Apple radio arrives in September – but it will come with fast food ads and playlists of the company’s choosing, much like old FM radio. Users can avoid the ads if they sign up for the company’s cloud music service.
Websites show you ads based on other sites you visited. Now, online radio stations will start playing you songs based on the same information. This could spike growth in the radio ad industry and mean it won’t be weird to hear a tofu ad after a country song.
