But Jobs isn't one to let himself be lapped by those who see the future more clearly than he does.

Well, you can't accuse them of sitting on the fence! The authors clearly feel the music purchase model is dead. I'm not convinced though. Having access to millions of songs at one is fine, but I only listen to a few dozen tracks in any one month. For me, the subscription model offers little, while the idea of cancelling my subscription and having nothing to show for it has no appeal to me.

I think the download model is still priced far, far too high though.
