Listening to this, very impressed that, without even bringing up the technical terms, you guys covered some major economic concepts. Good show.

Good show. Great insider perspective. So the prediction is, this is going up in a cloud shaped like an apple.

Great info on this topic. You almost have to applaud Apple for the innovative methods they come up with for taking suckas money and keeping the record labels in the game.

You don't buy an iCloud, and they own have 15 million songs available for download. They've actually sold billions of songs, and they're definitely in the black.

Dear goodness, do some research before sounding so confident in your misguided opinion.

Apple says that ITunes has "generated" billions of dollars.

If one had to pay for the use of those songs and then administrate the application, those are expenses that reduce the revenues generated.

I generate a million dollars in sales at my job, does that mean I made a million dollars?
