The real test of any music store is its ability to move the chart toppers. While it’s great to sell and offer a deep catalog, the cost to run something like the apple store or Amazon/CDnow would be a losing proposition without major hits.
Checking the Apple store for today’s releases is unfortunatley disappointing in that regard… No Radiohead… No Ruben Studdard… and No Clay Aiken.
There are a few new releases listed for today (Tuesday is when new music is released publically by the way) but nothing from the big three for this week.
UPDATE – I stand corrected… There are now singles available by each of the finalists from American Idol, though no mention on their albums.
