Rob Glaser’s Changed Tune


Funny to see Rob Glaser change his tune so fast, in wake of iTunes. Right when iTunes was launched and RNWK announced its acquisition of, he was publicly saying that radio/streaming was a better model for online music. Now, three months later, it is a more watered-down tune: “We haven’t even unfurled our most competitive weapons yet,” he said, in this story. “We plan to get very aggressively into the à la carte model. It’s going to be a world where there are a bunch of different models. There are going to be a lot of ways for people to do this stuff.” Of course it sounds more rational now, doesn’t it?
