It's no secret that Apple Inc. has changed the music industry with its ubiquitous iTunes music store and iPod portable digital music players. The company recently announced that it was going to allow people to match their digital music files with songs kept on the cloud. These songs would then be available for paying subscribers ($25 per year) to download again and again, whether or not they obtained the files legally. This is just part of Apple's upcoming iCloud service. I'll probably pay for it simply because it's a cheap way to back up my music files. But as far as music on the cloud goes, Rhapsody has been doing it for a decade, and I've been a fan from the beginning. In fact, I've been using Rhapsody music streams from the cloud for years right here on this blog. Although Rhapsody keeps subscriber numbers close to the vest I've heard we are around a million strong. Do you pay for any digital only music? If so, what's your favorite service?
This playlist includes the top 10 songs Rhapsody users are currently streaming.
