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.
