iTunes coming to the cloud?
Ever since Apple bought music service Lala.com at the end of last year, there's hardly been a week go by where somebody hasn't speculated what it might mean for iTunes. The NME is the latest to throw its tuppence in - they've suggested Apple will announce an iTunes streaming service at its WWDC on June 7.
Apple is closing down Lala on May 31 and with the WWDC just a week later, we have to admit, the timing seems pretty good. However, we did tell you a couple of weeks back how Peter Kafka from All things digital had suggested that although Apple was talking to the music biz, there were many issues that still needed to be ironed out.
Maybe they have now been resolved though, and we're set for an iTunes streaming service to rival Spotify. Could we be seeing new apps for iPhones, iPad and iPod touches that allow for music streaming? Or even new devices? We'll just have to wait and see. Roll on June 7.
