The Death of DRM: I was right

Not to blow my own horn too much...

But looking back over my posts of the past I see that I accurately predicted the fall of prices on DRM-free music. A recap - I predicted that because DRM free music is compatible with the iPod, market forces (read: competition) would force Apple to lower the $1.29 premium price back to 99c for their so called iTunes Plus tracks. Well guess what, it happened. Mostly thanks to Amazon's excellent service I would imagine. (Now Amazon, please make it available internationally soon? K thnx).
