APPLE MAKES RECORD COMPANIES LOOK BAD. AGAIN: Having swept aside all the Major Label's half-decade of prevarication and panic, proving that music downloads can work in a legal context, Apple has now made the Big Five look like pieces of cheese once again. When the music industry were accused of keeping prices artificially higher in the UK than they are in the visa-protected US, the record labels made some lameass statement about "everything costing more in the UK", as if that made supernormal profits somehow alright. However, when people complained about the price differential between the American and British versions of the Mini iPod, Apple said "You're right" and announced an immedeate review. Can it merely be coincidence that everyone loves Apple and hates EMI, Universal, Sony Music...?
