Apple is getting into the streaming music business. Bloomberg News reports that the company is in talks with record labels and music publishers with hopes to launch a Pandora-esque internet radio service next year.

Meanwhile, Apple just launched the iPad mini which is a little bit cheaper than the regular iPad and fits in your hand. Perfect for those Goldilocks types who thought the iPad was too big but the iPod Touch was too small.

Can't they just get their general iTunes streaming radio on the iPad?

All of this is designed to circumvent the idea that a consumer could actually own a unit of music. And I don't like it.

I like paying my money and getting something I can listen to when the net goes down, or my ISP bill isn't paid, or when I damn well feel like it.

Say no to this. Say no to "convenience".

And for the moment when radio is still not available - you can use ArkMC https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/arkmc/id405487397 application on your iPhone or iPad and foobar2000 www.foobar2000.org application on you desktop or laptop. With the help of these applicaitons you can stream all the media you have there.

iPod mini that fits into tiny purse is very easy to carry. Thanks to Apple.
