    Just read that Google is going to unveil a music store today that suppose to be a serious threat to Apples iTunes (I doubt it). But how true is this does anybody have more info on this?

    That seems to be the rumor. I wouldn't be surprised, at all. In fact, I'd be surprised if it weren't a store.

    Don't think the core iTunes base is their primary target market.

    52% of mobile market running around with Android devices, which double as portable media players. Having a store built-in that allows for easy purchase, storing of music makes sense. I've seen this done somewhere else, but cannot put my finger on it.:rolleyes:

    Have to admit, being in Canada, I really haven't any alternative to iTunes. Hoping Google's announcement today is international or at least continental.
