Details are still scarce as of this moment, but reportedly, Google is coming out with a new music store. Additionally, it will be linked to Google’s Music Beta -which really isn’t so “beta” anymore – and should be launched within a few weeks. This will serve as a competitor to Apple’s iTunes, and also offer Android users better music integration. Google is still working out the details with record labels and publishers, and we’re all excited to see how it turns out. We’re probably going to see both desktop and Android optimized interfaces, and songs for $0.99, much like iTunes….

The race for the top social network isn’t over yet, Facebook. Giant search engine company Google expands its realms to the social networking world with the announcement of Google+, a site that could be mistaken for Facebook, if not for the logo and design. Google+ has its version of Facebook Groups with Circles (plus easy-to-use privacy settings for each ‘circle’) and Facebook Chat with Huddles (plus a video chatting feature called Hangouts). What would possibly dethrone Facebook, experts say, would be the integration of Android for photo uploads. Google+, while it appears to be like Facebook in more ways than…
