    When I first read apple's press release about this and saw Jack Johnson's album mentioned, I got really excited because I bought it last night and I thought maybe there was a small chance I downloaded the 300,000,000th song. But who knows.... Anyways, it's a good album.

    Apple saved their butts. Apple is focused on the experience. They need Apple. Apple will NOT be raising the price of downloads.... 99cents is the sweet spot right now.



    Apple gave us back our MTV.
