What if We Replaced iTunes With the Cloud?

My partner and I often talk about the concept of leveraging the cloud for music storage and playback (having even looked at Venture Capital raising to do it ourselves), rather than the traditional synchronisation between storage devices.

ReadWriteWeb have a great piece on the current options.

The reason for the appeal: universal access to your content.

I have an iPod in my car, an iPhone with me most of the time, iTunes on my laptop, and iTunes on our media PC. My partner also has the iPod, the iPhone and laptop. You can see how synchronising our music over all these devices is painful (coupled with Apple's Fairplay DRM which limits you to 5 computers running iTunes).
