Steve Jobs' one more thing: iTunes Match

Summary: At the WWDC conference in San Francisco, Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveils iTunes Match, part of the company's new iCloud service. For a $24.99 annual fee, users can use iTunes Match to scan their music library for non-iTunes purchased songs. Apple then provides a DRM-free file of those songs for access from iCloud.

  • Why pay to have your music that you already "bought" uploaded into iCloud

    Essentially, a person would be paying to have Apple upload their music into the cloud. That does not seem to be worth $25 to me. Maybe if a person stole their music or lost a lot or all of their CDs that might make sense but not just to be able to have in a cloud what you have on your device.
    • RE: Steve Jobs' one more thing: iTunes Match

      @Newsom02 Since it wouldn't be uploading to iCloud how would they be paying Apple to do it? iCloud is a snycing service and this allows you to get all your collect to iCloud ready to sync to all your iOS devices. You don't like it or Apple, that's fine but try getting the facts first.
  • I just don't get it !

    It's just another little app that apple has come up with to take another $30 out of your pocket. It has taken them a long time to get with the program when it comes to our "MUSIC". They have always hated the fact that some of us bought our music from someone else and then down loaded it to the iTunes player.
