Quote from the News item:

"Single tracks can be downloaded for 99 cents (approx 50p) while albums will cost $9.99 (approx £8.50)"

Unless my brain is atrophying either a single = 85p or an album = £5

$9.99 = £5.96

$0.99 = £0.59

when the functioned is launched in the UK we're bound to be paying more then the yanks, prob around 80/90p

These days an album will have about 12 tracks on average so it's $11.88 (£7.08) for 12 single tracks or $9.99 (£5.96) for an album of 12 tracks. A bit like "buy 10 and you'll get 2 free".

Currently on Virgins Megastore UK download site tracks are as little as 60p

yeah - I saw - looks good if you can get on the site. whenever I try and get on there i get into what can only be described as a misrouting loop

if your going to get charged 6 quid plus for a copied album, which is all you get when you download really regardless of the source, are you honestly going to buy it? I think this is pretty unrealistic when you can buy an original album online for £8, and this will most likely drop when downloadable media is fully (legally) available.
