On the day Luciano Pavarotti died in Modena, Steve Jobs launched his "iPod touch" in California. When a singer dies, a light goes out in heaven, but Apple has ways of keeping its reflection burning. Pavarotti's fans may no longer swim, with Shelley, "upon the liquid waves of thy sweet singing", but they can sit in Starbucks and download him from iTunes. And his record company can still make money.
De la columna de Simon Jenkins, Electronic downloads make us want our Pavarottis in person even more (The Guardian).
