More About EMI
Well now I feel bad I didn’t say nicer things about EMI yesterday – Gizmodo says that according to an EMI spokesperson, “The iTunes premium price and AAC 256 kbps format are Apple’s Marketing decision.” I suppose that might mean that EMI would have been into offering full quality files without an increase in price, but Apple made them do it this way. Maybe. I still think it’s kind of an irritating way to do things – taking away the right to play your music on any device, and then charging you money to get it back – but maybe the blame doesn’t lie with EMI.
I used to work for EMI you know, back when I was first a grownup here in NYC. I’m still pretty sure I can blame them for how much that job sucked.
