Apple original content tipped to be in trouble already

While its devices are still making it millions, Apple is seen to be shifting to a more services-oriented business model. Like what Amazon does with its Kindle and Fire devices, iPhones, iPads, and Macs are increasingly becoming gateways into Apple’s software and, more importantly, subscription-based services.

But if this latest report hits the issue on the head, Apple’s original programming might be DOA.

Apple removes purchased movies from users’ iTunes library

Apple removes purchased movies from users’ iTunes library

Purchasing digital copies of usually physical goods is so easy and convenient these days, most of us don’t give a second thought about it. We don’t have to carry books around, deal with fragile DVDs, or fumble around for cartridges whenever we want to switch games. But depending on where you bought said digital content, buying might not exactly mean what you think it means. That was the bitter truth that a Canadian iTunes user learned when Apple quietly removed content he already bought because the items were no longer being sold on its digital content store.
