    Wait until this fall. This will give several months for the iPad to be on the market. Once sales start to fall, we will see adjustments on apps and the iPad too. The iphone is more reasonable today than it was when first intro-the same will happen here.

    Not THAT bad!

    I don't think prices are THAT bad, and they will come down. If an APP is too pricey I just don't buy it. There is a decent selection of stuff for .99 to 2.99, and many books on iBooks are $9.99 - MUCH less than you'd pay for the hardcover in the store, for example. Plus there are free ones! A lot of the pricey apps are the "technical" ones anyway, and those I don't need -- if you do, then it's an expense you may need to bear (and, again, much less than software is, for example).

    When the newness of the ipad wears off the feeding frenzy at the app store should slow down as well, mabey then we'll see some price reductions.

    Good to know. I'll definitely be waiting for some of these prices to drop. Until then, I have plenty to keep me entertained. IMO, it's their loss, by trying to overcharge they're getting nothing from me.

    PS: I've noticed lots of digital content in general being overpriced -- $5 for a magazine or to stream a movie, e-books more than paperbacks, etc. I discuss it more here.
