Finally, someone actually looking at what's important--RELIABLE indicators! But that's admittedly hard if one's head is up one's ass like most commenters here,
That may be true for "meatspace", an apt term. However, a rational person need only look around a little to realize that there is an abundance of countless and limitless other "spaces" which are created by merely looking. Sad to say, many of Apple's potential competitors don't seem to realize this. But I think IBM sanely does and is preparing to "play nicely" with its new partner and ally.
I think Apple has done a great job in sponsoring, designing, and managing these iTunes Festivals: Great venue at London's Roundhouse Theatre; attendance limited to a safe and manageable number; lottery-style ticket distribution; live streaming for the rest of the world; good variety of acts.   I enjoyed the SXSW Festival and, in particular, Soundgarden's impressive performance of their entire "Superunknown" album.   They're probably scoring a lot of PR points with...
So what? Those 500M iTunes customers most likely include many who don't bother with FB and/or whose musical tastes don't include the acts appearing at the Festival.

Longer periods tend to be more significant, the longer they are. But this iTunes/App Store anniversary is significant both because it's still so young, because it's SIX years old, AND because over 75 Billion apps have been downloaded in that short of time. Few other activities or...
Well put!
Our societies are deeply involved with robot-assisted production. Sooner than YOU think, there will be more jobs created for those who are willing to learn new skills which are not replaceable by machines. Maybe sooner than YOU think there will be fewer excuses for those UNwilling to learn new skills and to work to be supported by those who ARE willing to learn and to work.
Oooo, that's so unfair! Seems copying really isn't a viable alternative to innovation. Who knew? Answer: Apple.
