Apple in Talks to Acquire Tidal Music Service ➝

I can’t imagine this being about anything other than Tidal’s exclusives. I don’t know much about the service — I’ve never used it myself — but I haven’t come across too many glowing reviews of it.

Apple Did Not Stop Tidal From Streaming Drake’s Set At Katrina Benefit ➝

Tidal isn’t going anywhere if they think stunts like this are a good idea.

Tidal Now Has a Family Plan ➝

I haven’t paid much attention to Tidal. It was pretty clear to me that it was doomed from the start — launching a streaming music service in the lead-up to Apple releasing a competing product is typically a recipe for failure. And, this new family plan continues their tradition of bungled launches.

Why would anyone pay $4.99 a month for every person they add to their existing ($9.99 a month) plan when Apple is only charging $14.99 for up to six users?  It’s asinine. Apple demolished the competition when they announced family plan pricing and no one has been able to compete with them on that front.
