I would imagine it does have bugs. I don't think they really officially annouced it, and by that, no bouncing happy face has slashed a price on it.

Walmart, moreso than anyone else, knows exactly what does sell and what doesn't sell, so it's no surprise that they're focused on Britney and not Beethoven.

At 88 cents, they are clearly trying to run their same sort of financial bully game that every local hardware store knows in and out. Undercut and eliminate. But, 11 cents cheaper isn't enough.

Is this a dupe? I read that article a few days ago, but I'm not certain whether it was linked from MacBytes.

I don't understand why they are in it? No one makes money at 99 cents. How do they make money at 88 cents? Plus there has been no advertising for this. Oh well I hope WAl Mart loses money. I dis like them very much.
