In this decade of uncertainty and instability for the music industry, Apple has remained one of few companies that has managed to it. Apple has conquered nearly every musical endeavor that it attempted (the only exceptions being its social networking efforts with Ping and its decision to shutter Lala upon acquisition).

Over the past decade-plus, Apple has succeeded in redefining and reinventing certain aspects of the music industry. In particular, Steve Jobs helped create music products and services that impacted four particular areas.

1. Musical Consumption Patterns
2. Accessibility of Recording and Production Tools
3. Online Retail and Distribution Models
4. Live Electronic Performance Becomes Reliable
