You can read about the acquisition and what it means here, and here, and here, here, here , here and freaking here. Good freakin’ hail, people, get a grip, will ya’? Okay? Look, LaLa is dead or was going to be. This was all about buying the brains

of the outfit, using the tech (or not) within the confines of the Apple universe, give ‘the poindexter some Apple stock and options, a little cash, sign a NDA, and that’s it. And now you can say tra-la-la to lala. Ha, ha. ta-da!

LaLa may be acquired by Apple


CNET is rumormongering that Apple is offering to buy streaming music service lala for a boatload of clams, but only if founder Bill Nguyen stays and works for Cupertino. Why, if true? Google wants it, too, and both parties wants what’s in Nguyen’s head. Apple wants to keep Google from starting it’s own music service, especially one that’ll work within Chrome OS.

UPDATE: Reuters has reported Apple, Inc. has succeeded in purchasing LaLa for an undisclosed sum.
