According to a report by Reuters, Google is setting up a music store to compete with apple on the digital music business. The store seems to compete directly with iTunes.
Google Inc is in talks with music labels on plans for a download store and a digital song locker that would allow its mobile users to play songs wherever they are as it steps up its rivalry with Apple Inc, according to people familiar with the matter.
Google’s Andy Rubin, the brains behind Google’s Android mobile operating system, has been leading conversations with the labels about what a new Google music service would look like, according to these sources.
Rubin, Google’s vice president of engineering, hopes to have the service up and running by Christmas, two of these people said.
The music industry hopes to benefit from a battle for control of the mobile phone and computer desktop between Apple and Google as both technology giants go head-to-head in a wide range of media and consumer technology areas including online TV and movies, mobile phones, software and even advertising.
Hello Google, I am just wondering will you be competing with every kind of products in the world? Music pirates, you will have a tough time going ahead as Google is in the digital music business and you have lesser chance in getting yourself listed in the Google search results
