    My first reaction upon receiving that email was: Apple bought LaLa with the intention of shutting it down and forcing its users to use iTunes.

    I had the same thought Michele. I’m hoping against hope that Apple will be repackaging the LaLa utility as a new feature on iTunes – perhaps replacing the largely pointless iTunes radio. More likely though, is that LaLa is gone forever with Apple falling into the same paranoid trap as the record industry evildoers that nullified the Napster P2P model, completely missing the larger point that free access (even limited streaming access,) is the gateway to new paying customers.

    *tear* – I’ll miss you LaLa
