At least in the e-mail offer to extend the service to September 30th 2003 I got the following image. One could interpret it to mean that it will be $49.95 a year without rates going up after the first year based on the wording. Did Apple goof? Or is this their intent? You can see the image for yourself here: http://www.mac.com/email/Production/en/images/gftrial_9_30_btn_joinnow.gif or below.
