Maybe the newly chastened Sony are prepared to be more reasonable. If this report is right, they've signed a deal with Apple re catalogue availability on iTunes Aus and Japan.

MacDailyNews still have their typically upbeat reporting style.

Eh? I read your post four times and am still confused.

For the non-Aussies out there... Here's the key quote from the original article on theage.com.au that MacDailyNews refers to:

"AFTER launching in a blaze of publicity last year, the Australian arm of Apple's iTunes store has finally agreed to sell the music of major-label behemoth Sony BMG."

Lesson of the story?

Steve Jobs is a hardass.


Sony caved in and iTunes songs are still 99 cents...Times to make a shrine to the patron saint of price fixing.

Jebus Google, just buy Apple already...
