In the apple music video it shows a new icon with the title music.
(Or maybe it is not new and I'm really out of touch... I don't use IOS)

Itunes has become a huge brand name... if they just called it Music then it becomes meaningless as a brand and icon, especially for those who don't normally use apple products.
However having said that I guess they could keep the itunes store name but split the apps up.

Exactly. I kind of wonder if they're leading up to this now that their new music brand is just called "Apple Music" instead of "iTunes Streaming" or whatever. The iTunes name isn't a part of their new major music service, which is interesting to me. I would be very happy with a "Music" app featuring Apple Music on my Mac, and a separate Videos app, Podcast app, etc...for those who still manually sync, syncing could be done via a redesigned iSync, in a way similar to how the current version of iTunes handles syncing from outside apps like iBooks.I'd rather see iTunes become strictly the store.
Exactly. Or I guess thr iTunes app could still sell music for people who don't subscribe, and want to still buy music individually. Apple did say that the traditional iTunes Store is sticking around, after all.I'd expect that when Apple Music lands, the Music app will be used for purchasing music. There will still need to be a store for Movies, TV shows, etc, though. So I guess that the iTunes app on iOS will be used to buy anything but tunes, ironically.
You can count to three till the first people complain about the increase of apps and want it merged again. I pretty much like the idea of having all media types combined in one app and even being able to purchase it.Yup. iTunes seriously needs a major redesign. I'd love to see it broken up into separate apps like iOS.
Yes, and what this all in one approach helps with is binding it all into backup, restore, and syncing mechanismYou can count to three till the first people complain about the increase of apps and want it merged again.
