I still think it would have been wiser for Google to partner with Amazon for music and video content
Google’s music service rollout follows Amazon’s decision to let consumers store digital music on its servers and stream the tracks to computers and Android smartphones. Google’s new service, like Amazon’s, will rely on cloud computing, which delivers songs over the Internet rather than keeping them on local hard drives. That differs from the approach of Apple’s iTunes, which offers downloadable tracks.
Google also previewed a program called Android@Home, which will let users connect Android-based devices to home accessories such as light switches and appliances.
