Apologies for that headline: the obvious riposte is ‘Well, yes, but will it?’. Music crops up in a long Business Week article about Google’s future strategy, in a section focusing on the company’s Android boss Andy Rubin. The article tells how Rubin has seized control of Google’s digital music strategy, working with former YouTube lawyer Zahavah Levine to sign licensing deals with the major labels. The report confirms that Google’s service involves cloud storage and synchronisation – something Google itself showed off last year – and claims that “the offering could be unveiled as soon as next month”. However, Business Week takes care to point out that no actual deals have been signed yet, while CNET’s sources claim a launch is “months” rather than weeks away.
