Beats by Dre streaming service

GIVE US YOUR ANSWER, DO: Online nerds are abuzz over comments by artist and Beats by Dre Chief Creative Officer Trent Reznor to The New Yorker about the company’s forthcoming streaming service. Bearing the temporary moniker Daisy and built on the architecture of streaming service MOG (which Beats acquired over the summer), the service will apparently offer a hybrid of human-based and algorithm-driven recommendations. Reznor says Daisy will offer “intelligent curation,” likening it to “having your own guy when you go into the record store who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn’t necessarily have encountered.” He also says the first-wave services that picked music for listeners have lost their allure and begun to feel “synthetic.” Could Daisy find the sweet spot for musical discovery? How are these tantalizing but still vague hints going over at the offices of Spotify, Pandora and other streaming services (including iTunes, which has streaming from “the cloud” as part of version 11)?
