Google to compete with iTunes?

BY THE APPLE GIRL

Rumors are flying around that Google is in search for a Google music head. Many sources cite that Eric Shmidt is attempting licensing deals with record companies. So, is Google planning a rival to Apple iTunes?

I think that by the time Google comes out with its music store, iTunes will be way ahead in the horizon with a cloud based iTunes store or an iTunes store with social networking features! Come Sept 1 with Apple’s special event, Schmidt might want to rethink his strategy!

Another Google failure coming up! Too little , too late! GoogleChic, I am sure you disagree! 😉

Too little, too late, really? What happens now when you google a song that you’re interested in? Google search returns youtube results along with the most relevant results.

AppleGirl, remember awhile back when you were making fun of Chrome OS? I recall that in the Chrome OS demo (cloud based OS by the way) when you searched for a song, you could stream the song directly from the search page. Now put that together with Google’s powerful engine to recommend songs based on your preferences, search criteria and the ability to instantly buy the song. Sounds pretty cool to me. Yes, a Google music store will benefit Android users but I think it goes beyond that and benefits web users as well. It looks like Google is trying to bring it up a notch!

  1. Well I believe this announcement comes with iTunes ping and it;s google intention to lead all the market..
    Somehow I’m a big fan of Google team since they have given so many great products but I would suggest Google should learn from their mistakes like Google wave and
    first they should try to strengthening their own running services instead of getting into new market…
    Anyways..I hope to see this new service rolling out soon and hopefully Google will create a difference with new music store…
