OT: Google Music
« on: May 10, 2011, 04:13:20 pm »

Google announced today a music service that people on this forum should find interesting. I heard that it will allow ~20000 songs to be kept on the cloud. My first question would be whether they will have an API so that MC can access the music in the cloud remotely. The new MC server capabilities are great, but they still require a server computer to be on, which may be problematic for some people. Cloud would overcome this problem.

Also Invite-only for now.

Seems like a clone of the Amazon CloudDrive thing to me, with a nice Android front-end.

Sounds like Ubuntu One as well...

These services would be great, except for the dodgy mobile data limits in Oz  :(

The news so far leaves me a bit unimpressed to be honest, i can do more or less all the same stuff with MC.

I just posted another thread about Amazon's already publicly released Cloud Drive.  I don't know for a fact that it's available outside the US, but my enthusiasm for it is based on tracks and albums I purchase automatically going my cloud drive. 
Yes, I could access my tracks from MC, assuming my home hardware was behaving properly whenever I want.  But it's a heck of a lot easier to buy tracks on my phone, have instant access to them. and then later be able to download the tracks at home for my local library. 
I expect more and more of everyone's storage (and applications, to a degree) to be cloud-based in the coming years for many of the same reasons businesses are flocking to it.  I am permanently locked to my image mgmt software because it allows a direct link to my SmugMug photo account that I can't live without.  I'd like the same to be true for MC (I'm already loyal to MC, just want to add this reason)
