Online jukebox Lala hooks up with Facebook and Google. Together, can they mount a serious challenge to Apple?
Apple rules music retail for now: iTunes passed Wal-Mart (WMT) last year to become the top-grossing music store in the world. But that doesn't mean things will stay that way.
The latest challenge to iTunes comes from Bill Nguyen, the serial entrepreneur who founded Lala.com.
