I’ve been testing spotify music service lately. The basic idea is that (1) once you have an account, you can (2) listen to pretty much any music you can think of via that service. If you buy the membership, then you can also (3) download as much music as you want.
There’s one really interesting thing about this service: ownership.
After testing the service… I see absolutely no reason to purchase any music ever. Why would I? I can just go to spotify and play it. There’s no point to purchase music (I don’t know why they even bother selling music in the store, since anybody can listen it anyway) if you have this service.
I don’t “own” the music and don’t store it on my computer… but don’t really need, since the content is available anyway when I’m online.
I wonder how this would work in the gaming industry.
P.S. If you wanna test it, google for “spotify invite”… but you didn’t hear that from me, m’kay?
