Apple will unveil iRadio streaming service next week According to Bloomberg, Apple will unveil its long-awaited iRadio unlimited music streaming service.
The company has reportedly secured key licensing agreements ahead of their announcement, including Warner Music, who had allegedly been holding out for better rates.

As part of that deal, Apple will pay Warner 10 percent of ad revenue from the service, a figure that is double what Pandora pays for use of the catalog.

The move follows Google's recent entry to the market, "All Access," which offers a similar service to Spotify, Rdio and other existing companies.

It will be interesting if the service could bring something innovative to the table, or act like Google's and simply copy existing services just within their own environments.

Do you seriously look on this site for Apple articles just so you can call Apple fans iSheep? I don't understand why it offends you that other people choose a certain device over another. How is that affecting you? It has to for you to resort to name calling.

Not that you're the only one that does it but I just find it intriguing that this is what the world has come to. Apparently we didnt have enough things to classify us all as humans so we had to find other ones; Nationality, orientation, ethnicity, religion and now mobile device choice. All I have to say is wow.

You don't have to take it personally.

I like that episode in Futurama where the public is waiting for the latest killer iApp and it turns out to be software that brainwashes them into buying the next model eyePhone.

It doesn't offend me if people want to buy an Apple product/service :) They're fine... just hugely overpriced. I suppose the whole "lifestyle" thing is OTT.

I didn't get offended I just noticed that in almost every Apple article it looks like you just comment on them simply so you could include iSheep somehow in there. You have all the right to hate a company and by all means do so. I'm not saying I'm an Apple fan in any way I just don't think the name calling is necessary.

But then again this is the internet, I don't think this will change anytime soon! ;)
