For the prettiest one

Whilst I am terribly happy for Mr Jobs and the remaining members of The Beatles on their managing to successfully sign a contract, would someone care to explain to me why iTunes is selling the albums for more than Amazon?

(Sergeant Pepper's - £7.99 on Amazon, £10.99 on iTunes).

I know Apple users are terribly loyal, but is it really worth 25% of the cost not to have to deal with those old-fashioned plastic discs?

(I speak as someone who hasn't bought music in hard copy for about five years, and gets 99% of his music through Spotify nowadays, which I'm perfectly happy to pay £10/month to get ad-free and on my mobile phone.)
