Over the past few months, I’ve been a fan of music-streaming web service lala.com. It was a very simple and easy way to explore new music via the mythical internet Tron cloud. Lala introduced me to some new artists I would never have explored otherwise (thank you, lala for introducing me to P.O.S., Lupe Fiasco, and for finally dragging me—admittedly very belated—to the Queens of the Stone Age party).

But apparently, Apple, which purchased lala back in December feels differently and has decided to kill the service. Hopefully this means that apple will introduce its own cloud-streaming music service for iTunes, but the word is: don’t hold your breath.

Spotify or TunesBag, anybody?
