Lala users will want to take as much streaming music in as they can these next few weeks. Today it’s been made officially known that on May 31st, the service they’ve come to know and love will cease to exist — at least as Lala.com that is…

After Lala was picked up by Apple weeks back, many speculated that the obvious (Lala closing) was going to happen. Apple usually assimilates companies for their services, technology, and/or ideas.

The most apparent reason for shuttering the streaming favorite is simple — iTunes.com. Apple has been heard commenting on such a service. Truthfully, it makes sense. A lot of sense actually. If Apple can have iTunes.com supplement the native iTunes and function in near identical ways, it will be a huge development for iTunes, Apple, and digital music overall.

What about current Lala purchases and credits? No worries folks, Apple is doing you right. All current outstanding credits (gift cards, Lala account balance, purchased web songs) will go towards iTunes credits — nice!

The workers’ futures on the other hand are still up in the air. Hopefully Apple can take care of them like they’re taking care of customers.

Any Lala users upset about the situation?
