In the most recent sign that Apple is looking at alternative ways for people to store and play their digital music, the company has agreed to buy Lala, a four-year-old start-up based in Palo Alto, Calif., a person with knowledge of the deal said Friday.
Lala, unlike Apple’s iTunes, lets users play the music they own from the Web — or in tech industry parlance, from the cloud. If Apple introduces its own cloud-based streaming music service, it would let people skip having to download music they buy or synchronize their music collection between their computers and mobile devices.
Wake up a Saturday morning. Read that Apple buys Lala. While I'm sitting on the train I think... Why does Apple need so many SDD memories? We are all thinking of iTunes streaming for a fee. Lala has the technology and Apple agreements. I want to see how a move like this will affect Spotify. Competition is always good
