iPad a disappointment for those wanting cloud-based music

Saturday April 3, 2010 is the day when those who pre-ordered the Apple iPad should take possession of their new tablet device, but that joyous day will be met with disappointment if they were hoping that cloud-based music would be available to them in time.

CNET has been talking to a number of music industry sources that Apple will not have its streaming music service ready until the third quarter. This will certainly disappoint iTunes users, who were hoping to start using this service once the iPad is released.

The new cloud-based music service means that users who purchase music will be stored on record labels servers — allowing them access at any time. This could do away with the need for large storage devices in the home, but Green Peace fears that cloud-based system such as this will produce more carbon emissions.

If Apple were to offer cloud-based music storage — would you use it?
