Apple Computer dismissed rumors Friday of rising single-song prices at its iTunes online music store, saying that it planned to maintain the price tag of 99 cents per song.
Reiterating comments made by Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs last week, an Apple spokeswoman said the company is maintaining its single price tag for individual songs. The comment came in response to an article in the New York Post reporting the likelihood of higher prices as a result of new contracts with record labels. As earlier reported, some full-album prices have already begun to climb on the service.

Thats great! I just wish it was $9.99 for all albums as Steve said at launch. I am also getting tired of seeing "Partial Album" and "By Song Only." I see no reason why 8 out of 10 songs are online for some albums. And why do I have to buy "Just Push Play" (Aerosmith) By Song Only (costing $11.88)?
I bought "Honkin' on Bobo" (Aerosmith) when it was released, and could not buy the album. I had to buy the seperate songs to get it. I had more then enough Pepsi bottle caps so it was worth it. Now "Honkin' on Bobo" can be bought for $11.88 - not $9.99 Mr. Jobs.
