Apple inks EMI Music deal ahead of cloud-music launch

Apple has reportedly signed a cloud-music licensing deal with EMI Music, and is "very near" to similar deals with Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment, according to the latest tattle from the record industry.

SG Comics Presents: Apple Eats Android Ice Cream Sandwich

Last week's Google I/O kicked off the first keynote with an image on the big screen of an adorable Android robot ready to swallow an apple, bringing laughter to the crowd of 5000 attendees.

Amazon Cloud Player prompts streaming spat as labels explore “legal options”

Amazon Cloud Player prompts streaming spat as labels explore “legal options”

Amazon's Cloud Drive and streaming Cloud Player services dropped earlier than expected; the rumors had only really begun to coalesce a few days before, claiming the online retailer was struggling with the same content owner licensing issues that were plaguing Google and Apple. Instead, it seems, Amazon pushed ahead with the launch and simply expected the labels to fall into line. That, unsurprisingly, isn't going down well, and despite Amazon's protestations, it looks like the labels are readying themselves for a legal fight.
