Rdio pranks Apple Music with the most thoughtful letter
You know a company called Apple announced something called a Music streaming service today, right? Yes, you might have heard, and so has Rdio, one of the pioneers in the tunes subscription streaming field. Rdio offers access to more than 20 million tunes for over 10 million users, and has been around for almost five years, so it couldn't help but take a jab at Apple with the following heartfelt congrats:
Oh, how cute and adult of Rdio to respond to the possibility of a 100 million user strong competitor one would think, right? Wrong. Rdio is actually taking a stealth jab at Apple, recreating its own condescending posting in the NYT way back in 1981, when Apple congratulated IBM for being late to the party with this gem of a page. We guess revenge is a dish best served st(r)eaming then.
