I thought this was really interesting so I am bringing it over from MJ's
Here are some stats of the top 20 music retailers:
1. iTunes 32.98% 2. Anderson/Walmart 10.66% 3. Best Buy 8.68% 4. Target 7.79% 5. Amazon 6.88% 6. Alliance Entertainment 5.66% 7. Trans World 3.47% 8. Verizon 1.78% 9. Rhapsody 1.61% 10. Super D 1.57%
11. Hastings Entertainment 1.05% 12. Borders 0.88% 13. The Edge 0.73% 14. Baker & Taylor 0.68% 15. Sprint Nextel 0.67% 16. Hot Topic 0.57% 17. Microsoft (Zune+Xbox+MSN) 0.55% 18. T-Moble 0.53% 19. eMusic 0.46% 20. AT&T 0.42%
These top 20 retailers accounted for 87.62% of the music industry’s $6.9 billion in revenue last year. Only 45.26% of sales were in brick-and-mortar stores. YouTube and Vevo each have 0.40% of the market.

Great numbers overall except for Aftermath remix :(
IKR? This isn't the place to bitch but I can't understand the low sales for that - especially given that the AO sales were for The Trevor Project. With 1M plus twitter followers and tons of fans..... and $1.29 per DL. Can't grasp it. :(
You do not have to shout but if you want to chat....
crazylady: Sorry you are having the same login problem, butterfly, but at least I am in good company! At least we can log in! I'd panic if I couldn't! LOL

ayleim: Just checking - so there were NO Adam-sightings in the performance show right? Then I don't have to worry about being near the TV later tonight, I can just listen from the kitchen. :D

Q3: The second log-in is part of the security system to protect the site from hackers. If you want to avoid it, select the option to keep me logged in.

minnie12: this is great, Sauli deserves the support. There's no negativity here and that's nice.

minnie12: Nice to see all the pics of Sauli and his friends. Has a lot of female friends. Goes out a lot with Ade?

blueberry: A tech question. When I post, I'm stuck in BB Code, can't get back to Preview. Any ideas? I have Preview as default in my profile, but that doesn't help.
May 18, 2013 23:56:59 GMT -5
Q3: blueberry. there should be a two labels on tabs at the bottom of the REPLY box -- one labeled Preview and one labeled BBCode. Can you see these or are they gone?
May 19, 2013 2:08:40 GMT -5
blueberry: Q3, I can still see the labels, but when I click on the Preview label, nothing happens. And every time I start a new post, it automatically takes me to BB Code. Otherwise it doesn't matter, but posting pictures would be easier in Preview (copy+paste).
