That's that's true okay that absurd and playing a bigger a bigger role in music -- so.
There's been an instinct thing happening with -- -- I -- you know there's an app for everything as the saying goes.
But one thing that you know this is a complicated issue of the -- -- one thing that we've really seen improvement -- seen.
Compared to MP3 players which we remember from past ten years.
Is that -- that they don't need any security it's you you are you you've signed in with your phone -- -- connected via Internet.
And so this is really opened up the possibilities -- a massive way without the technological and legal constraints that you simply the space -- I used pandora I guess what you a lot of people do but what else is out that the only pandora.
There's a fascinating one right now called turntable that FM it a lot of people in the music community -- talking about but it I think its -- thing for anyone.
With a curiosity music which is most of us -- thing.
So it's a it's a group listening room and one person or one of any four or five people plays music for the other people.
In the room and everybody is represented as a cute little avatar and you can run around and say you you like this song you don't like the song if enough people don't like the song it skips.
If people do like it that DJ gets points and you know the details are as important as what's really happening here which is people listening together to music which.
You know the walkman and the iPod and headphones we've all kind of been going into our little cocoons.

Without incurring a much higher rate.
But you noted that the the argument for years was like well our laws were made for sheet music and mechanical piano's and that's that's the case to an extent.
But things have opened up to the point where you can offer something -- thing like that.
Making completely legal and you know they just -- down forty million an investment we'll see how they.
Perform now that now that that's happening then there copyright laws keeping up to date with the way the whole music sharing system is changing they can't.
It's just not possible.
They've gotten better and consumer behaviors shifted people aren't aren't using BitTorrent and Napster -- Lime Wire is much -- some of those don't exist anymore.
Meant something like YouTube which has a -- to give you almost any song in the world for free.
Perfectly legally I think a lot of people are choosing that route instead of bothering the downloading and I think some kids even consider to be a waste of disk space that download free music because it's sitting right there on the Internet you know it's -- -- -- I -- these music apps.
But you are a little Leo a little bit and as a comedian -- analysis of -- -- as with the artists that I do have the concern that.
You know people have this feeling now -- should just get everything for free.
And mean He really need to respect the rights and the royalties in the financial security of the artists and find a way to.
Sure this all happened I -- I think the company's delivering a service need to worry about that you know music fans want music and you know.
There are -- I'm just amazed by the proliferation of free ways that are legal now I mean YouTube it you know you think of it.
As a music video site but you close your eyes and it's got every song in the world -- -- -- videos aren't there and that's but you know free music service but a lot of this new functionality bringing.

If it's shown on on on -- TV station and you have the dvds sitting right there it's more fun to watch the movie for some psychological reason.
You feel like other people are sharing -- with you and that's what we're seeing today that He -- big gadget person you he's -- -- anything much beyond -- -- I love pandora and it's not like I don't know look at all of -- -- -- -- that's that's really clever because you know you can't get everything for -- on -- Internet just -- borders -- coming out of business you can read everything on the Internet.
Internet listen everything on the Internet using social media angles really -- ideas about what network so.
