Apple to shutter Lala next month

Lala meets its demise next month

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Apr 30, 2010 4:06 pm

Anyone with half a brain knew when Apple purchased online music service Lala that its days were numbered. Apple was either looking to axe some competition or was out to integrate Lala into its own online subscription music offering (or both).

I know I am hoping for the second option and according to TechCruch sources are telling it that is exactly what will happen and perhaps as early as June. Lala will be available for existing subscribers until May 31. No new subscribers are being accepted.

 

Apparently, anyone with money left in Lala will have the funds transferred over to iTunes. I know many folks who may be sad to lose Lala, but will be hopeful that Apple finally offers that subscription service.
