Music

"Google Music" is a service launched on December 15, 2005. The new service is not going to be a music library, such as Yahoo’s. The service will search libraries of legal download services and will provide links to the partners, as well as lyrics and biographies of the artist. Initial merchant partners include Apple Computer's iTunes service, RealNetworks's Rhapsody, eMusic and Amazon.com, and WalMart.com, Google said.
