    Something that will compete with Spotify, Rdio, Beats Music?.. they're different than iTunes Radio in that you can save music to your online library (and not iTunes Match... I don't want to download/buy the song and then have iTunes Match make it available "online"), make playlists, etc.. I'd deff use that if it was integrated into iOS but right now only 3rd party apps are available :(

    Apple has a streaming music service, and so I don't think they'll have a second one.

    Maybe they'll change the current service but not in a way that would affect the sales of music.

    It took them 3 years to port iBooks to the Mac. You might see iTunes access to non-Apple streaming services in a decade or two.
