Corporate Logic

So I get a new cell phone from Verizon. I browse the V-Cast ring tones (my only option), find some I like, and head to download them until I see the price of $2.99. Yes, $2.99 for a brief clip of a song. That's absurd.

Looking at my other options, I can download the entire song in MP3 format right to my cell for $1.99, and I can't use it as a ring tone. If anyone can logically explain why three minutes of a song is worth $2, and why a brief clip is worth $3, I'd love to hear it.

That said, Song ID is kinda cool. You activate the feature, put it anywhere near a speaker playing a song, and the service identifies it. I'm not paying $3 for any song it finds, but it's fun to play with.

You have got to do a search for "super mario" and listen to the ring tone. It has got to be THE worst remix ever.
