Google Music coming soon!

    Have you ever had a song on your iPod, Android, computer, or any other web-enabled device, and pulled it up, only to realize it was on your other internet-enabled device? Although that may sound a bit ridiculous, Google Music doesn't. It's a simple concept that may indeed revolutionize the way we listen to music today. Basically, you just upload any song from any device onto your Google Account, then you can listen back to all of your songs anywhere you are logged in! So you could buy a new Android phone (or any other smartphone for that matter) and have all your favorite songs (and more) right there as you log in for the first time! Android users will even be able to access all of that music offline. Google is saying it may eventually incorporate a music store into this service, allowing users to purchase music as well as store it online.
    Although the service isn't quite out yet, tomorrow (5-10-11), a Beta test of the service will be given out to specific Google Users. The best part is: it's perfectly legal! Many companies, websites, and programs like Frostwire, Limewire (see former post), and others are easy used against the law, but Google Music is completely legal and works just like an iPod, the same iPod, on all your electronic devices. Google may next be vying to overtake iTunes, the popular music player and store. With over 350,000 Android phones activated every single day, having the Google Music App eventually pre-installed could give Google the upper hand against Apple and its iTunes, with at least a hundred thousand less iPhones being activated each day.
