Internet and iPhones
Did you ever see that video with the band playing all sorts of instruments... well, on their iPhones? Yes! Technology! So, if one can play Christmas carols (and not only Christmas Carols) simply by using an app on one's iPhone, we must say that internet and technology have come a good way.
Ever improving in what devices are concerned, and especially because of the wide variety of information offered to you by the use of one single "instrument", iPhones in particular and Google Phones as well have caused a major gap in music industry- financially speaking. Seeing its vigorous ascent, one cannot help but wonder: what next? How will internet and its technologies affect music industry further more?
One thing is for certain: adaptation is just critical. So, instead of creating music that only gets broadcasted via television, radio, now you must adjust your "product" so to speak to a consumer public that uses technology to get access to all the information and entertainment products ever wanted. Accessibility, portability are extremely important aspects. Instead of music streamed to the desktop computer at home, people would rather prefer music they can take everywhere, in the most easily and convenient way. On this topic we cannot really foresee the ways in which accessibility may change in future. Regulations regarding streaming may change to such a drastic degree that free streaming may not be what it was any more. Also, we must note that the controversial topic of author rights may and has begun to alter internet industry all over the world in a dramatic manner.
However things may be in future, one thing is certain: internet is a very profitable business, giving a wide variety of possibilities in which information, data is concerned. With the right device, one can access and enjoy one's favorite artist-since we are talking about music industry- his/her songs, videos, even infos on their personal lives. And, as long as you use the suitable sites, you can also get access to various programs or applications that can either help you with accessibility issue or, if you are more or less passionate and even talented in music, can help you create your own original song or tune. This is when the most popular sites come in. There are various applications available for IPhones- among which the ones mentioned at the beginning of our article, the instrument-playing app.
The most popular and the most profitable websites are also the ones that offer a great deal of applications. For instance, ITunes alone offers over 100.000 apps, among which we find music programs.
As a consumer, though, the question of accessibility usually comes hand in hand with the question of costs. Not all apps are free of charge, and particularly for IPhones, consumers must be cost-conscious, because apps available for these advanced technological "instruments" usually come with a tag price more or less accessible to the public. The android sector seems to be more accessible from this perspective. Comparing the two sections is not our topic here, but one thing is certain: having an internet accessing device in any of the forms presented on the market (preferably a smart-phone, though) has become quite a must nowadays. Listening to music on gramophones, tape recorders or even CD's is just obsolete and merely prove us ignorant to all possibilities and wonders of the enchanting, magical world of the internet era.
