Canadians Could Pay More for iPods

According to an article by Jane Black for BusinessWeek online, Canadians may soon have to pay higher prices for every CD-R and hard drive used in MP3 players like the iPod. The Canadian Copyright Board has plans to increase the levy on CD-R media from 21 cents to 59 cents and increase the levy on hard drives as well.

“There’s more. The price of Apple’s (NasdaqNM: AAPL -News ) popular iPod MP3 player would increase by 33%, from $300 to $400, if the levy is imposed. A 60-gigabyte car stereo from MP3 maker Rio would face a $1,260 tax. Twenty five countries, including most of the European Union, have introduced similar plans. The U.S. already imposes levies on digital media, including digital audio tapes and recordable CDs designed especially for audio.”

Mac: Robs iPod Exporter 1.0 Released

“I did not support sorting by Artist, Album, etc. because reading all the MP3 ID3 tags takes a long time. If you tried other applications that do this method of indexing you know what I mean. I find 90% of the time I just need to grab a file or two and want to get in and get out. So I would rather not wait for a long start-up delay due to reading every ID3 tag on every MP3. And saving a file of the last load doesn’t work for me as the contents of my pod change frequently. I wrote this software for my needs, yours may be different. “
