"Apple Inc., the biggest Internet-music seller in the United States, acquired Lala, adding a Web-music service to its iTunes song-downloading business."
Apple didn't disclose details, but did confirm they purchased LaLa, which is a web-based service that lets you listen to music (either album or son) once for free, then requires you to purchase it if you want to hear it again. If you just want to listen online, the cost is $0.10 USD, but if you want the MP3 it is $0.79 USD.
No word on Apple on what they intend to do either, in typical fashion spokesman Steve Dowling said "Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time and we generally do not comment on our purpose or plans." What are your thoughts? Covering bases? Good move, bad move?
