Music Diary Notes: Amazon Launches $0.69 Pop Singles Store!

When Apple introduced variable pricing, the purpose was for music labels to be able charge more for popular songs … and to push people o buy albums. There was supposed to be a huge library of $0.69 songs … but anyone who has browsed the store knows that most everything is either $0.99 or $1.29 – or is the crap on albums that nobody wants!

This morning I hit up as usual (for the free Android app of the day), and I find that Amazon has launched a new $0.69 singles store! As the site says:

Instantly buy all the bestselling new songs for only $0.69 each and gift your favorite songs to your friends. Use Amazon’s Cloud Player to upload songs and albums purchased from the Amazon MP3 Store.

If you are looking for the latest pop hits, this is a great way to get the songs for ~40% less than on iTunes!

Head to the $0.69 Singles Store and get your fill of the latest hits!

Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
