Storing my music in the cloud is extremely attractive to me if it's accessible everywhere (laptop, TV, stereo, iPhone, iPad, car stereo). The prices I'm seeing mentioned online are extremely inexpensive compared to the other streaming services I pay for like Netflix. So far so good. I'm seeing a lot of complaints about how Google will determine what music was legally purchased and what wasn't, but really, would that be their responsibility? I'm not clear on that, but I'm also not that concerned about it because I do purchase my music legally. Call me old fashioned. Plus, if artists are actually getting paid per spin, wouldn't that actually be a way for the industry to make money from both legal AND illegal downloads? Sounds like a way to recoup some of that lost money. Can it be done? I don't know. But I like the idea of it. I don't want to take up too much more of the comment space here, but I blogged my personal thoughts about music storage in the cloud vs local storage (even vs good old fashioned physical discs), so if anybody's interested, you can find that here: http://www.kelley-online.com/2011/03/music-storage-in-cloud.html At the end of the day, some say Google has too much of a monopoly, but their products have enabled me to do business successfully for many years now, so I'm loyal to them. I can say the same of Apple. Whichever one does it best will be the one that gets my subscription, and I'll likely try them both instead of just taking someone else's advice at face value. May the best monopoly win! :)
