Apple Radio??

According to a recent report by the New York Times, Apple is apparently on the verge of diving into music streaming - popularized previously by services like Pandora and Spotify.

Though Apple denied reports (not much of a surprise given that Apple is notoriously tight-lipped in regards to their future plans), they have already signed deals with Warner Music Group, Universal Music, and are talking to Sony Music about a deal.  Deals with these music-giants are seen as the first steps in creating the streaming service, which ABC coined 'iRadio'.

The service is rumored to be free, and to be reliant on advertising and links to Apple's Itunes store for generating money, striking a direct contrast with Google's new 'All Access Music Service', which costs $9.99 a month.

I use Pandora often through my iPhone and iPad, but I might make the switch if this ends up happening - it would be great to be able to buy new songs I like straight from my streaming service, which is exactly what this 'iRadio' would offer.

What do you guys think?
