iTunes Store now infected with variable pricing, Amazon still $0.99

As promised, variable pricing has now been carried out on the iTunes music retailer. Already, we’re seeing a lot of the prime 10 singles and 33 of the highest one hundred hitting the highest worth-level of $1.29 (encoded as DRM-free 256kbps AAC). Fascinating as Amazon’s uncomfortably comparable prime 10 listing has all these tracks priced at $zero.ninety nine (encoded as DRM-free 256kbps VBR MP3). A handful of tracks (9 within the prime one hundred) do hit the upper $1.29 worth additional down Amazon’s record. Now, should you consider Steve (somebody who initially postured towards this worth construction), then it seems that the music labels are charging Apple extra for the rights to promote its music than Amazon based mostly on this quote attributed to Jobs within the Apple press launch from January: in April, based mostly on what the music labels cost Apple, songs on iTunes can be out there at considered one of three worth factors-sixty nine cents, ninety nine cents and $1.29-with many extra songs priced at sixty nine cents than $1.29.

Regardless, we all know the place we’ll be buying our Miley Cyrus any further.

[Thanks, Jesse]
