Without knowing all the details, it stuns me that record labels in America continue to be very short sighted about the fact that the vast majority of consumers get their music digitally from the internet. Perhaps they are still smarting over the Napster debacle from the 90’s, but if an internet giant like Google came to me and said, “Hey, let’s launch a killer service that all of our users will have access to and will get you guys paid, but it will be in a different way than you are used to.”, I would sit up and listen and most likely act.

For those of you city dwellers who do not own a vehicle, but would like to have access to one from time to time, Zip Car offers you just that with the ability to rent a vehicle for an hour or a day. I first saw the Zip Car model when visiting home in Boston, and I thought it was a great idea, but it was lacking a mobile way to reserve a vehicle.
