Peter Kafka reporting on All Things Digital:
I’ve been on the phone all day with music industry sources. None of them know of any specific plans Apple has to replace Lala at the end of May, when it will shutter the streaming music company it bought last December.
I never really expected Apple to launch a streaming music service immediately following the demise of Lala. But, I still expect them to do so at some point. This is the type of service that Apple may decide to start building before they discuss deals with record labels. Especially now that they are in super lock-down following the iPhone prototype leak.
