Says Fortune; Apple looks set to license the forthcoming Windows version of iTunes as the music download client for AOL. That would somewhat rapidly make them the biggest player in the ‘net music game, which is interesting in itself.
But it also sounds like what used to be called a ‘middleware’ deal. And… er… wasn’t that Gil Amelio’s thing?
(Cheap shot, I know. I’m still sore that despite the Apple Music Store being cool, quick, and really really slick, I can’t actually buy anything because I’m a limey.)
