Apple’s Lala music team working on video streaming service for 2010 launch?
When Apple acquired Lala , the obvious use for all that local scanning and internet streaming technology would have been to serve up our hard-drive-based iTunes music libraries from the cloud. Here we are though, eight months later, and the only significant impact from the acquisition was the closure of the Lala music service . And it doesn’t look like that will change anytime soon. According to an investigative piece by CNET , Apple is telling the big-four music execs that it won’t be offering any significant cloud-based music offerings within the next few months. In fact, CNET ‘s sources claim that Apple still hasn’t obtained the licenses required to store and distribute music via a cloud-based service.
