    how much have you spent on itunes ?
    similar to the thread thats going round asking 'how much have you spent on apple products' but this is just for itunes.

    it can be music, movies, music videos anyting that itunes sells.


    mine is around 17 pounds.

    Nothing!

    Maybe someday I will. But I can't get used to the idea that ONE song is .99, that seems a bit spendy to me. Plus, I get tired of songs (and movies) very quickly.

    hey christm you're from devon as well amazing, great county huh? Devonistheshire.

    Anyway i too think 0.79 is a lot of money for one song, the americans get it cheaper, no surprise, but anyway a ten track album still works out at nearly 8 which is only marginally cheaper than a CD, but i suppose every little helps, as tescos say. ( i don't shop there mind, god no)

    Well, I have 113 .m4p files, but as a whole bunch of free 1 & 2 song iTunes gift cards we were giving out at work were due to expire, I'd say about 60 of those songs were freebies

    Specs:
    i dont have no mac's
    only a few bucks of my own personal money...i got blessed with two 30 dollar iTMS gift cards otherwise i would have spent a bit more on music but i got it all for free due to the gift cards

    i do not understand how people can really complain that much about 99 cent songs...for example, the new kelly clarkson cd is 13 songs...that comes out to about 13.80 after tax if you were to buy the songs individually....samgoody.com has that album for 13.89 after tax and it is on sale for 6 bucks off....i think the pricing is extremely reasonable (note: tax rate of 7percent used because that is what it is around me and seems to be about average in the US)

    note2: i dont like kelly clarkson, it was just the first cd listed on samgoody.com
    note3:i dont like samgoody either, it was just the first place i thought to look to buy a cd online

    Well, since I switched to Mac I've been a good boy and kicked the habit of Limewire.

    Now I have spent around $95 for Music and 2 Movies. I think the pricing is very reasonable. Plus with me no matter what I never like all the tracks on one CD so I'd rather just pick the ones I like.

    Bagss... WOW, thats some extensive spending there, nice music collection I bet.

    I can't be bothered to check, but around 20 seems right. I bought a couple of exclusive EPs, and a few other songs but most of my (95) iTS tracks where free (through competitions/promotions or just the ones that are free anyway).

    i think its very reasonable at 0.79p per track (UK). I heard on a steve jobs interview it may have been the one with bill gates and steve jobs together - that apple makes very little money on each track from itunes but most of the money goes to the artist/record company. but apple must be making something on the music and the fact that the music that is DRM protected only works on ipods that is where they are making their money.
