iTunes wants to charge me more for something that costs less?

They want how much?

Last week at MacWorld Apple finally announced that the vast majority of the music on iTunes would be DRM free and that prices on a lot of back catalogue tunes would actually go down. I guess this is in response to Amazon’s MP3 store which is cheaper and also DRM free. All good news so far. I thought I might upgrade my existing music to the new 256kb DRM free format so imagine my surprise when I went to the iTunes store to find that to “upgrade” my music collection I have to pay more now that each song or album actually costs less. Not sure how that works, but you can be sure I shan’t be “upgrading”!
