Imagine having access to the entirety of your iTunes library no matter where you are. If this TechCrunch guest columnist is correct, that is Apple's plan for the next evolution of the iTunes software. Apple acquired Lala, a digital music start-up along the lines of Pandora, not for their streaming music service, but for their online storage service.

Lala users can copy their existing music catalogues to the Internet. Each user gets their own personal URL that they can visit from any connected device to access their music. If Apple takes this service and expands it to their entire iTunes customer base, we could soon be doing most of our rocking in the cloud.

Of course, users will keep their physical download library stored on their hard drive still. This service would just automatically copy any new music downloaded (or old music owned) and transfer it online. It's convenient, it's cool, and it gives customers another reason to stick with the iPod and iPhone.
