Can some get me the invitation? I loathe iTunes
It's not exactly an alternative to iTunes, there are plenty of desktop clients out there if you Google it. In fact I honestly don't get the fascination with having your music in the cloud unless your selection is so large it no longer fits on your mp3 player of choice at all times.
I got an invitation. I won't have time to play with it until tomorrow night.
Here is a similar service that I have been using: http://www.tunesbag.com/
Enterprise Architects have to keep themselves in work somehow.....
Gotta burn through those generous 3G data quotas somehow...
I actually don't mind having my music in the cloud as an additional location fo access, but the primary source will always be my NAS at home and on the go my iPod Nano has a significant subset in a tiny and very portable form factor. Will determine based on price whether I'll keep Google music after beta.
Good use of sarcasm (unless you're on Sprint)
I've already started putting music on "the cloud"(ie: my personal cloudlet of 4 1tb HDDs in a Drobo) by using WMP12's internet media streaming functions...my laptop has no music on it but when I go "TO THE CLOUD(insert cheesy music here)!" I have access to all my music that's stored on my computer/Drobo.
And of course, Amazon Cloud Player(what the heck do clouds sound like?)cause I only buy music from Amazon.
I use MediaMonkey 4 (currently an alpha but still great)
I totally get you though, I hate "cloud storage",I love having all my data on a device that I have physical access to(AWS i'm lookin at joo). I guess people like only having one place for their music/files/pr0nz...
Interesting approach. I have little use for streaming music since I have more ways to listen to stuff in my car than I care to, and when I get to where I'm going I'm rarely interested in music.
But what I do like is being able to watch movies on the go. I use Windows Home Server at home with a few TBs of storage thrown in and I use Air Video from inmethod (http://www.inmethod.com/air-video/index.html;jsessionid=699A3FA6200BAE563CDBA291E3D85C08) to access the stuff remotely. It allows real-time conversion/streaming or you can schedule conversions to watch later and even sync/move the converted stuff to iTunes.
I also sprinkled in some uTorrent running as a service, so I can access stuff that Netflix doesn't have. Makes road trips and airport wait times fly by.
If anyone's looking for a Google Music Beta invite, I found a blog giving them out for free. I figured that the waiting list would be too long, so I tried the blog out, and got my invite about an hour later. Nice.
I don't know if they have any remaining invites, but if you want to try your luck here's the site:
I check this out but McAfee put up Red Flags on all the survey sites. Thanks anyway.
Forgive me, new MP user, for being suspicious, but how come that page has this meta headers in the html source, matching what appears here as your name?

And on Tina's website we can find out that she's working at Google.
Correct me if I am wrong, but one way to interpret this is that a Google employee got ahold internally of some invites and then proceeded to "selling" them (for surveys) on the internet.
Good sleuthing HMWT Hope you visited in a VM or something....
Never click on posts made by people claiming that they got some invite/etc on a blog UNLESS the blog is 100% official.
One nice thing about "cloud storage" is that when I buy a new song I only have to populate one source of data...my car is integrated with my G2x so I can just buy my songs on Amazon and play them via Cloud Player for Android.
Plus I have some songs on the car's HDD...but I need to save it for maps.
Ever since they took out the disk combine feature I've been sour grapes But my Drobo makes up for it.
Says who? There are plenty of legal torrents out there.
Or so I've heard.
Chrome on Mac with Flashblock
Just as good heh.
I'm testing it, but haven't been giving any more invites to hand out yet? Is there a button or link somewhere? Is it on my account page? I'll ask the PM
Excellent intel work.
Could be that Google is engaged in the same sort of thing that FB used against them...
Naa, that would be evil. And they just gave me a Samsung Android tablet, a Chromebook and a Verizon 4G hotspot with free service for three months. Evildoers don't do that
