It’s finally here. After what seems like an eternity of waiting, the Apple iTunes Music Store is available to Australian residents.
p. With various holdups and delays, attributed by many to a record company holding out for extra cash from the deal, the store launched today.
p. While I think that the $1.69 per single is overpriced (compare that to AU$1.31 in the USA), I would have to say that I am extremely happy at the album price. Most albums seem to be $16.99, which is a dramatic improvement on the $30 – $32 you pay on an album in the store.
p. So, like others are saying my credit card had better get ready for some action!
