For years I (and all those around me) have been saying it is absolutely crazy that digital versions of hard ‘things’, be they books, films, soundtracks, prints…whatever, ought to be cheaper because the basic material and overhead costs are NON-EXISTANT! iTunes then came up with the 70p single and that was great, exactly right. But now – NOW – the Beatles album is dearer than the hard version! Listen up: this is going backwards and any 5 year old could tell you that this is completely and utterly wrong! I bought the book ‘Maths for Mums and Dads’ (which is brilliant by the way) and even they say that 100-99=1, and 99 is less than 100 so I know I’m right (I have been doing it right all these years!).
Wise up digi-sellers and stop treating us like brainless, gimp-wearing slaves to the almighty interweb! Digital copies should be cheaper! All those who say Aye, raise your digital finger.
