If iTunes Radio were the work of virtually any other company, analysts might well be pronouncing its last rites on arrival. Another streaming music service seems certain to confront a field crowded with competitors that have captured the affection of hundreds of millions of consumers, from Pandora and Spotify to Rdio to TuneIn.
But Apple is not any other company. Its iTunes store is already the largest music retailer in the world. Late to the market or not, analysts think that iTunes Radio, released Monday, could give a much needed boost to iTunes -- which has seen little growth in its customer base over the last three years -- enabling Apple to sell even more music.

About a year ago, I wrote a post titled “Here’s Why Google and Facebook Might Completely Disappear In The Next 5 Years.”
To be honest, I’m not sure I’d write it again today.
It had a catchy title and some good substance to my arguments, so it ended up generating a lot of page views. It also came out at a time when the hype over the upcoming Facebook FB +1.4% IPO was at a fever pitch. Back then, people were saying that Facebook would be the next Google GOOG +1.75% and would certainly surpass $100 billion in market value as soon as it IPO’ed. We don’t seem to recall now but many predicted that Facebook’s stock would go to $60 – 75/share immediately post-IPO. Continue To Forbes...
