New Article: Apple To Create A Rival To Pandora

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Apple has dominated the headlines lately with their court victory over Samsung and news of the impending iPhone 5, but this latest piece of news comes as a bit of a surprise – the world’s largest tech company has announced it is in talks to create a custom-radio service in the same vein as Pandora. The new service would be available across Apple’s entire line of products and could possibly see a Windows release as well. Currently, the custom-radio market is dominated by Pandora but with Apple’s already established online music presence and its massive base of hardware, the company could dominate the market as it has done with many of its other endeavors. Apple is reportedly seeking licenses that would let it sidestep many of the restrictions that other companies like Pandora face, such as playing the same song multiple times.
