Blender 100 names iTMS No. 2

The iTunes Music Store was awarded the number 2 spot in this year’s Blender 100 of the most sizzling stars, gadgets, bands and booties. The list is only available in the print edition. What’s really strange is that the iPod did appear anywhere in the list of 100. How could this be?

“Apple’s new music service is saving the record business, one download at a time,” writes Rob Tannenbaum in the August 2003 issue of the popular music magazine. ‘It’s a phenomenal success,” says Lyor Cohen, CEO of the Island Def Jam Music Group. ‘Kids are the laziest human beings on Earth, so I was thankful that someone made it easy to get music delivered in the comfort of your home.’”

Foo_Foo, the iTunes Music Store is absolutely revolutionary. Let me take a guess - you don’t use a Mac? Here in Australia I was watching a news report on music piracy and the reporter said that the iTunes Music Store was “the only hope for the music industry.” Perhaps an overstatement, but it IS truly fantastic. When it comes to Australia I will be praising it even more highly.
