On the contrary, I'm quite bullish on Apple's prospects in streaming music since their acquisition of Beats. I just hope they don't mess things up if/when they decide to merge Beats Music with iTunes Radio. The two have drastically divergent approaches to UI design and one might argue that the Beats Music UI isn't a great fit for Apple's clean and simple philosophy.

If I'm understanding your vision, you're imagining an adjustable angle large screen desktop computer,with a soft keyboard appearing near the bottom as needed. For extended typing, the display would have to be nearly horizontal in order to allow the user to rest their palms to avoid fatigue. Also the keyboard (and a corresponding touch input area), would use up a significant portion of the display while...
 This looks awesome in movies but it would be exhausting for anyone with a typical 9-5 office job.
