whatever helps this guy sleep at night. we are all still waiting for the 1-2 million downloads a day. maybe this is why apple isnt rushing the music store. they know they already created so much buzz with the mac version, everyone knows what it is now and they know no one will come out with one as good as theirs.

Where is the Gibson guitar in the Apple ads? Is it in the print ads? I've seen all the video ads and don't recall a guitar in them at all. If a mac enthusiast doesn't even understand that that's what Tommy Lee is doing.... oh well.

Of course we still don't have sales figures for buymusic.com - are they embaressed to admit that with a much larger potential customer base that they can't even sell as many songs as Apple has?

I can't read the article, but reading just the blurb on macbytes make me realize what a d**k this guy is! I saw him on Howard Stern on E! the other night with Tommy Lee. This guy is a hack. Yea, he's made some money, but he's not a visionary and he's not taking anything to "the next level"

I believe that BuyMusic.com is going to the next level.

The next level of stupidity. Scott Blum is not just a d**k, hes a ****ing *******.

I'm kind of surprised their site hasn't been hacked yet... (although their are copies, eg. boycottbuymusic.com, etc.)

I concur with bennet here.

I mean for Scott blum to say they are just building on the ads, and then to go back and say jobs is on the wrong platform, and lie out of his teeth on his site, man. It gets worse every day he opens his mouth.

Yeah there are some stupid parodyes.

Like the ones in SNL or South Park are sometimes good, but for the Apple Switch Parodies or this BuyMusic Parody are just because the competition has a better product and they are scared.
