Well, it looks like HP’s year of acquisitions isn’t showing any signs of letting up just yet — it’s now reportedly bought Melodeo, the parent company of the Nutsie music streaming service, for between $30 and $35 million. While the service doesn’t exactly have the name recognition of the now Apple-owned Lala, Nutsie’s mobile applications (for iPhone, Android and Blackberry) have reportedly been downloaded more than two million times, and the company already has partnerships with a range of carriers and cellphone companies including Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. As TechCrunch reports, however, what might be most interesting is what the company has in store for Nutsie 3.0 — it will apparently let you copy your entire iTunes library to the cloud and access any song on demand (it currently offers a more limited service that only offers a shuffle mode). We’ll let you take the Palm / WebOS speculation from there.
