Apple Reportedly Looking To Launch Pandora Streaming Music Rival
The company is said to be in "early" talks with record labels to try and figure out the subscription model, and you can bet that the service would rely heavily on mobile. Of course, it's a huge question mark as to whether something like this would even be allowed to work on Android and Windows Phone devices, though iOS integration would be seamless. Apple is hoping to best the existing services by seeking a "direct license" with the record labels, which could give it way more flexibility in song serving compared to the competition.
Unfortunately, the service is likely to be "months" away, so don't count on having a new way to stream when you open that stocking in December.
