Competition is … well … good for customers. No, it’s great for customers. Just to show how great it is, Amazon has just lowered the price on a lot of the music you care about to only $0.69. So far, I have to admit that these are hot new releases that everyone wants to get on their devices. That $0.69 is 20-cents lower than what they initially went for, and cheaper than most of Apple’s iTunes offering of $1.29 for the same tracks.
Some will say that .AAC has a better sound than Amazon’s mp3, but I honestly don’t think that matters to the majority of customers. Additionally, I don’t think that their is a big quality difference between the two formats.
So what should happen now? It’s simple, Apple has to lower their prices. Lower them to remain competitive, and because it’s right for customers. For more information or to make your purchase, visit Amazon’s MP3 Page.
