It's not like he's got any good music beyond his one hit, 1999, anyways so who cares if he can sell his music on iTunes or any other outlet for that matter! And digital music both in cloud form and physical form on micro devices, (MicroSD, etc,) is the future, not his outdated CD's, get real Prince of nothingness, there's nothing to your B.S. either! Outside of my DVD/CD player in my computers, I don't even own one anymore and what CD's I still have are older than most of the teenagers, (and the crust in his underwear,) listening to anything he still has to say!

Wanna take a guess on which dies out faster...the internet or your career?
Oh wait...too late on that. My bad.

“The Internet’s like MTV,” Prince concludes. “At one time, MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good.”

I wonder if he knows the other classic quotes:
"Everything that can be invented has been invented." Charles H. Duell, Commissioner, U.S. patent office, 1899

"640K ought to be enough for anybody." Bill Gates, 1981.

to sportmac, your own link shows that gore was quoted saying "...I took the initiative in creating the Internet." Of course we all know now that is not what he meant but it still an unfortunate mishap on his part that still is funny, just as Dan Quayle's potatoe.

I live in the Twin Cities area, and even once interviewed for a principal who had Prince (or whatever name he's gone with lately) as a student.

Prince had a unique and significant sound in his time. Since all the "formerly known as" hoopla, he's been a distraction--not an artist.

If anyone has heard the song that he wrote for the Vikings last year, inspired by their play...you'll understand.

If his new album, 20TEN, has great hits like "Purple and Gold," we'll all be better off if it isn't in the iTunes store.

Of course, the issue is that Prince wants to be paid BEFORE distribution (old model) instead of after distribution (new model), because if his album stinks, nobody will buy it.

As another former Minnesotan once said, "Straight Cash, Homie." (Randy Moss).

And this business about the Internet being over...somebody better call both Al Gore (who invented the Internet, of course) and Steve Jobs...

And here we thought Flash was the issue...nope...the whole Internet is just a passing fad!
