i think itunes double albums are a wee bit on the expensive side do you agree

Most people would agree that Itunes music is more expensive than other download services. Try Amazon their MP3 music downloads offer better value than Itunes.
Yes iTunes is more expensive and if you can avoid using the software even better, its a clunky not very flexible solution compared to the alternatives, but it looks to not be as unstable as it used to be at least.
Convenience has its price.
Been an iTunes user now for several years and have had no problems with it. Yes, some albums can be a bit more expensive, but there are some real bargains on there too.
Another source is Play.com Admitedley only MP3 format available, but some very low album prices and at least iTunes will play MP3's too.
I dont use itunes anymore, i prefer to get me chewnz for nowt, so use websites that convert utube vids as downloadable mp3's, naughty but nice
i must add though that i have possibly spent £20,000 on music since i could breathe, thats how i justify myself for not paying anymore, and sometimes an album is so poor that i often regretted buying them in the first place.
Nice one RAP.......do you also expect photographers to work for free, just in case their photos are not to your liking, or not pay for food that you didn't like the taste of?
The debate continues.....
I have been an iTunes user for years the only gripe I have with them when you buy a movie or TV show you are unable to copy it to a DVD you have to watch it via computer unless of course you have TV leads, so you are stuck at your monitor (unless you have ripping software)
Well you'd also have to connect a DVD player to a TV in order to watch a DVD. Last I looked, these aren't included in the DVD case......
Yes but if you buy a DVD you can watch it on the TV and a portable generic media player
Mix in the DVD often being lower cost and its a point. But for convenience you pay.....
That's a good point - I find all of iTunes' DRM rubbish a real pain. I don't really object to paying for my music personally but once I've paid for it I don't want to find I'm then restricted in how/where/on what I listen to it. Apple have historically been poor in that respect IMO whereas non-DRM'd downloads from the likes of play.com and Amazon are much better.
Edit: In case that came across as full of jargon, DRM = Digital Restrictions/Rights Management, used by some companies to retain control over what you've bought after you've already bought it. Really bad for the consumer IMO.
itunes tracks sold on the store now are all DRM free. It started with iTunes plus and now is standard on all songs.
That's cool - does it apply to all other media they sell too or just music?
As far as I know its just music and video. Not films
