iTunes Packaged Deals

Hello IGWers,

This is more of a rant than a stupid invention. I have been trying like mad and failing to get multiple songs from iTunes. The purpose of iTunes is to be able to buy the songs you like no matter what. I’m not super concerned with the artists that don’t want to list on iTunes. That is their prerogative.

I am super mad about the fact that if you choose some rare songs it is quite likely that you have to buy an entire CD in order to get the songs. On a self selection music system, when should this ever be the case? iTunes stop busting my chops here. I want one song, not 14 and I’m not about to pay you another $10.00 just to get that one song.

Jobs…figure this out. Btw, you got lucky if you based your iTunes price to a gallon of gas. Now people can get 4 songs in comparison instead of 2 when you started. Nice work.

To iTunes becoming a self-healing body!



How Innovative is the Best Price Guarantee?

Hello IGWers,

I was shopping around for a flight yesterday and I came across another gem of the airline industry. If you weren’t already less than excited about the lack of innovation for the customers, it gets worse. The best price guarantee is one of those hidden nuggets about the airline industry. Some airlines will take the lowest commercial price. I’m not complaining about receiving lower airfares, I’m all for that. I just think the only airline commercial I ever see is something generic like “Fly the friendly skies.” Man, that is pathetic. You have real cost savings and you are advertising friendly skies. Airlines, how often are their unfriendly skies really? Every time that happens its 9 hours in the terminal anyways.

Please airlines for the sake of all parties involved. Advertise the best price guarantee. Take off the surcharge on the bags, speed up the check-in line, don’t make me get a cavity search after going to Starbucks, give me a can of soda for under $3.00 and speed up the seat belt routine.

Well, I guess I joined the laundry list of people who have ranted against the airlines.

To airline innovation gone right!
