Google Audio to Launch This Week

Google recently announced that it is going to launch Google Audio this week. What does this mean for iTunes? If it’s a download service, Google Audio will be competing directly with iTunes. iTunes holds an obvious a monopoly over music downloads: Ask anyone who downloads music (legally) where they get their music and they will likely say “iTunes”.

Like all Apple products, iTunes is very easy to use and incorporates a user-centered design. Of course, this has contributed to the iTunes’ success. Google is also known for its simple, user-friendly products. Maybe Google Audio will give Apple iTunes some competition. I’m interested to see if this service will offer music streaming or music downloads. If I had to guess, I would say streaming, because this would compete with iTunes more indirectly.
