I Suppose It Depends On What You Mean By “Deal”

I’m a huge fan of Amazon’s MP3 store. Downloadable music, in universally-playable MP3 format (i.e. works with everything, not just with the iPod), with no DRM, for a reasonable price is a pretty compelling proposition. And every day they offer a different album as the “Daily Deal” for a steeply discounted price (usually $2-3), which has provided me a bunch of opportunities to build out my music collection.

That being said, I’m not sure in what universe this qualifies as a “deal”:

Not A Deal, Really

I’m pretty sure they use tracks from this album (like the Chipmunk-ed cover of Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies”) as torture devices at Guantanamo Bay.

So if you’ve been looking for an opportunity to spend $3.99 to feel like a prisoner of war, today’s your lucky day!
