Step aside, iTunes: Google Music challenges Apple with digital music store
Google has shown they're willing to compete with Apple in every field, and is planning to challenge iTunes for the digital music market.
Here's more from The Canadian Press:
Google is unveiling its much-anticipated digital music store in the U.S. as it opens a new front in its battle with Apple to provide services over mobile devices.
For the first time, Google will sell songs on the Android Market, its online store for apps, movies and books.
Songs were priced at free, 69 cents, 99 cents and $1.29. Some examples of artists whose work is available right away include Coldplay, Drake and Pearl Jam.
The songs are automatically uploaded for free into a customer's online locker, and then can be streamed over computer and mobile phone browsers, including the Safari browser that comes on Apple Inc. devices.
Google Inc. unveiled the service Wednesday.
