Google Music Cloud Services Coming Today?

There are rumors out that Google could be launching, as early as today, a new Google music service that seems similar to what Amazon.com recently launched.

This isn’t a service that is going to compete with the likes of iTunes however.

Google’s music service seems to be more like a data storage service where users can upload music they’ve already purchased, and then listen to the music in a streamlined platform designed for the organization and delivery of music files.

The service offering from Google is said to only include an upload function – no downloading of music.  This is an attempt on Google’s part to limit the risk of the spreading of pirated music.
