[ARSCLIST] It's a different music biz out there

A couple articles from the NY Times recently.

First of all, Apple apparently now has more leverage than Wal-Mart:
One thing not made clear -- aren't CD's still out-selling downloads on a dollar basis? So, wouldn't the largest retailer of CD's still have more leverage?

Secondly, a hit ain't what it used to be:
Thinking back, though, in the days when the really timeless hits were being produced -- the songs that are endlessly (and badly) copied by the last two generations of would-be crooners -- 2+ million units sold in 11 weeks would be a megahit.
