Tune in and turn up

Joining an already crowded streaming field including services like Spotify, Pandora and iTunes Radio, Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine have announced their plans to expand their “Beats” empire. Costing $10 dollars a month and drawing from a catalog of 20 million songs, it will come with an app that works with Apple’s iOS devices, Android-based products and Microsoft Windows Phone devices. The service will have a feature called Right Now that enables users to get a custom mix after telling the app where they are, what they’re doing, who they’re doing it with, and what music they’re in the mood for. Beats launches in the U.S. on January 21.
