Even less chances of Tidal being open to better integration into third-party players then, eh.

It's a rumor.

I guess this would fit with Apple's "Premium" market strategy.

I think Apple wants to keep CD quality off peoples devices.

But then, I still don't know what a Jay Z is and I have all my CDs ripped losslessly so I don't use any of those services.

Almost pure speculation, with the site providing a link back to itself as evidence initially, then to a dubious Wall Street Journal speculative article.

This is what "news" has become in our world, "He said she said, they might one day... scratch their butt."

News is getting stranger and stranger.  "Sponsored by" links that look like news articles.  Editorial presented as news.  Articles that are full of typos.  Hello, editor?

It is a noisy world and getting noisier by the minute.

I miss the day when the news came in the morning paper, dropped on the doorstep.  It had a cohesive voice.  It was our news, not the news of blathering idiots.

Sometimes, I miss dropping that paper there at 5:45AM on a snowy, blowing January day.  Not often.  Just once in a while.

Don't forget that comedy shows are now "news" too.  The Daily Show, et al.  Comedy.  But many people consider them a legitimate source of news.  Which is troubling because it's comedy.  It's parody.  But people use it as news, which means that they believe some part(s) of the parody as reality.
