Hope it works better than the radio service in the Apple TV. A few months ago it was unusable for three weeks and all Apple would say is wait for the next update. For a trillion dollar company they sure act sometimes like they only have half a dozen programmers working. It's not at all unusual for them to say they can't fix something because everyone is working on the next ipad but they'll get back to the issue after the release. Why keep coming out with different products if they don't have the resources to maintain and improve what they already have?

Also what happened to favorites in the podcasts section of Apple TV? Did someone at Apple decide for all the users that being able to have all your favorites in one place instead of going through menu and menu was somehow a bad thing? Did someone add a 'naughty' podcast to their favorites and it freaked out the prudes at home base?

It all makes me wonder what music will actually be offered on Apple radio. I'm guessing something like the radio stations in Demolition Man.

Because if there's one thing Apple is excellent at, it's services!

It's so fun watching Apple play catchup.

History repeats itself. Jobs leaves, Apple crashes. He comes back, it thrives. He leaves, it crashes again.

The ironing is delicious.

The labels don't make it cheap for anyone, and Apple is going to be no exception.

Didn't Microsoft just do this with Xbox music in Windows 8?

ya know these whole platform specific services always seem doomed to obsolescence, stuff like the zune, xbox media, sony's own digital media, apple streaming, etc. because media/software that you only buy once is always superior to media/software that is locked

I'm more interested in Kim Dotcom's Megabox music service: so good that the US government kidnapped him to try to stop the service from launching.

Dude, you need a paperbag so you don't need a dedicated grilled cheese iron. And as far as Apple music streaming goes, no thanks. I'm pretty sure they would trot it out at 128 kbps AAC.

I'll take Slacker over Pandora or whatever Apple comes up with.

Caching? Works on all my platforms? integrates perfectly via the iPhone with the car stereo? Limit stations to one artist? Limit stations to one album? Unlimited skips? Comedy channel?

"Pandora on the Web plays 64k AAC+ for free listeners and 192k for Pandora One subscribers. All in-home devices play 128k audio, and mobile devices receive a variety of different rates depending on the capability of the device and the network they are on, but never more than 64k AAC+."

Isn't this going to run into a problem with Apple Records, started by the Beatles? I know there was a court case about this a few years back.

Seriously? I've never tried Pandora because I own a ridiculous amount of music (like needs it's own room ridiculous) but that's a joke.

Apple got tired of the lawsuits and bought out Apple Records entirely.

Streaming AAC actually sounds pretty good at those data rates. I also use the SomaFM streaming app and their AAC streams sound pretty good to me. Without getting into an audiophile debate I'm just pointing out that 128k AAC is not the same thing as 128k MP3.

I grew up in a town where there was this guy that drove a mid-70's station wagon decked out as a rolling shrine to Captain and Tennille. I can remember being young and seeing each side of those big long windows had pictures and album covers were taped up and covered the whole windows. The back window was just about covered with pictures of them together and there were lyrics written in marker all along different points along the body.

That's it. Not really a cool story but I'm willing to bet the guy is probably dead by now.
