The Google Music store: potentially, it’s a revolution

Google will allow any artist to create an artist page and upload and sell music through the store. That's a huge switch from how iTunes and other stores do it.

Yes, it's a huge difference compared with the iTunes store—and the sharing of music on Google+, as I had hoped, could turn out to be a killer feature... It's Google at its best, giving artists a home on the Internet in a way that no other platform has done so far. I'm hoping it will work out—but Google will need to show quite a bit more care and professionalism about this than they have done about their recent projects.

So I guess the jury's still out on this one...
