Tanner Samp's curator insight, January 19, 7:15 PM

This article was a very informative and well put together sheet of various stats regarding music sales in 2013. I was surprised not that music streams were on the rise and sales continually dropping, but that while digital sales were down, the vinyl sales are climbing; we have finally come full circle last year with format sales.

Apple decides to partake within the online streaming competition. Apple plans on developing and releasing iRadio, which is a comparison to Spotify and Pandora. Since the iTunes 11 update was released, this gave greater evidence of service being available soon enough.

Alex Capps's curator insight, November 9, 4:22 PM

Apple plans to take on music streaming by creating iRadio. Apple, willing to take on Spotify and Pandora, will deal with labels directly will offering premium rates. That means iRadio won't be limited to certain countries and would also have less skips.
