92: SiriusXM Buying Pandora, and A New Cloud Alliance: Tim Westergren, Pandora Co-founder

 

SiriusXM, the satellite radio giant, has announced a plan to buy Pandora, the streaming music pioneer. What does it mean for the future of content and subscriptions online? 

And a big week in cloud computing: I was in Orlando on Monday, and sat down for one triple-play interview with the CEOs of Microsoft, Adobe and SAP. They've got a big idea for collaboration in the cloud that they call the Open Data Initiative. Why does that matter to the rest of us? Well, it's got some implications for this whole debate over who really owns your data. 

Joining me this week is Pandora co-founder Tim Westergren.
