- I have over 3,000 songs, so it’s taking a long time to upload them all. I have about 700 uploaded after 3 days (I haven’t been connected to it the whole time, in fairness), and it looks like it may be a week before this is through. I’m not sure if I just have a very large collection, or if Google Music is slow to upload.
- It plays similar to iTunes. When I put my music on shuffle, songs play at very good quality and feels like I’m listening to iTunes or Pandora. I am really excited about the convenience of having my iTunes account work like Pandora. (Added bonus, I think this will get around the filter at my work!)
- Google Music gives you free songs. Most of the songs Google gives you didn’t really interest me, but about 10 of the 100 or so were really good. I’ll take a few really good songs over several decent songs any day.
I don’t know what the new Apple cloud or MobileMe redux that Steve Jobs announced at the Apple keynote speech yesterday will be like until I actually use it, but so far, Google Music will be a very useful challenger.
I asked for the invitation to join it, and just got the invite on Friday. I like the idea of having my music backed up somewhere and accessible from any computer.
However, do I really want to put my music files out there for Google to use? How many of these accounts could I juggle?
I am trying Google because I got the invite, but I kinda want to try Amazon too. Bigger deal, will Steve Jobs and Apple announce a cloud drive that’s free to all Apple users tomorrow?
I would like to go with Apple to keep everything integrated (Google works with the Droid only for mobile), but I also have a deep affection for Google and Amazon.
This is the kind of stuff I have to ponder after a Mavs loss.
My iPhone. No contest. My dog would be 2nd.
Only at Gateway Church!
I am so blessed as a Christian and a social studies teacher.
This is true (almost). My nanny has never sat down to eat a meal until everyone else has at least began feeding and no longer needs assistance.
What does that have to do with anything?
It’s summer. I spend all year at school, “feeding” the children, who I believe are our future (Whitney Houston anyone?). I pace around, spooning out the mashed potatoes of knowledge and pouring on the gravy of creativity.
By summertime, I’m starving. So, tonight, I started my yearly summer ritual: take on a new creative project. So, friends, Rhomans, countrymen, I give you my Tumblr. Enjoy.
