Ran across this new statistic earlier today regarding downloading vs. streaming (read the full article here). I took this turn myself several months ago and have become an avid fan of Rdio (you can find me here if you’re curious as to what I’m listening to these days).
In the end, the music fans will dictate (given the tech options available to them) where they’ll get their music fix. As much as I’d love downloading to continue (as it’s a significant income stream for labels and artists), the tide is turning towards streaming without a doubt.
What’s your take?
