apple itunes music streaming service

Looks like Apple is going to be beating Google to the punch with the Reuters reporting that a music cloud service will be out from Apple “pretty soon”. More information came in from AllThingsD as well confirming the same information, along with the fact that Apple plans to have it fully licensed with the big four record labels. Two of which they apparently have signed agreements with already.

Peter Kafka, over at All Things Digital has sources telling him that Apple’s service will be slightly different from Amazon’s, and possibly Google’s, in that they will store one copy of the song on their servers for streaming playback.

The idea is that Apple will let users store songs they’ve purchased from its iTunes store, as well as others songs stored on their hard drives, and listen to them on multiple devices.

Better get that Music service going Google!
