Content Beats platform

The Beats purchase confirms that Apple is no longer king of digital music.

Ironically, it’s Apple that helped dethrone itself – the iPhone’s multi-touch screen and app architecture broke the iPod’s monopoly on great user experience in digital music devices. Now anyone can make a great music player, in code, sitting on Apple’s hardware and OS. 

For once it looks like the content beat the platform.
