Google to launch music search service : Interpret this as, “We know nothing, but everyone get excited!!”
Google plans to launch a music service, Wired.com has confirmed with sources familiar with the situation. Next to nothing is known about the service at this point, rumored to be called “Google Music,” “Google Audio,” or “One Box,” although we have confirmed that it will be announced next Wednesday, and that it will link out to two music services: Lala and iLike.
Google will not become a music retailer itself, but will offer enhanced music search with a streaming function — the first of possibly several vertical search offerings.
It would be interesting if they called it “One Box,” as that’s the name of their extensibility architecture for the Google Search Appliance.
