Apple hires MS exec
Apple has Julia Miller, suggesting that the company may be planning to introduce a subscription-based iTunes music download service, according to an AppleInsider report. Miller, formerly the Director of Marketing at XBox Live, was responsible for worldwide marketing and sales for XBox Live, the world's first broadband-only online gaming service. The online gaming service based on a monthly subscription model. "She brings to Apple more than fifteen years of consumer sales and marketing background, including extensive experience with SegaNet, the first online console gaming service." Phone calls to Apple confirmed her employment, but in a brief phone conversation with MacNN, Miller declined to provide her title or job description at Apple as well as refused to confirm her former employment.
