Ready for Apple's iRadio? Don't Hold Your Breath
On Wednesday, Google introduced its long-anticipated Spotify competitor called All Access.
Described as a “unique Google approach” to subscription music, Google made the announcement during the keynote for the Internet search giant’s annual Google I/O developer conference.
Similar to popular music services Spotify and Pandora, Google's All Access has one major advantage in today's burgeoning streaming music market: it beat Apple to the punch.
For months we've been hearing chatter about Apple's forthcoming iRadio music service, which - when it finally does debut - will now have to compete with Spotify, Pandora, and All Access, not to mention a full slate of young, up and coming competitors in the space.
Making matters worse for Apple is the fact that the Cupertino, California-based tech giant is still nowhere close to being ready to launch iRadio. For now, The Verge reported Friday, Apple's efforts to secure adequate licensing rights are ongoing. In particular, Apple's negotiations with Sony are still underway and further delays for iRadio's launch are practically unavoidable.

Why can't they just put an FM radio right into the phone? My old mp3 player used to have one for crying out loud. I don't like these internet radio apps cause they suck your data and bandwidth. I just download everything, solves that problem real quick

It will probably be like a smart TV but locked up so tight you can't do anything with it like the Apple TV.

I still believe Apple will come out with a better service. Google once again, probably threw their crap together in order to beat Apple to a release.
