Apple launched a cloud-based service called iTunes Match. For $24.99 a year Apple will match your iTunes library with its server and let you stream it from any PC, Mac or iDevice. You can store up to 25,000 songs not purchased on iTunes in the cloud. In other news, Amazon’s tablet, the Kindle Fire, is officially available for purchase. The device will do many things for only $200, but doesn’t have full access to the Android Marketplace. If you’re a heavy user of Amazon’s digital products, the Kindle Fire is for you. And finally, AT&T is bringing true 4G LTE service to six cities including Charlotte and Las Vegas by November 20th. The network will cover 15 markets by the end of the month, but AT&T still has a lot of catching up to do, to compete with Verizon.
