Thread: Apple Releases FaceTime for Mac With a $0.99 Price Tag

is a discussion within the

Mac News

forums, a part of the

If you spend $1000 I think spending $1 will be OK to get the most of it. Apple sure are douches though...

    99 cents is cheap but it should be free :/

    I can see that, don't really know why, but whatever...

    I loves me some free stuff, but, Apple is a business, not a charity. The 'give updates for free' model doesn't always work. And the 'ad revenue' model is one I hate. Micropayments and microfees, I think, are perfectly reasonable ways to price minor updates in-between major releases as long as it's optional and you aren't forced into it (within certain timeframes).

    You buy a new Mac, you get the current version of iLife. If you have the old version, you have to pay for an upgrade. Complaints about FaceTime for free on new Macs is a bit over the top. Of course, that's just my opinion; I could be wrong.

    You mean pay Apple 99 cents to be able to clip the song that you ALREADY BOUGHT for 99 cents and play it as a ringtone? Yeah I still remember that giant ripoff they were trying to pawn off to consumers as an amazing deal. "It's only 99 cents to re-buy 25 seconds of a 3+ minute song. Good deal guys!" Same thing with this. There are better FREE options out there that don't limit you to speaking with and seeing people only running OSX or iOS.
