Thanks Apple, But Still Pricey

It looks like Apple is winning its battle against the labels to keep music at $0.99/song through the iPod music service.  I think having a flat rate is the way to go, and kudos to Jobs for not caving under the pressure to raise prices.

But, am I the only one who thinks that $0.99/song is still too expensive?  Unless you're paying a mall-based retail shop a bloated $20 or so for a new CD, the fact is, it's still cheaper to purchase the CD than it is to download the tracks.  (And, I realize some people may not want the entire CD, but many people do.)

Because electronic downloads ease the manufacturing, distribution, and some middleman expenses, I'd expect electronic versions of music and movies to be cheaper...
