What will Apple Do About Price Shoppers?

  1. Change match logarithms so that purchased mpegs don't match?

  2. Lower their prices to match Amazon and others?

    I wonder if Apple realizes that they gave the consumer a price shopper tool.

    Last night I was watch the Sopranos episode "In Camelot". It ended with the theme from the Jackie Gleason Show, "Melancholy Serenade". That song took me back to my childhood.

    Tonight I went to the iTunes store and was surprised that it sold for $1.29. I then went to the Amazon store and bought it for $.99. I downloaded it and added it to iTunes. It was a 161 kbps mpeg. I matched it. Deleted it. And now have it as an iTunes 256 kbps.

    I was willing to try this as I have had a 100% match rate with my perviously purchased non-DRM mpegs that I bought in the past.

    So what will Apple do?
