This week on the AppleInsider Podcast, William is off, and Jimmy Destri of the band Blondie joins Victor to talk about iTunes, Facebook's responsibility, Apple News, Apple Car, and Steve Jobs stories.
AppleInsider editor Victor Marks and musician/songwriter/producer Jimmy Destri discuss:
- Jimmy's background and how Blondie was unsuccessful at first
- How anyone with a laptop can make music
- iTunes royalties, and how it's been good for artists
- Spotify needs to work with Apple instead of fighting them
- Apple, privacy, and Facebook's responsibility to their users (and Apple News)
- Who would Apple's competitors be in the future?
- and some Steve Jobs musings, based on things his friend Jimmy Iovine told him.
Victor goes to Moogfest and takes over the WUNC radio studios to interview Jimmy Destri about the music business, and the intersection of digital interfaces with art, and we unexpectedly end up talking about Steve Jobs.
