Following the announcement of Starbucks’ partnership with Apple, the coffee kings have announced that they will begin giving away free iTunes downloads on October 2, all the way through November 7. They plan to give away a grand total of 50 million songs[…] Thanks to obeezy for providing this nice story on Digg.

gothicform: Are these going to be fair trade itunes songs that give the artists a decent cut?
streak: Next new feature: the iPhone automatically begins playing Starbux music as you enter a grocery store that sells the beans.
radink: no thanks.. 2 shitty companies coming together to overcharge you x2.
manningbc: so i guess Oct. 2 is when iTunes Wi-FI will be released.
mariasantos22: Yeah, why don’t they just lower their prices.. free music is great but not everyone wants that.
fluxion: i’d settle for half-price frappacinos
mrminty: iTunes and Starbucks. Wow, two things I hate have finally converged.
BBCmafia: See the old DRUG dealer way still works. Give it free, let em get hooked then charge.

QuickeningYak: Because otherwise, you’d have to download music and make your own coffee exactly the way you want it…. Oh. Wait. Nevermind.
Typhoon2009: I wish I was rich enough to give away that many songs.
