"An Apple spokesperson confirms that any music you want to access from your cloud-based 'locker' will still need to be stored on your iPad, or iPhone, or whatever
device you're using to listen to the song," All Things D reports. "This applies both to music you've purchased from Apple's iTunes store, and, when Apple's iTunes Match service starts up this fall,
with music you've acquired some other way."
Referring to a video demonstration that made the rounds on Monday, Apple tells All Things D that what looked like a "stream" is actually a "simultaneous listen and download -- users can hear the song while their machine ingests it." Cutting hairs? Perhaps. But Apple was apparently unwilling to go into further detail about how the forthcoming service will work.
