I want to get a song. I have talked about it here before. It is available, and it is on an album and able to buy as a single.
So why don’t I get it? That answer is simple. Apple considers ever one of it’s customers to be little idiots that can’t do maths.
The song that I wanted to buy would cost me $1.69 to buy (which is still a rip off, considering the $AU exchange rate… explain that one too Apple…) but if I looked on my iphone through iTunes there and saw the same song through the album, it wanted me to pay $2.19 for it.
So, lets get this straight. I can pay $1.69 for a single song, or if I look at buying an album, I can buy the SAME EXACT SAME SONG FILE for $2.19… or $0,40 more???
Is it just me or does everyone else out there get sick of Apple trying to tell me what I should be paying? if it’s not bad enough that a single song file that costs $0.99 US costs us in Australia $1.69, even when the $AU is worth $1.06 US… I can’t see why we should be paying that much. It’s the SAME servers, the SAME bandwidth, and the SAME deal that the artirts are getting per song.
Please, can someone from Apple, or anyone at all!!! Please tell me why we have these inconsistencies. And, why are we paying so much just because we are in Australia?
Apple has recently become the biggest company in the world. Not just in IT, but IN THE WORLD. they make more then enough money, but stil they pull this shit on their customers.
As a bit of reference, this is what has caused people to go online looking for torrents and P2P downloads. You charge to much, and you are no better then any other greedy corporation out there.
It was Mc Lars that said it perfectly…
You know, we just wanted a level playing field.
You’ve overcharged us for music for years, and now we’re
Just trying to find a fair balance. I hate to say it, but:
Welcome to the future.
