Apple Shuts Down Lala Service

Apple has closed the doors on Lala after its purchase of the company in December. The Lala service has been discontinued as of May 31st, 2010. If you purchased web songs on Lala or had an outstanding wallet balance as of May 31st, 2010, an iTunes Store credit code will automatically be sent to your member email address no later than June 14th, 2010. Credit amounts will be based on your account activity as of May 31, 2010. iTunes Store credit amounts will be rounded up to the nearest $1 for refunds under $10, or to the nearest $5 for refunds greater than $10. Lala.com let users buy and listen to music through a Web browser, meaning customers can access their purchases as long as they are connected to the Internet. It is rumored that Apple could take technology gained from Lala to move iTunes into the cloud.
