Swiss iTunes price drop shock

Having just read an "El Reg" report about Brits moaning about the new "inflation/exchange" price increase in the UK iTunes, I thought I'd check the Swiss one. To my surprise an app/song previously costing Sfr1.10 now only costs Sfr1.00

A price drop!

I'll add that to my (admittedly small) list of "not everything in Switzerland only increases in price" list

I was about to write that hell must have frozen over if Apple actually acknowledged that the current Swiss Franc exchange rate is earning them xx% more than when they fixed their Swiss list prices, but this may be somewhat premature. As the second most important market outside of the USA (allegedly, don't ask me for a source), we're paying way too much for stuff that all comes out of the same Chinese factory however beautifully they package them in Cupertino, CA.
