Amazon has had fantastic success with its Prime service that gives users free expedited shipping along with streaming video.

A new report suggest Amazon is getting into the streaming music business. Much as they do with their selection of movies, sources say Amazon is in discussions with several music labels to offer the same with music. The hang-up for them seems to be an opaque pricing war.

The box, long rumored but never seen, is now reported as coming out in March.
