Apple is reportedly close to launching a new streaming music service.
The company could sign a deal with major music labels as early as next week.
That would clear the way for Apple to compete with current powerhouse Pandora.
Apple isn't talking, but those in the know say in addition to playing and selling music, the service would allow users to jump back to the beginning of a song.
That's something Pandora's free service doesn't offer.
