Whoa, Apple put Radio on the Internet.

This will probably cause me to cancel my Rdio account. $14.99/mo for my whole family (wife, brother, mom, and dad) seals it up. Hopefully they stick with it (unlike Ping) and don't make it too complicated like iTunes.

@scrivs I will also be canceling my Rdio account. Their desktop app stopped working last week and the Android app has been unstable for months. Happy to see that I now have another option. My only concerns when switching from Rdio would be 1) offline storage on my phone, e.g., downloading songs that I haven't purchased (which will be interesting because if they allowed offline downloads that would mean no more buying songs); and 2) what the music label support will be.

A number of things are still unclear to me after this launch. - Do they have the support of all major music labels? I.e. will I have trouble finding artists/songs? - How does this play with existing iTunes? Doesn't this render "purchasing" albums/songs obsolete? - What about offline listening for music I have not "purchased"? Basically, is this actually a contender to Spotify or just another attempt to solve a small piece of the puzzle.

@taykcrane I think it's a rough and very early preview in the attempt of building a major ecosystem. Something like this: https://twitter.com/markfusco/st...

@taykcrane ehhh how can you import all the playlists and saved albums from Spotify/Rdio/Deezer etc.?

@bramk @taykcrane That's my main question. I have some well curated lists in Spotify.

Interesting and I'll def test this in for the free 3 months @ end of June, but I'm wondering if it'll be sticky enough for me to ditch Spotify. The value I can see immediately is the Connect feature with artists I truly want to engage with, but it has to be a seamless experience from listening to engaging and historically, iTunes hasn't been the best experience, but perhaps the mobile app can bring it all together. Time will tell...

@lewis502 I'm wondering the same thing in regards to the stickiness. I can't see myself paying for more than one music service and I currently pay for Spotify. I think the "Connect" feature sounds nice but in reality I wonder if that'll be a killer feature. As you've mentioned iTunes hasn't done great with engaging users with artists in the past.

@daveparkhere Agreed. The Connect feature to me is a 'Nice to Have' but by no means a deal-breaker. Actually, the more I think about it, unless it's something super compelling, I'm not sure I'd engage that much w/ that feature.
