  1. A+ Would Buy Again: Amazon Gives Customers MP3 Versions of Physical CDs

    If you've ordered a CD off Amazon in the last fifteen years but haven't gotten around to ripping it to your computer yet, don't worry. Amazon just announced a new AutoRip feature for the Amazon Cloud Player, giving users free access to MP3 versions of their physical CDs. Sounds great. The only downside I see to this is having to look back on all the embarrassing CDs you purchased in 1998. According to Billboard, the #1 album that year was the soundtrack for Titanic. You've probably got Celine Dion waiting for you in your Cloud Player right now.

  2. $%*! Google Music Switches Clean Songs With Explicit Versions

    Google Music is a great way to listen to your music library without having to store it all in multiple locations. Great, that is, until it turns on you. Google Music has swapped out some users' hardcore awesome explicit versions of songs with their lame radio edit counterparts. Some users have even reported their clean versions of songs being replaced by the explicit versions, which can be a problem if you have kids and an affinity for the Beastie Boys, or maybe it can just make your day a little edgier.

  3. Google Launches New Music Store in Android Marketplace

    Google turned quite a few heads with the release of its streaming music locker service some months back, which allowed users to store up to 20,000 songs regardless of size on the search giant's servers. From there, the music could be streamed to any device for free via a data connection. Last night, Google added another piece to their growing foray into the musical world with the announcement of a music download store as part of the Android Marketplace.

  4. Google Music Beta: This Is What Music Lovers Have Been Waiting For

    At today's I/O Conference, Google announced the introduction of Music Beta, a new system for storing and syncing music collections on the cloud. It launches today as an invite-only service for US users: You can request an invite on the Music Beta page. The service allows the storage of a whopping 20,000 songs, blowing Amazon's similar, 5 GB-capped service out of the water, and Google said today that it will be free for at least as long as it is in beta. One Twitter user jokes that based on Google's lengthy beta track record -- Gmail was in beta from 2004 to 2009, for heavens' sake -- that it will probably be free for five years. Even if it isn't, Music Beta brings something new and exciting to the table.

  5. Report: Google Wants to Launch an iTunes Competitor by Christmas

    According to a recent Reuters report, Google is gunning for its long-rumored mobile-based iTunes competitor, which may or may not be called Google Music, to launch by Christmas of this year. This jibes with previous rumors that the service would launch alongside Android 3.0 in fall or winter of 2010. Here's the thing: according to the Reuters report, Google has yet to sign a licensing deal with a single major label, though the music industry is reportedly "excited" about the prospect of iTunes getting a serious competitor in online music.
