Just don't blame Bono! Apple iTunes music sales PLUMMET

phil dude


We reached the point where new music is competing against an ever increasing back catalogue. In some sense the netflix model might be the only way the music industry will survive...

Only they will not. They would offer a crap service and a pay through the nose service, and keep complaining that people aren't paying for stuff. Movies are the same, but a different curve, but then we actually have netflix. And the selection is a small fraction of what is available.

Guess what? I can go to walmart, target or best buy and you should look in the $1 CD bucket sometime...

$5 DVD and blueray $9 (yes, can you believe the Hobbit is already in the $5 box?). I don't even have a blueray player, but i was thinking of getting one!!
