Five things that killed
Apple Match iTunes Internet radio
Five reasons why it will not catch on with consumers, even with the Apple name.
1 - Being touted as free, but with a $24.99 fee, or more than $2 per month. It enters a realm where i-Heart Radio, Radio AOL, Spotify, Pandora, Last.FM, even Radio Disney, offer truly free service.
2 - Late to the game. Nearly a whole decade after Internet radio came of age.
3 - Only works on mobile devices running IOS 7.
4 - Offers nothing unique. Once upon a time, you could share concert files, like Grateful Dead fans have since the '70s, on something called Win-MX. Apple doesn't offer anything unique with Match.
5 - No social capability. No sharing, as with Win-MX above, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
