Subpar, limited use audio format, from a company that takes a bigger chunk from the artist than nearly any other digital distribution plan?

Where do I sign up?

And the artists each got 36 cents.

Itunes represents a dead paradigm.  Great moneymaker for Apple while it lasted, but no one will be using this in 5 years.
