Warner Music Group CEO, Edgar Bronfman Jr, is full of praise for Apple – sparking fresh speculation
iTunes streaming music services may be on the way. His comments come as Spotify is expected bring its streaming music services to the US this year, perhaps this summer.
Spotify lets users listen to music online for free, and offers them the chance to buy music from a library songs (8 million for Spotify, 11 million for iTunes), make playlists, store music on their computers, and sync that music with their iPods, smart phones or other MP3 players.
Rumors Apple intends launching its own version of Spotify via iTunes using technology acquired with the purchase of LaLa.com last December have persisted since before that purchase occured.
