I just listened to Monkey Drums on Spotify for free. Smile

I'm not trying to be smart, but I'm thinking the next 25 billion downloads are going to come a lot slower for Apple. Most people that I know are using either Spotify or Rdio to get their music these days. That is why I really think that Apple needs a subscription service going forward. I just think they are sort of losing the next generation of music listeners with just downloads. I know that I have pretty much moved on from them.

I wouldn't mind seeing Apple launch a totally inclusive subscription service that includes TV shows and movies as well. A true Netflix, Spotify and cable killer. All in one.

Unfortunately, I think the content holders are too greedy to let that model exist. The technology certainly exists to do that.
