So I was reading this article in the Washington Post about the death of the "traditional" record stores... http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A20620-2004Feb6.html ...and I came across the following sentence: The above is in the middle of page 2 of the article, in case anyone is fact-checking me on this. At any rate -- has anyone got the dollar figures to back this up? I thought for sure Apple was turning a profit on the actual iTunes songs. If the songs are indeed merely a "loss leader" offered for the sole purpose of selling more iPods, ya gotta wonder... how long is that particular biz model sustainable? Or are they planning on jacking the prices for iTunes downloads in the near future? Anyone have the inside scoop on this???
