Amazon (AMZN -0.1%) fires back at iTunes' (AAPL +0.6%) offer of the Beatles Box set, slashing its sale price of the 14-CD set - plus a DVD containing a “making of” each album, and free shipping - to $129.99, undercutting Apple's $149 deal. Apple sold 2M Beatles songs and 450,000 Beatles albums in the first week it made the songs available on iTunes.

    Why can't Amazon (AMZN) get more creative than that?

    Amazon was selling a "how to" book on being a Pedophile - so they can cut prices all they want but I'm never buying anything from them ever again.


    I may as well go Apple as Microsoft hasn't come up with a decent media player in the past three versions of Windows.
