Russell Crowe got our hopes up in this article: iTunes music store set to open. Today is Friday and it’s not open. But here’s some other articles stating that it will open in mid june.
While they seem to be agreed of the month it’s opening, the cost per track seems to be up for grabs with 99 cents per track through to $1.80.
There’s a quote from someone that is getting used a lot in these article stating that if it’s $1.80 per track, or too expensive they’ll stick to Big W for $17. Well yeah that makes sense, I’d buy all my cds from Big W too if I could always find what I wanted. Big W is great for top 40 stuff, which 90% of is crap and quite frankly $17 is too expensive for crap.
Unrelated but Appley side note for aussie readers who saw the late night channel 10 news bit on the Nokia phone that will apparantley give the iPod a run for it’s money even though it’s over $1000 and only holds 3,000 songs. WTF? How much did Nokia pay for that advertorial?
