I was reading Ian Roger's post on the future of digital music where he observes that
in a manner of speaking iTunes is a spreadsheet that plays music
. I've always been so bowled over about how well Apple unifies the digital music experience that I've never really thought about it in those terms. Of course he's right, I guess the interesting thing is that it performs the task so well. On the otherhand maybe it's about time someone came up with a new slant on the song storage/management bit.
