A Buck Twenty-Nine

Matt Rosoff on the price for popular digital songs going to $1.29 industry-wide:

I can’t imagine Amazon’s excited about raising prices in a recession—they’re probably responding to price increases by the record labels, which were made possible by Apple’s capitulation. Good luck with that!

So it’s Apple’s fault that Amazon raised prices. Uh-huh.
