Everyone has been waiting for Apple to announce a streaming music service since Pandora, Rdio and Spotify started to take off. The Cupertino crew finally made good on people’s hopes and dreams at WWDC 2013 on Monday by announcing iTunes Radio in conjunction with iOS 7. Apple talked up the service so much, it was easy to forget what it’s actually competing against. iTunes Radio doesn’t change the game.iTunes Radio is a streaming music service that will work on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV, Mac, and PCs. The heart of iTunes Radio is Apple’s Genius smart playlist creator. New stations can be generated using any artist, song, or genre as a starting point. iTunes Radio will use individual listening history to shape the resulting radio stations. The more song data you provide iTunes, the smarter the streaming radio becomes. Apple describes this as a curated personal experience.Apple was careful to stress the importance of radio stations in the service. In fact, it doesn’t look like users will be able to build manual playlists at all. Services like Spotify and Google Play Music All Access allow users to select specific songs and albums to make playlists. Offline syncing is also part of the deal with these non-Apple alternatives, but iTunes Radio doesn’t appear to include that feature either.If any company has something to fear from Apple’s WWDC announcement, it’s Pandora. It’s really the closest analog to what Apple is doing with iTunes Radio. It’s a smarter Pandora, not a Spotify clone (where you can choose exactly what songs to hear).The one place Apple seems happy to let users dial in specific songs is when the time comes to buy them. At any time while listening to iTunes Radio, you can save a song to the wish list. iTunes also keeps track of every song played in one long list. The songs can be purchased directly from this interface and added to your iTunes collection. So, this service seems geared more toward encouraging traditional sales than replacing them, a la Spotify.The upshot of this arrangement is that Apple will allow anyone to stream iTunes Radio for free with ads. An iTunes Match subscription ($25 per year) entitles a user to ad-free streaming. The service isn’t set to launch until this autumn with iOS 7, so perhaps there will be some changes before that.

14 July 2008Hank McGregor won a spirited end-sprint to clinch his fifth Isuzu Berg River Canoe Marathon title on a river swollen by the heavy rainfall that had flooded the region for the past fortnight.The crowd at the finish at Velddrif saw McGregor outsprint Graeme Solomon to the line before hoisting a five-finger salute to celebrate becoming only the second paddler in history to win the overall race title five times.Paarl’s Donnie Malherbe wrapped up third place and the veteran’s honours, Matie student Heinrich Schloms was fourth, and Gavin White wrapped up a solid final stage by sprinting with the leaders to secure fifth place.Missed shortcutA disconsolate Lance King had to settle for sixth after being dropped from the front bunch on the final stage. It was a tough race for him as he slipped from third at the halfway point after a brave solo breakaway on the third stage imploded when he missed a key shortcut, squandering four-and-a-half minutes.King’s sixth place also dramatically affected the outcome of the inaugural pro team competition, which was snatched on the final day by the Team Value Added Life, anchored by Solomon, Malherbe and Schloms, who filled positions two to four.McGregor’s Team USN had to settle for second – despite the fact that McGregor won every single bridge prize hot spot and each day’s two-minute discount off his team’s overall time – after King finished sixth and Pieter-Willem Basson in eleventh place overall.Race recordDespite the very full and fast flowing river, McGregor’s winning time was still shy of the race record, set by Graeme Solomon in 2001, over a slightly shortened course.Abbey Miedema wrapped up her fourth title in the tough four-stage ultra-marathon, and her third in succession, when she completed a lightning fast final stage in 26th place overall.Her eventual time was around 111% of Hank McGregor’s winning time, earning her a substantial bonus, but it fell just short of earning her the equal prize money that had been offered for a 110% race time.The 28-year-old went into the race cautiously, after openly stating that she preferred tough low Bergs to the many gambles and risks associated with racing on a flooded river.Final stageThe final stage saw most of the field paddling over marshes that shortened the 56-kilometre stage by as much as 40%.“Jeepers it was fast!” chuckled Miedema. “According to my GPS, we paddled just 35 kilometres today.“We were paddling over fences, past silos and miles away from the main river,” she added. “A lot of time we didn’t really know where we were going, but it was so wide and open that it was easy to see the bunches ahead of you and follow the good lines.”She admitted that she and the others around her had survived a scare when it looked like they were heading into a dead-end channel. “Suddenly we were right in the thick of some trees, but we managed to find our way back to the main river without losing too much time.A ‘cheat’“It was such a different Berg,” Miedema said. “In some ways it feels like a bit of a ‘cheat’ Berg because it was so fast and the days were so short on the full river, compared to the last eight Bergs.”Miedema paddled much of the day with university student Abie Adie as she preserved her massive half-hour lead. Third place went to Jemma Hofmeyer following the withdrawal of Lindi-May Harmsen on the third stage.Harmsen injured her shoulder on the second day, and after battling through the early part of the third stage, opted out of the race to ensure that her challenge for the World Marathon Championships in the Czech Republic would not be adversely affected by the risk of aggravating the injury.Age group winnersThe junior title went to under-16 Milnerton scholar Ivan Kruger, who dominated the boys’ race. Joseph Williams and Hannes Pienaar finished second and third respectively.Mynhardt Marais was the first sub-master across the line, with Gauteng’s Brian Longley taking the grand master’s honours head of the first master home, Paul Lange.Cally Henderson paddled her way into the history books by becoming the first female master paddler to complete the race when she reached the finish at Velddrif Bridge.RESULTSMEN Hank McGregor 13:20.09Graeme Solomon 13:20.43Donnie Malherbe 13:29.39Heinrich Schloms 13:33.20Gavin White 13:34.53Lance King 13:36.48Pierre-Andre Rabie 13:41.03Ernest van Riet 13:43:27Angus McIntosh 13:46.41Ian Trautmann 13:49.39 WOMEN Abbey Miedema 14:55.06 (26th overall)Abie Adie 15:18.29Jemma Hofmeyer 16:16.21Lisa Scott 16:43.13Janet Vorster 17:46.11 Source: Isuzu Berg River Canoe Marathon
