Speaking during the company’s recent Q2 conference call, Warner Music Group CEO Edgar Bronfman Jr made a number of comments praising Apple for its iTunes Store and devices. “The flight to iTunes and iPhone continues,” Bronfman Jr. said, according to a paidContent report. “Apple has proved to be the most adept software and hardware manufacturer out there in delivering content to consumers in a seamless and very attractive consumer experience. No-one’s gotten very rich betting against Steve Jobs - and I don’t want to be the first to do it.”

Bronfman, whose WMG benefitted from Apple’s acquisition of music streaming service Lala as a prior investor, also deflected questions on whether the move suggests an upcoming iTunes subscription service. “Apple is not currently a retailer involved in an access or subscription model,” he said. “I’d probably like not to speculate on what Apple’s plans are - it’s really interesting technology that it acquired in the Lala acquisition. That’s a question that Apple management should answer.”
