    I saw the free single of the week, clicked on it, and then clicked on the grey button. This box came up. I dismissed it. Click on the grey button again-- and did a double-take. It say "$0.99" :eek: Then I looked at the box and saw..

    Pretty cool, eh? I bet it changes as soon as they make it "Free" as opposed to "$0.99" but still...

    I thought it was pretty nifty.

    I've seen various odd messages from iTunes, some of which go away if you try again. Overall, it must be hard to maintain a store with constantly changing inventory and thousands of customers hitting it all the time.

    True... but this one is interesting in the fact that after about 5 minutes I clicked on the path again and iTunes refreshed itself.. and now that grey button read "Get Song" instead of "$0.99"

    Pretty interesting how Apple runs it.

    well at least you didnt end up spending the .99 on the song!!

    it must take quite a bit to maintain everything with the added inventory every week

    a bit off topic but is there a shopping cart function in the iTMS? i cant seem to find one

    I have gotten messages from iTMS also, such as not currently available. Like mentioned, when I tried again ti worked just fine. Overall no real complaint from me.
