Apple Vs Spotify, featuring Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails. Tinder gets hacked. Razer teams up with Leap Motion. Your BitStream news-eagle has landed.
Apple has another big fight on its hands: this time its music streaming. Cupertino's rumoured one-up on the competition was that its Beats-powered streaming service could be $2 (£1.34) cheaper than Spotify, but according to The New York Times, the record labels just are not going for it. So where do you go from there? Start leveraging some star power. First up is Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails who is reportedly working with Apple on redesigning the streaming app, but it won't stop there. Apple may also try to beat the competition with exclusive or early releases. Good luck with that. [NYT]
