As a musician: As long as the payout % stay the same I don't see it as a big deal. It would be nice but I think the main point has already been made. WHY would Apple need to do this? *Asks question while downloading a single for $1.29 on ITunes*


They both sell 256kbps mp3s. How are people complaining about the quality of iTunes vs Amazon mp3?


256kbps aac and 256kbps mp3 are not the same quality.

This is a weird study. Firstly, why wouldn't 100% of the people surveyed want them to price-match? Who were the 14% who wouldn't want that, Apple employees??

Secondly, Apple would never be able to fully price-match, as Amazon pays the difference from those super-cheap deals to the labels (meaning, every time you see an album on sale for a week at $3.99, Amazon is actually paying the 3-bucks-plus difference directly to the labels).


Nonsense article... Is it just me or doesnt Hypebot produce a lot more "nonsense" articles than ever?


Price matches really don't bother me, but Amazon.com has a much higher rate of free and promotional offers, and much better deals than iTunes, such as having 100+ albums for only $5 each month.


They will stick with their pricing until the market starts to shift away from itunes.

Apple are a smart bunch of cookies, they have cornered the marker for people that still pay for music.
