AN APPLE FOR THE STARVING: Apple have flexed their muscles, and now Do They Know It's Christmas is available on iTunes. What's interesting is that Apple have won: it's costing 79p. Band Aid will get GBP1.49 for each download, because Apple have said they'll make a donation of 70p for each copy they sell (tax-deductable, cheers), but what this really shows is the immense sway Apple have in the music industry - they've faced down Ure, Geldof and their competitors to keep their 79p a pop deal solid. They're offering DTKIC for less than anywhere else, but giving the same cash to charity. It's quite a good place for them.
