Apple May be Ready to Compete with Pandora

apple streaming musicAccording to reports from the New York Times, Apple is getting ready to dive into the internet radio pool. Having supposedly already sealed a deal with Warner Music, Apple is in rights negotiations with other music providers to launch a music streaming service with content variety that could rival its own iTunes library.

Rumors say Apple wants to release the service (which, like market leader Pandora, would be free) as a mobile app in its upcoming iOS7 operating system. The service would support itself from in-app ads, which seems to be standard practice for “internet radio” services.

If you use Pandora, would you jump ship for an Apple-branded service?
