Google Announces Cloud Service

Google announced yesterday that it will be introducing a cloud based music services. This is the second major company to make this shift, the first being Amazon. is where you can go if you wish to sign up for the beta program. If allowed in, you will have the ability to upload your personal library and stream it on the go. However, this will only work with Android devices and regular computers. iOS mobile devices will not be able to use this service, or, at least, not off the bat. Knowing Google they will deliver service to iOS devices later on once they know people will use their service. Amazon made the same move on not allowing iOS devices, but later on made capability available. This announcement begs one question: Is Apple getting a cloud based service ready? There have been rumors, and of course they all sound convincing. People around the web suggest that Apple may have built a data center with PETABYTES of storage. Every petabyte is 1000 terabyte, just to put it in prospective. We will have to wait and see who wins the cloud wars.
