battle buy

Well, as seems to happen with my Apple computer purchases of note, Apple announces an upgrade two seconds after I get the one I ordered. In this case, they've discontinued the iPod that I received, and buy.com has dropped the price ninety dollars. I've emailed them to see if they'll match their own price. It seems to be a little outside of their "official" pricematching policy, but the way it reads, it only applies to competitor stores, so it remains to see how they match themselves. They do have a 30-day return policy, so at worst, I could just return it and re-buy it at the lower price!
