Apple and music labels have intensified their negotiations to launch an ad supported Internet radio service by early 2013, reports Bloomberg.

thanks for your email, amber! i'm glad you wrote! yes, i do have an iphone -- but i'm trnyig out this new phone because it's apparently the best for social media and got a glowing review in the new york times. i tried to explain that clearly in my first nokia post; maybe i should have mentioned it again here. apologies! i do just a few sponsored post a year -- very few and far between. but thank you so much for writing, i'm definitely going to take your feedback into account. i really, really care what you (and other readers) think and i'm glad you shared. i know that i've gotten sick of other blogs when they do too many sponsored posts, and i'm trnyig to figure out a good balance of doing sponsored posts with brands i love & accepting advertising, so i can keep blogging as a business. it's all still a bit of the wild west!thanks so much for writing,joannaxoxo
