apple music store

Apple Computers released a new service this week, iTunes Music Store. They offer a wide variety of music for download (.99 cents per song). I was quite surprised and happy to see a good portion of the Duran Duran catalogue available for download (including Arcadia too!). My question is, how do you guys feel about this new service? Do you think this new service will have a positive effect on the music industry? I remember when you guys released Electric Barbarella for download. Would you consider offering musical exclusives by download only again? Thanks, Stephanie
