Will iTunes Continue to Thrive in the iRadio Age?

With the unveiling of Apple's iRadio at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this week, many immediately began speculating on how big of a competitive threat this new streaming music service would be to services such as Pandora . In this clip from this week's Motley Fool Weekly Tech Review, Fool analyst Eric Bleeker talks with host Chris Hill and analyst Austin Smith about the differences between iRadio and Pandora, what Apple would have to do to unseat the current king of streaming radio, and whether the growing trend of listening to streaming music will make keeping a collection of music on iTunes irrelevant and outmoded.
