MacDailyNews Take: That would be Greg and a handful of other anti-Apple ultra-geeks, many of whom seem to work at CNET. There’s no “disappointment;” even we have the patience to wait until Apple is done cooking this one up.
Sandoval continues, “Music industry sources told CNET this week Apple has informed label managers that a streaming music service is unlikely to be ready before the third quarter.”
MacDailyNews Take: There are mutliple ways to report anything. For example: “Music industry sources told CNET this week Apple has informed label managers that a streaming music service is coming by third quarter 2010.” There: all “disappointment,” invented and imagined, dissipated. Poof!
Sandoval continues, “It will be a disappointment for iTunes fans who have been speculating as to when Apple might use music site Lala–which Apple acquired in December–for its streaming expertise to launch a cloud-based music service… Some had hoped such a service might arrive when Apple unveiled the iPad tablet in January, but it was a no-show… Besides a later-than-hoped-for start to Apple’s streaming, all of this also means that music–which has typically played an important role in most of Apple’s culture-changing devices–will be bumped to the sidelines with the iPad.”
MacDailyNews Take: “Some?” Seriously, Greg? “Later-than-hoped-for” by whom, exactly? “Bumped to the sidelines?” Sandoval and CNET must think very, very little of their readers.

MacDailyNews Take: Greg’s feverish spin is perfect for anyone dizzy enough to bother reading CNET.
