Many people argues that buying music from iTunes is the best way to enjoy digital music today. Around the world we see increasing trend that more and more people love this.
Yet still people argue whether that would be really the case of the future. Would we enjoy downloading and playing music online in the future, or would we rather play it live from the web instead?
Would the future iPod and iPhone be the place where we store our digital music, or would the internet instead becoming our giant jukebox?
I am imagining a future whereby people purchasing music from the web, and "downloading" those music to their "web" instead of downloading it to their local music player harddrives. By storing their music on the web, they can annotate their likes and dislikes and have the powerful "social networking" feature of the web discover even more tastes around the world that would match or enrich these individual's profile!
With that, people can enjoy and discover music in richer ways around the globe, as the networking and discovery engine help them match and discover tastes around the globe, than if they isolate their music individually inside their own "iPod" cubicles.
Would this be the more preferred way of how people would enjoy music in the future?
We shall see how the future goes. ;-)
