    We normally try to avoid talking Apple here as Android users feel like they get bombarded enough from their Apple using coworkers. But this news is actually Android related.

    A year ago Apple purchased Beats and acquired Beats Music. They have since evolved that into a music app that looks to challenge all the other music services on the market. With Apple's robust collection of music paired with Beats branding as well as a large collection of artists they stand capable of providing a competitive service. At $9.99 per month ($14.99 family plan) this is a tempting price point for android users.

    A brief discussion of what Apple Music [is] can be found here.

    As an Android user are you willing to give Apple Music a trial or are you going to pass?

    To answer my own question, after watching those videos I am going to give it a try. $9.99 per month is what I would pay for Google Music.

    I pay $7.99 for Google Music so two dollars more isn't bad. I'll be passing this one up though since I am already subscribed to the GM service.

    Ok so they have a $14.99 family plan. That's what's up.

    It was MOG before it was BEATS. I really liked the service because of the highest quality streams, at least on laptop (320 bit), and the fact you could play specific songs or albums from artists.

    Of course, that quality of stream could be an issue for people on capped data plans (@100 megs per hour of music).

    Anyway, I've got a pretty big library of music that I can stream, and if I want newer stuff or more variety I still like Pandora free. And if you want higher quality without ads, Pandora is less than half this price.

    Between Pandora, Slacker, iHeart, TuneIn & Prime music, I have no need to pay 10 bucks a month for Apple music.
