Idiot of the Week 

AC/DC is one of those few holdout superstar bands that refuses to sell its music via iTunes (a pet peeve of mine to be addressed later, I'm sure).

Guitarist Angus Young tells USA Today that one of the reasons for that is his concerns about iTunes' 'concentrated power':

"I get scared when one big monster rules music. Maybe I'm a bit daft and old-fashioned, but I see shades of George Orwell."
This from a guy who -- in the same breath -- is promoting AC/DC's exclusive deal with Wal-Mart to be the sole retailer for the band's new album.

Yeah. No concentrated power there.
