $1.50 per song.

im talking american dollars, here an average CD can be sold as low as 10$, even that is overpriced though. specially since half the songs on CD's arent that good.

If you don't like the CD, don't buy it. Simple as that.

I am talking new release cd. Generally the older the cd is the cheaper it will be. But you can't base cd prices on 'how good they are' seriously thats the silliest idea i have heard. A cd or song you think is rubbish could be someone elses favourite.

whats wrong with apple?

they charge 200$ for a 2gb ipod and people buy them. i can get a 2GB mp3 player for 60$, who cares about all the bells and whistles, it plays music, thats all it needs to do really.

they charge 600$ for a crappy phone.

they think that that Mac OSX is better than vista

----------------

1. its an apple product? thats why I love it!
2. dont even talk about protection, microsoft doesnt even allow songs outside of URGE to enter the Zune for 3 days! and legally they have to protect their music
3. mac looks 43943948 better then that ugly windows
4. well, how else will they make money? they need some profit

1. Fanboy.
2. Thats why you use Creative Labs or something.
3. Thats just opinion.
4. Nobody works for free.

Apple products are nice in terms of ergonomics, but I prefer my winedoze.
