Taking lessons from recently acquired LaLa, Apple is said to be making moves to make iTunes more web-friendly, potentially allowing users to access their music via "the cloud" online, rather than having it tied to specific devices. According to a piece in the Wall Street Journal, the success of LaLa, which Apple acquired for $85 million, has shown them that broader access to one's music library is a growing priority.
LaLa's service allows users to listen to over 8 million songs for free once they've signed up and gotten an account. Users can buy music as well, with their first 25 songs being free, and then have access to their library from anywhere via the internet.
We hope this all works out... we still can't get that stupid Home Sharing thing to work right.
