It is being reported today that HP are in talks with major record labels regards their own Cloud based music service. Their own service is said to be directly for HP OS devices. Check out Steven Musil’s article on CNET which refers to a Billboard article sourcing the story.
So just to hot up the relationship with Apple, Amazon has now launched a download app store for Macs competing directly with the official Mac App Store. The Mac Download Store is not quite as nifty as the integrated OSX Mac App Store but still with some desirables not available on the official download spot such as Microsoft Office and Toast 10.
From a consumer point of view, lets just say that healthy competition will hopefully be good for all of us buying Mac Apps! Apple may feel differently.
