          @schoeni And hopefully musicians of all stripes will be able to potentially earn a decent living from this model. @joanna

            @schoeni Which was going to be my next point. :) In truth, I think the huge profit margin days are largely over. Now it’s about discovery and building a loyal following. Hopefully, the Internet will make this process easier. @joanna

              @joanna If that cut will be sufficient, I have no clue. Also, Apple will have to convince a large enough base to shell out for their service. For that, they will have to be better than all the competition. @schoeni

                @joanna I have no clue how the streaming business model looks. My guess is Apple is betting on leveraging its huge user base to get some money in the game. I can only hope they realize that giving musicians a fair cut is critical. @schoeni

                  @schoeni For me the family use is a compelling case, also because we will probably not need to buy music anymore if steaming of their full catalog is available.

                    @schoeni That was my question does iTunes have greater coverage than Spotify? I always assumed so but don’t know of any actual comparisons. Also, if Connect actually takes off you could have a great ‘indie scene’ on Apple Music for the up & coming.

                      @ronnie Did you mean cheeks or toilets? <– Yes. I meant that to be ambivalent.

                          @shawna Morning, Sunshine! ☀️ Are the birds still chirping away (and did they finally stop last night)? @ronnie @blumenkraft @joanna

                            @blumenkraft Good morning! And the same to you! @ronnie @joanna @shawna

                              @shawna That’s a scary thought! If there’s going to not be a tomorrow the birds are likely the ones to know!! 😳 @ronnie @joanna

                                @joanna Ok. I thought I heard something, so I was just checking… @ronnie

                                  @matigo I’m going to give that another try. I was having issues with it some time ago and I didn’t get around to retrying it. Sorry. :) @remus

                                    @remus 👄👬🌹=☝🏽👤👎🏽= It only takes one person to say “No”. (See how well that works?) @matigo

                                      @remus I think we should reintroduce a cipher shift (like ROT-13) based on the iOS emoji keyboard for extra security. That should secure our communications until we hit the singularity! @matigo
