    According to Gigaom...

    I don't know about anyone else, but for me that's a very disappointing revelation. I understand why this may end up being the case but I was very excited about the earlier discussion that a form of "streaming" without affecting our iDevice's permanent memory was going to be added to the iTunes/iCloud mix. I hope that Apple will revert to the earlier model (or at least give users the option to use it), but only time will tell.

    My understanding is there are some legal issues with simply playing music - streaming - that are avoided by simultaneously playing while downloading.

    I think you will see a local storage after playing requirement. Whether you can set the player to automatically purge music once it's been played is to be seen.
