"Digital downloads are dead" says Numecent CEO Osman Kent | Music business | Scoop.it

Always interesting to see what's going on in other industries: here, Numecent's CEO prophesies the death of download for softwares. 

 

"We can take any Windows applications--Photoshop, Office, whatever, you name it--and we have a magic piece of software that can cloudify these applications on our servers. But there's even more magic: We are able to bring [these applications] back to you 20 to 100 times faster than what a digital download would have taken, and we execute them on your machine without installation--and it even works offline."

 

Sounds a bit like music streaming to me.
