I just posted this on my blog, but I thought it deserves a wider audience.
This could be HUGE for us advocates of Mp3/downloadable music:
Apple Computer Inc. is in ongoing talks with Vivendi Universal to buy the Universal Music Group from the French media and entertainment company, a source close to the situation said on Friday.
Apple, the maker of such wonderful devices as the iPod and integrated computer/music stuff owning the largest music company COULD just force the industry into the new millenium.
Besides, Apple is MUCH more customer-focused. With the largest company going in a more customer/technology focused, could the others be far behind??
