Mix: Wooden cases, Music videos, Tesco, Yahoo vs. iTunes

Charles Arthur of Netimperative thinks Apple would be smart to start selling music videos (insead of giving them away with songs) since it’s an untapped market. “We know that people like watching music videos. Ask MTV,” he says.

UK-based supermarket company Tesco will soon start selling iPods and other digital products in select stores.

In an article looking at Yahoo’s new subscription music service vs. iTunes, Jupiter Research analyst David Card says the iPod is a huge factor in the battle. “There’s only one device that matters, and you can’t use it with Yahoo’s music service,” he says. [via Macworld UK]

Maybe the “ask MTV” thing was being sarcastic. MTV2 started to play regular programming like the Osbornes, maybe they’ll release MTV3 and their slogan can be “we really mean it this time…”

Selling music videos? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard! Who in their right mind would BUY a music video??

Re Peter Kinne Design’s wood case: that’s DESIGN???  Has the look of a DIY canopy for a rotting ‘74 pickup truck used to haul junk around.  ‘Classy’ look there, with that “layered” plywood style; reminds me of my treehouse when I was really, REALLY a snot-nosed tyke (as opposed to a snot-nosed old fart).  What, no MDF?  What a waste of wood, even if it’s recycled.  And such a deal at $43 (incl. s/h).  Just gives me slivers thinking about it.

Does that wood case look really huge to anyone else?

They should offer a videoclip to singles or so. Only to download if you want but in any case free of charge.

I might buy a few if the price (and quality) was right, but I prefer single-artist DVD compilations of music videos.  I have dozens of them.
