From Issue:

Apple has opened a beta version of iTunes Match — the music component of its coming iCloud service — to developers. In what comes as a significant surprise to the industry, the $25/year service includesstreaminga feature not discussed when Apple announced iTunes Match in June (RAIN coverage here).

The Washington Post reports that iTunes Match users will be able tostream their cloud-based music to iPhones and other Apple devices (via Wi-Fi and, presumably, 3G). In June, Apple only discussed the ability todownload (not stream) cloud-based music.

The Post writes, “With the triple threat of the iTunes store, streaming music and the convenience of automatically uploading customer libraries, iTunes in the Cloud has becomea more formidable foe.

“It now matches the convenience of a service like Spotify or Rdio, for a little over $2 per month.”

Eliot Van Buskirk of Evolver.fm muses: “The next question: Will Apple allow third-party developers to build apps that stream music from these iCloud lockers? If Apple follows its own precedent with the iPod music app for iOS, they will — and that would be pretty cool indeed” (more here).

iTunes Match, as its name implies, “matches” your local music in your iTunes library with online copies (so no uploading is necessary). The Washington Post has more coverage here.

Developers Struggle

This is really a very nice achievements by the developers. Actually development or design is not an easy job. The designers or developers should know all the market trends especially SEO/Marketing industry so that they can design competitive product. But custom design or development increase the cost of the project that's why most of us used open source CMS. To begin with we shall understand, what CMS exist today. They can be divided into three categories: commercial, free and highly specialized. Accordingly, commercial systems are created for the purpose of sale of the license to them, i.e, you can buy the CMS and make your own with the help of her website. At the same time you are provided with technical support in case of questions or problems. The most famous among commercial CMS for website development Wordpress. Anyways, thanks for compiling and sharing the nice piece of news with us.
