CNet is reporting that Apple is scheduling a music event for April 28th where the company may debut a new online music service.
#1) I really want to pay for music. Honest. I really do.
#2) File sharing has been a delightful disruptive technology that has torpedoed the music industry. I like torpedoes because a) you hear them coming b) there isn’t much you can do and c) explosions are cool.
#3) No one has put together what I would consider to be a reasonable alternative. $.99 has been rumored to be the price point for Apple music service.. that makes a decent amount of sense, but if the service puts any restrictions on what I can do with my purchase… buh-bye.
