apple drm-free revisted
i've recently upgraded my itunes in order to check out the itunes plus selections (tracks available without the DRM). i now have an option to pay even more for purchased albums to convert them to the new format. while i'm glad apple has provided the service, i think it's ridiculous to jack up the price of previously purchased music. the clincher for me on disliking the new service: the same albums are for sale for the same exact price now without the DRM as when i bought them. the least they could do is offer the same album-volume discount on the upgrade as for the original tracks.
