hmmm.... With 3 million free subs and 600K paying customers, I believe you are quite wrong about no one cares.
I have used most music services and my favorites are Pandora (for finding new stuff) and Spotify (I'm a paying customer).
I love Spotify. I got an invite when it first came to the US and pretty much right away opted in for the paid service. I don't own an iPad so i don't exactly care for this news, but...many others would love an iPad app. Saying it will die soon, is very very wrong.
