Apple to consider subscription service

Recall the banter with RObert, Blaine, and myself….well this is back in the news again.

Given Apple’s strong relationship with the labels, insiders say Apple’s goal would be to offer 100% of its music catalog through its subscription service. Competitive services are currently able to offer up to two-thirds of their catalogs in their subscription plans because of licensing restrictions. According to sources, Apple would likely be negotiating terms where the labels would receive approximately 5 cents for each song downloaded and transferred to a music device, per month. By comparison, insiders say Apple surrenders approximately 64 cents to the labels on each of the songs it sells for 99 cents. Apple has said that iTunes has been operating at close-to break even, but has showed a slight profit in recent quarters.

My Worst Nighmare

My worst nightmare – Bucknell

Coach Williams was quoted earlier this season that playing KU in the tournament was his worst nightmare. Well, after the selections were broadcast on Sunday it dawned on me that KU’s foe on Friday – the Bucknell Bison – could be my worst nightmare. First round games are always tough and KU never seems to cover. Recall Holy Cross a few years ago, they scared the crap out of us in the round of 64. Oh yea….Bucknell and Holy Cross are both from the Patriot league.

And the Bison are good. They upended Pitt and St. Joes this season. Bucknell came into Ames and almost pulled the upset in the House of Hilton. Cripes…

The worst part of this at all – Doug Llewellyn is a graduate of Bucknell. Should KU win…yes. And if they beat Bucknell by 30…..so what. But I can’t fathom the fodder I would receive is KU were to play it close….or god forbid…even drop this one.

Let’s get this started.
