      Oh yeah, iTunes is a fail, App store is a fail, nobody is copying… don’t sell music, movie, nothing. what a joke.
      Give your ass to google and facebook… I’d rather pay for a not too good service (still in progress) than pay for a evil-spy companies. good luck with your spyware/virus/invasion of privacy/ads/no guarantee… iTunes Match way better than Google whatever… Facebook web app? joke. Android? what version? what model? oh what a mess. Provocateur my ass.
