The Big Apple Announcement: They’re No. 1!

Sep 9th, 2008 // 6 Comments

jobslego.jpgSince I couldn’t make it up to San Francisco to see whatever Steve Jobs wants to dole out to his music-listening public in person (mostly because I wasn’t invited), here’s an open thread in which we can comment on the revelations let loose by Steve Jobs at today’s “Apple: Let’s Rock” event. Already, he’s thrown down with the factoid that his company is the No. 1 music distributor in any format–ahead of even Wal-Mart and Best Buy–and that iTunes 8 is going to have a feature called “Genius,” which will make iTunes Store recommendations to users based on their past listening habits and that “rating” feature that I suspect maybe 10% of iTunes users actually put time into. (Oh well, at least it’ll defintiely be better at segues than Party Shuffle, am I right?) Anyway, have at it! [Gizmodo]

    I bought a sony mp3 cd player in 2002 with a car kit for $100. As long as you didn’t finalize the cd you can keep adding mp3s to it. It is still working great. Why would anybody buy Ipod? A drop from about 5 feet tends to break it. People tend to want to steal them. The hard drives die easy. And the battery tends to die in a few years.

    Comments are dead here because absolutely everything was predicted by the blogosphere over the past two weeks. It’s not Jobs’s fault, but his secrecy engine is dying out; people have gotten too good at shaking the right trees (Asian equipment manufacturers, accessory makers, etc.) to leak everything way in advance.

    @Chris Molanphy: He needs to go the Radiohead route and charge people for the info leak.
