Apple Inc. has been the “cool kid” of the technological world for years now, constantly coming out with merchandise that receives a cult-like following. The fact as to whether or not they are truly superior to other products on the market is seemingly insignificant.

In order to compete with Pandora, Apple is looking to get licensing pacts with labels that allow more flexibility within what listeners hear, whereas current internet radio leader, Pandora, relies on a compulsory license that limits how often users can skip tracks and how many times an hour an artist can be played.
