Maybe I'm slow. But, I'm somwhat confused? Is it 25 a month or year both the article and video say both? Or is there 2 different services that I'm not understanding?

Pretty sure it's $25/year, I believe that's what the original iOS5 announcement said.

We all know that i am an iDiot. But i will NOT pay $25 a month for this service. It is not that important for me to get my music. I will stick with getting my music from my MacBook.
Mark my words, if this service is $25/Month just to access music VIA cloud, it will FLOP.

Seems like a lot of money to stream your music. If it was a subscription to stream any song on the entire iTunes library, I could MAYBE see the value in it. Still, $25 a month!

It's all about marketing. The iSheeps will subscribe to it.
