ITUNES Prices Rise

(From Cynopsis)

APPLE put an end to uniform pricing at the ITUNES store recently, introducing three pricing tiers (.69, .99, $1.29) that boosts the price of many of the store's most popular tracks by 30%.

The shift comes after music labels pushed for years for the right to try and squeeze more money out of their hit songs.

To help surgarcoat the price increase, Apple offered to upgrade all tracks purchased to its highest quality 256 kbps AAC encoding standard, including songs previously purchased.

This kind of sucks, but I guess we have to live with it, no?
