Investors applaud the new music venture, but Apple must must address core
weaknesses
STEVE JOBS HAS DONE IT AGAIN. In the face of shrinking market share and
mediocre financial performance, Jobs has found a way to get people excited
about Apple Computer one more time. Now the magic involves Apple’s new
iTunes Music Store, which offers more than 200,000 songs from all five major
record labels, downloadable from the ‘Net at 99 cents apiece, no
subscription required. All of the early reviews are raves — by most
accounts, the service is far easier to use than rival Web-based music
services, with software that shows Apple’s usual flair for design and ease
of use.
