Apple's recent unveiling of its iTunes Radio music streaming service is tacit admission that cloud-based jukeboxes are the wave of the future, not its still-profitable iTunes business model of selling individual songs and albums. Ironically, Apple's well-stocked App Store has many cloud-based alternatives to iTunes, including Amazon Cloud Player, Pandora Radio, Rdio, Spotify and very soon Google Play Music All Access.

These apps might appeal to people pondering a switch to a non-Apple tablet. For instance, Microsoft said recently that an iTunes app for Windows 8 won't arrive "any time soon." This news poses a problem for iTunes aficionados switching from the iPad to a Windows RT slate. Why? Windows RT can't run traditional Windows desktop software, which means RT users can't use the iTunes for Windows program.
