Fast Company thinks they might be. http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/78/jobs.html Interesting quotes: Personally, I'm still suspect of the whole 99-cent DRM-limited lossy-encoded download model in general (not just Apple's flavor). I think for album buyers it offers lousy value compared to Redbook CD. It is interesting to see that some competitors are offering certain 79-cent downloads, 88-cent downloads, and also unlimited on-demand streaming for flat rate. I may still have some issues but at least some providers are working on adding more value, and I expect this to increase substantially. No, I'm not anti-Apple. And I'm not predicting that Apple will lose their grip on this market...I just acknowledge the possibility. And I'm glad we have pioneers in the tech field, and Apple is definitely one of them. Send flames elsewhere.
