Even More on CD Price Competition

On Saturday, I swung by Best Buy to see what was on sale. Call it market research.
The post Xmas sales continue, with a surprising number of new CDs priced at $9.99. I picked up Coldplay’s “Rush of Blood to the Head ” (a 2002 release) for that price — I had never seen it on sale before. I had downloaded several songs, liked ‘em, and went out and bought the disc — consistent with my belief that the crappy sounding MP3s work best as a modern equivalent of radio airplay.
Lastly, someone has been paying attention: Warp Records just put their entire catalogue up on their site as a fully downloadable collection of MP3s. Way cool, and very smart.
