The iTunes influence, part one: How Apple changed the face of the music marketplace

The iTunes influence, part one: How Apple changed the face of the music marketplace | The Shape of Music to Come | Scoop.it

"On April 28th, the iTunes Store basked in a milestone 10th birthday. Two years before its 2003 launch (as the iTunes Music Store), Apple introduced the iTunes client as a desktop music management program and implemented it as the device manager for the first iPod later in 2001. In those two years, Apple laid the groundwork for what can reasonably be called the iTunes era of music."

damn right! kill the record industry!
Aaron Payauys's curator insight, November 15, 2014 12:59 AM

This article is jammed pack with tons of great reasons to know. I find it strange that the whole record company stealing instead of doing their real job finding the next big thing. Also the music talent that we lack today is limiting us to another world of music.

William Hopewell's curator insight, December 2, 2015 3:48 PM

A huge point in this article talks about how record labels and artists decieve the public and the fans. High ticket prices and albums that only have 1-2 excellent songs with the rest as fillers don't help the cause. Only true fans who adore the aritst will purchase these expensive tickets but for those who like the music they won't purchase these. I understand that it is a celebrity and that money must be made somehow but this is ridiculous. Along with releasing an album with half-baked songs. Of couse the best songs are released as singles but the other ones should be able to be released as singles too. Albums that only have 1-2 good songs are most likely record labeled controlled albums.
