    But Grrrl also has a pathological aversion to large corporations – and Microsoft is a much larger corporation than Apple. I think it would be more like her to have a Zen.

    But Zune is a much more superior technology. Well, maybe I’m a bit biased. But I love my Zune, even though I insist on buying CDs and ripping them. It’s the concept that ownership isn’t real unless the object is real. A digital song is not real. In a sense, it hearkens back to when bards would sing a song for a small price.

    I knew where this was going, since I was listening to a streaming music service while reading it.

    Discorporation of music means the performance becomes more important. The files become advertisements for the performance.

    Ownership isn’t real; it’s a social construct. Even when it involves a physical object.
