Google Music Store

Google just announced the release of its own music store on the Android device. I don't think this is particularly big news. But I think it would have been even less news if Apple had developed iTunes for android in the first place like they did for Windows. I guess Steve Jobs was less than thrilled about making Android users happy.
The Google store is good news for the short term for Android users, although I think having an app at all for the Music store client does seems to be getting a little outdated. Music collections need to be on the cloud managed via rich web interfaces, where it doesn't really matter what OS is the host. But nevertheless, let's just say, this is a relatively good move by Google because they don't have to complete directly with iTunes on android devices right now.
