Apple Music vs. The Others

AppleMusic

Apple Music is here. Finally after months of rumors. Was the music streaming service worth the wait? Does have what it takes to battle Spotify, Rdio, Pandora and Tidal. The Internet radio service will cost $10-per-month. What will set it apart from the others is the family plan. For just $15-per-month a family of six can each stream what ever they want.  Below is a run down of Apple Music vs. The Others.
