Billboard :: Apple to Beat Google to the Cloud

Billboard :: Apple to Beat Google to the Cloud

[By Antony Bruno]
Watching the race between Apple and Google to see who launches a cloud-based music service first is kind of like the children’s fable of the Tortoise and the Hare. Except they’re both Tortoises.

But there are signs that the finish line is in sight.

First, Reuters has a piece saying that Apple has “completed work” on its online music locker service and will beat Google to market, even though label sources have not been told when that might be.

Additionally, Peter Kafka at AllThingsD says Apple actually has deals with two of the four major labels. He also says that Apple is planning a “scan and match” locker service, which means it would store one copy of each song in a central server, and let anyone who purchased that song on iTunes stream it to any device. This is the model that Lala championed, the company Apple bought in late 2009.

Still no details on pricing or time. And we’ve not yet been able to independently confirm any of this. But it sounds reasonable and in line with what we’ve been expecting from Apple all along.

As for Google, the Reuters story speculates that the company keeps changing its plans and that complicates the licensing talks. Google also has completed work on its music service, as reports surfaced a few weeks ago that employees are already testing it internally and there have been leaks of the app in various outlets. So it’s fair to say both Google and Apple have completed work on their music locker services, and all that remains is the licensing element. Continue Reading…
