"three patents involving access to data storage through payment systems"   Wouldn't those patents impact other companies (like Amazon), as well?  Has Smartflash sued any other companies with these patents yet?
 that would be interesting; as it is, i think i'll pass
the iPad interface is poor, so much wasted space and tiny album artwork on the screen where the song is playing. Is it too hard to make album art large on a large screen?
 Could be that Ive is focused on the car - that cannot be a small undertaking.
 so, would it be fair to say that the difference doesn't:
Final Cut Pro and iMovie to be replaced with new Movies app!
How would you feel about subscription models moving toward other areas?  If you could no longer buy or own music or books, only pay a monthly fee to access media - are you fine with that? In an extreme model there was a recent story of automakers wanting to prohibit self-repair or modification of vehicles (link) - maybe we shouldn't own vehicles, only lease? Just curious about people's opinions.
I understand for pros making a living off the software -- if there's an overall increase in cost, that will be reflected in increased rates.  My problem is being a hobbiest who wants to use pro tools, I find it too expensive and dissauding.  I don't want another subscription model.  Right now I'm looking at Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, and using Aperture till it stops.
I have a hard time believing anything Monster has to say after this... http://www.bluejeanscable.com/legal/mcp/
i think the answer is that you're not supposed to own media anymore.  just subscribe for a monthly fee, and they'll stream it for you.  software, movies, music, books - it seems like it's all going this way, and when you stop paying, it's gone.  no need for an ipod, or high capacity devices, you can just access it for $XX/month. unfortunately, i agree with steve, i like to own.
