For well over a decade, the music industry has been trying to figure out the Internet and they have failed more often than they have succeeded. Declining music sales and the rise of free sources like YouTube and Pandora have left a once proud industry in a state of perpetual anarchy. Half of it is trying to adhere to old paradigms like asking for $20 for fully digital albums while others are trying more unconventional methods. The happy medium for now seems to be music streaming.

And having long since blazed past Apple's original iPod that could "put 1000 songs in your pocket", many people now want all of their music everywhere, at any point, regardless of the device they're using at the time. And now that the HomePod has arrived, many are wondering whether to sign up for Apple Music, or if there is a cheaper option to get access to their iTunes Music collection on that device.
