Apple’s very own iRadio service, conceived along the lines of Pandora, might finally be ready for launch this year. The new service, which will complement iTunes, is still being fine-tuned. BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield reports that Apple is currently negotiating with music companies to create the song catalogs. Apple had earlier tried to enlist the biggies in the business, such as Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group, and Universal Music Group, though nothing had come out of it then. Seems that all got resolved, and we might be witnessing the launch of the online radio streaming service soon. It is clearly a hugely successful business model, as is evident from streaming companies, such as Spotify, Rdio, and Pandora. Seems they have something to worry about now that Apple is staking a claim in this segment.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
