If you've been waiting for something "groundbreaking" in the music industry, something "innovative" in the streaming business and something "revolutionary" in entertainment, you'll be really, really excited to know that Apple is launching their music service on Tuesday. That's right. Music. Downloaded. Streamed. For a fee - and you don't actually own it. That's incredible, and I don't think their is a single company that has ever thought of streaming, subscription music services before. Oh wait, there are dozens.
In 1993 I was a Computer Science student at Indiana University when Dr Fenske gave me an opportunity to put my studies together with my love, music. He set me off writing an app on NeXTSTEP to stream music (wav) from one part of the campus to another (thanks Rob Francis). I’ve been streaming music ever since.
