Sure. I get the need to own music. I've personally never felt a sense of ownership for my mp3 collection in anything close to the way I felt ownership of my CD's.
My point related to downloading music. Digital 'won' over physical because of convenience; and streaming (with offline caching) is far more convenient than downloading. It's just 'there' with zero wait.
Also, Spotify premium streams at 320kbps. AFAIK FM is 96kbps?
Thought it was bigger than that! Insensitive clod is insensitive
Ah well... My point is still that, based on the speed at which Spotify is growing (where available), the future is streaming.
Everyone I know (in the EU) has switched to Spotify.

We already know what Steve Jobs thinks of this:
""It's too slow. If you need a stylus you have already failed."
He notes that Microsoft's version of the Tablet PC had the battery life, weight, and expense of a PC. "But the minute you throw a stylus out, and you have the precision of a finger, you can't use a PC OS. You have to create it from scratch.""
If you haven't already seen it.
