Apple is signing deals with several record labels

For a long time now, Apple has been rumored to offer some kind of online music streaming service, that might be like the Amazon Cloud Player or the recently released Google Music. It has even purchased the domain

Now, it's on its way signing some kind of deals with major record labels.
Apple shook hands very recently with Sony. Just a few days ago, they did so with EMI and Warner Music.

Rumors say that Apple will come up with its own streaming service that is integrated with iTunes. Granted that iTunes is one of the top music stores online, this could really take off. You stream all your media from Apple's servers to any of your (i)devices without downloading them. Your play counts will surely come with you.

But whatever the service will do, is it too late? Will Google Music or Amazon's Cloud Player dominate? I guess we need to wait... and follow Right Now In Tech.
