    Lovers Electric - Start Again

    I've made it into a habit to always grab the weekly iTunes freebies - most of the time they're really good.

    Anyone spotted the free song on the Aussie iTunes store for this week (16 December 08) yet?
    The status quo ain't what it used to be.

    Dunno if it's the Single of the week, but there is the free track.

    For reference, I just put into the Search Field of the iTunes store "single of the week" then looked down the bottom

    Has anyone noticed before this that while the single of the week, where it is featured, is still in fairplay DRM at 128kb, while if you go to the artist's section and select the relevant album, the same song is in itunes plus at 256k, free as well?

    Been a while since there's been an update - http://itunes.apple.com/au/album/cat...le/id356670050 is this week's. In reference to Entropy's post above, it seems to be in 256kbps :-)

    What do you mean "Been a while"? There's always a free song every week. You get to it from a badge on the home page of the iTunes Store in iTunes.

    The iTunes Store no longer has any 128Kbps songs--now all iTunes Plus (256Kbps). It's been that way for ages.

    I think he's referring to the thread. It's not updated weekly as it once was.

    Don't know if this has been commented on before, but I notice that the Australian iTunes store is now offering a free video in addition to the free song (BTW, I wouldn't bother with the song this week). Have they been doing that for a while?

    The free video started a couple of weeks ago. I thought it might have been an aberration but perhaps a pattern is emerging. It's nice to be getting more free stuff. The Yanks get a shit load every week.
