    99 cents per song?

    So...FSU students will get the same deal the rest of the US gets?

    I'm not seeing the advantage there...

    my guess

    My guess is that FSU will be allowed to bundle the iTunes installers with other software on their CDs for new students. There doesn't seem to be any hint of a discount for students, but one point that the article makes/lists is that some students are upset by the mandatory fee for those Napster subscriptions that are going on with other schools.

    More iTunes Confusion...

    " In an effort to prevent illegal file sharing on campus, Florida State University is on the verge of finalizing a deal with Apple to bring free iTunes software to students and allow them to download music for 99 cents per song"

    Last I checked, iTunes is free, and songs cost $.99. Students at Florida State should get used to playing second fiddle to students at a school like Duke. It's just foreshadowing for what will happen after college.


    Kind of.

    Oh, and like with or without this deal they wouldn't know to use Kazaa or the like...
