I would absolutely love it if Apple could explain their pricing to me. Just downloaded a song (Aloe Blacc’s “I Need A Dollar” if you’re interested). I had a choice of the album version at 4:03 for $2.19 or the “Radio Edit” – 2 seconds longer but only $1.19. Confuzzlement ahoy.
There’s also the small matter of disparity between countries. The US iTunes store has Adele’s 21 for $US10.99 (approximately $AU10.48) and $US1.29 per track (approx. $1.20) whereas in Australia we have to pay $AU16.99 for the album and $2.19 per song. With (as demonstrated) the Australian dollar so much stronger than the US & a number of other currencies, online retailers like Apple really need to address their pricing.
As a whiny woman from Ipswich once said, “Please explain?”
