Hmmm... 10% of music revenue was downloads, downloads are higher margin so it was more than 10% of profits. Apple has what, like 80% of of the download market or more? Apple is probably responsible for 10% of the music industry's profits right now.

You think they've caught on that this is all a good thing? Think they'll stop whining that they want a cut of the iPod sales and start being grateful that Apple saved their tails?

Oh, and can someone explain to Bloomberg that CDs are digital too?
