Bernstein With a Twist
This is a weekly program with commentary on current issues.
I wish I had a thing for Lady GaGa.
Never mind I'd never heard of her until a few days ago.
All I know is if I had a thing for Lady GaGa, I'd get on the iTunes site and buy "Poker Face" for a buck twenty-nine.
Just like that, I'd be cool. I'd be hip. I'd be bad. Because I would have paid Apple's top-tier price for a hot-selling song. What could possibly be more validating than to pay the world's top music store top dollar for a chart-topping tune?
But I don't have a thing for Lady GaGa, Coldplay, Fall Out Boy or, believe it or not, Audioslave. I don't qualify for iTunes' top-tier rates.
Some of you may be smirking: "This guy has an iPod?" As if there should be a background check to prevent anyone in the low-tier crowd from owning such a device.
Yes, I have one. I'm an iTunes customer. I'm just no longer a valued customer.
