The geeks really are no friend to the arts.

Their motivation to be involved with content is to sell devices and burnish their geeky credentials with something warmer and more human, as they tend to be on the cooler side.

You see Apple commercials with inspiring poems, and Android commercials with people listening to music and dancing around, but they pay musicians in fractions of pennies while they make 30-40% on the hardware.

Let’s not even get into Dr. Evil at Amazon.  God, what a fucker.
