Apple Targeting Pandora, Slacker with Radio Service

Article Comments  9

Apple is preparing a personalized, online radio service similar to those offered by Pandora, Slacker, and others, reports the Wall Street Journal. Citing people familiar with Apple's plans, the Journal indicated that Apple's streaming music service would work on its iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers, but not smartphones and tablets that run Google's Android platform. Apple is negotiating new licensing deals with the recording labels, reports the Journal, and is looking for better interactivity options with its service than what's currently available from Pandora and similar competitors. However, it will likely be months before any such service might debut. Apple declined to comment on the Journal's story.

This story brigns a strange immage to mind

I'm not sure why and do not have the photo shop skills to display the thoughts in my brian, but after reading this I'm picturing an apple shapped death star rising above the horizon.
Well, I know it will draw in the usual 'anything with an Apple logo is better just because it has an Apple logo' crowd, but I don't see why anyone else would have any interest in a music streaming service that only works on Apple hardware.

Rotten Apple

Apples used to be something positive and tasty. Now, Apple is ruining that, by trying to get their core into everything! Now, they're just trying to cross contaminate everything.
