Wal-Mart starts test of online music offering|
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. began a test Thursday of its new 88-cent-per-song online music service, trying to capture more of the music market at a price that undercuts the 99-cent standard of its competition.Wal-Mart selling something at a loss to undercut and eliminate competition? I never thought I would see the day. 88 cents is a hell of a deal. The average Wal-Mart employee should be able to afford a single download in 10 to 12 years.
