Google Music: Amazingly worse than Microsoft Zune
The Apple iTunes wannabe Google Music can’t even compete with the Microsoft Zune.
“Google Music Is a Complete Letdown” by Adrian Covert of Gizmodo:
The ideas behind Google Music are tired. An a la carte music store? A storage locker? MP3 lending? Guh. These concepts are all old. More to the point, they’re DONE…
It’s nothing more than the application of current technologies to yesterday’s ideas.
Even the failed and discontinued Microsoft Zune is more open:
Let’s move on to this song sharing system. Like really? Remember the time the Zune came out and let all 37 Zune owners “squirt” tracks to one another? I bet you don’t. Let me refresh your memory: Even Microsoft let borrowers play a song more than once (Google limits you to a single play).
Google Music Marketed to the Clueless
It’s also hilarious to see Google Music marketed to Android / Windows users (no Apple products shown on the site), when most Google employees use Apple computers.
