Apples takin it's music to the Cloud

So there have been a few blog, blurbs and quotes from various exes from the music game about the impact of the Cloud on the music business and most of them have not been disposed to it.  Pretty much the same reaction to every innovation in to this industry.  However, this should be last bell the majors get to hear before they get knocked out.

So along comes Apple and they are going to use the Cloud for iTunes.      Ok music business can we just stop with the I don't think so and get on to how can this help us, the artist and the fans without doing more damage to the one area that still drives 75 percent of the music business retail.
the big hold-ups to a streaming iTunes music service was the recording industry--it had been caught on the hop when Apple revolutionized the digital music industry and then stole control of huge chunks of the business right out from under the feet of those who thought they were in charge. Nervous about ceding more control of the next-gen in digital music services (streaming content from cloud-based systems) the recording industry is now wary.

BTW there were many others way before Apple they just have gotten the press and again I point out that vast majority of profits are still with physical good.  That is why NBN resigned with Tommy Boy in case your wonderin they aint 1 download rock/rap star.
