iTMS mispriced War Child
Apple's iTunes Music Store was forced to "Help: A Life in the Day" for over a day to correct a pricing error, after it "racked" the album for two pounds less than the price demanded by the charity. Julian Carrera of War Child in a report from The Register said: "in terms of pure volume, iTunes has really come to the party - and will generate huge sales/profits, which will go straight into our projects in war zones." The charity's own website saw over 18,000 downloads of the album in the first two hours it was on sale, according to the report.
