The late Apple founder and tech icon will receive the Trustees Award for having “helped create products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies, and books,” the Academy said in a release. More specifically, the award will recognize “Jobs’ innovations such as the iPod and its counterpart, the online iTunes store, [which] revolutionized the industry and how music was distributed and purchased.”
Certainly, iTunes has forever changed the music industry. CD sales have plummeted and full-length albums are becoming less important as the sale of low-priced singles has become more and more dominant. Studies have projected that digital sales will surpass CD sales by 2013, if not 2012.
