It was just this past week that Apple's purchase of book lamp the Pandora of books was confirmed by Apple that all begs the question what is Pandora the Pandora of?
Sources say the deal is worth about $30 million and comes on the back of a string of content apps that Apple has picked up over the last couple of months including Beats and the aforementioned book lamp people.
