Reply To: 27 Jun 15 – Taylor Swift: Apple Blinks
I’m not a huge Taylor Swift fan. She promised backstage passes to a guy named Charles but reneged on the offer because he was of the wrong demographic.
I wonder why for some professions and with some people the expectation is to work for free…
I’m pretty sure the trial period would have been part of a contract, Apple isn’t crazy. To be fair, Apple was offering 71.5% of subscription revenue after the three months, which is above industry standards.
Taylor was smart about this, if you want a big company to capitulate, enlisting the Twitter and Tumblr outrage mobs is a proven tactic.
I don’t think Steve being Steve would have anything to do with it
It’s a meme. Don’t let Nick troll you 🙂
