  1. Google employees have begun testing Google Music internally. This would suggest the much anticipated service is nearly ready to launch, according to music industry sources cited by CNET.

    Pandora already has me covered Google, but I will give you a shot and check out if you have any special features that Pandora doesnt offer.
     
  3. I expect a music app update at least w/ launch of news service.
     
  4. I hope its like Rhapsody...but I doubt it. Rhapsody is the only one that lets you download as many songs as you want to mp3 players and phones for $10.00 a month. But I think it could be better. Their blackberry win win 7 apps have issues and as of yet you can't download for offline use. But it works great with ITouch and cheaper mp3 players.
     
  5. Magnatune also lets you download as many songs or albums as you want in various formats including MP3, for $45 every three months, and is "not evil" because they give 50% of the proceeds to performers rather than the average 5% most musicians get. http://www.magnatune.com
     
  6. Slacker also lets you download as many songs as you want per month for $10. It's not just Rhapsody.
     
  7. Please just say this will be world-wide. There are all those services that seem great, but really are worthless because they're limited to North America/USA. We do not care about that in Europe!

    I second that guest, too many good unlimited download music services are our of Europe area so no-one gets our cash in this digital age. If it did happen, my worry is that it will cost at least twice as much as USA due to greed and nothing else.
     
  9. Last.fm got me covered for years now. But oh, well.

    I'd rather have a cloud service like Amazon's forthcoming venture. I've got enough music already... I just want to be able to access it from anywhere.
     
  11. Grooveshark for life homes!
