Apple Purchases Lala Music Streaming Service
Turns out that Apple wants more than the revenue it gets via iTunes, so it decided to cash in on some streaming, by buying Lala. The latter is a music streaming service, allowing users to stream songs one time for free, with a fee of 10 cents per track afterwards.
Lala’s offer meant that the user can buy a bunch of tracks and access/stream them from wherever they find a Flash supporting browser, but will the service stay the same under Apple’s wing?
Will they integrate Lala into iTunes or will the Cupertino brains make it a service that works on the iPhone and iPod Touch for perfect streaming? We’ll have to wait and see…
