“Trouble in Paradise” by Duncan Morris

Taylor Swift took on the mega giant “Apple” and won. Earlier this month, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the impending launch of the company’s music streaming service, Apple Music and was offering their service free of charge for the first 60 days. What Cook didn’t publicize, and what Swift pointedly acknowledged this past weekend, was that Apple wasn’t planning to pay artists for music streamed during the free trial. She threatened to withdraw her music and Apple buckled. This is a win for all small artists as well as chart toppers.

I'd like to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.
