Apple shed core prices

In what seems to be a trade-off to allow iTunes to flog DRM-free songs from all the majors, Apple is being reported as being about to abandon its one-price-for-all stance. Some tracks will drop (in the US) to 79 cents; some will remain at 99 cents, but things that people will want to buy in large numbers are going to cost more.

More than a dollar for a download? Hey, at long last: something that has the very real promise of being an iTunes killer.
