Apple Reportedly Planning Streaming Music Service

Nerval's Lobster writes "Apple plans on taking a big bite of the streaming-music market, according to unnamed sources speaking to The New York Times.

Those sources suggested that an Apple streaming-music service would “probably” center on an app of some kind, and link to iTunes in order to better evaluate the listener’s musical interests. In broad strokes, that would make it similar to Spotify, a streaming-music service that also requires an app. Other popular cloud-music hubs, including Pandora and Last.fm, operate primarily as browser-based services.

The Wall Street Journal, citing its own unnamed sources, indicated that any Apple streaming service would work on iOS devices such as the iPad, Macs, and “possibly on PCs running Microsoft Corp.’s Windows operating system.” In keeping with Apple’s intense rivalry with Google, one source added, the service would not appear on Android devices."
