So, Google's rumors of "Google Music" have found their way onto the internet again -- at first glance, it looks like a very basic music preview tool: Nothing groundbreaking.
But, let's also take a look at what it could be -- and why I'm a bit excited to see what actually happens on the 28th of this month. A few things will potentially happen around the same time -- and when combined, have the potential to be something worth writing home about.
1) Google is going to launch Google Muisic on October 28th. As far as we know right now, this is simply an easy way to preview songs before Google redirects you somewhere to purchase them.
2) Motorola Droid phone (using Android 2.0) will be released on October 28th too. Hmm... what if Motorola and Google are teaming up to take on the iPhone's iTunes application -- giving users the ability to download music over the air?
3) Vevo is set to be launched sometime "later this year" according to reports dating back to April. What's Vevo? It's the service being created by Google and Universal Music which will let users watch music videos and such -- nobody really knows exactly what it's going to be though, so why not bundle this in with the other two?
What do you think? Could these things all be related? Let's hear what you think in the TalkBack!
