As an avid Rdio user, the prospect of having an algorithm direct what music plays next isn’t something that interests me at all.
Justin Williams does a much better job than I explaining why iRadio already seems like a miss, before it’s even launched.
I forgot to mention this in my post this morning, but Apple nearly killed radio with the iPod revolution. It feels weird to see them want to revive an old way of listening to music rather than just giving us a true iTunes in the cloud.
Google got it right with Google Play All Access: my local music + a streaming library for a flat monthly fee.
