Screen shots of Google Music Store leak ahead of Wednesday unveiling?
To be clear: we don’t know  for sure what Google will be unveiling on Wednesday. Still, the invitations to Google’s “These go to eleven” event contain several music references, so the smart money says the event will be centered on Google Music.

There have also been rumors that Google would soon be launching a music store. Both of these rumors are getting a boost from screen captures posted by Spanish-language blog TechnoDroidVe. While not impossible to fake, the screen shots are consistent with current Google design, and the site appears confident in their source. If the images are legitimate they provide several new pieces of information about the Google Music Store.

The store will apparently have a “Free Song of the Day” section, where users will be able to download a featured song free of charge. The store also appears to leverage Google’s search expertise, providing a Genius-like list of recommendations of artists based on the music you’ve searched or previously downloaded.

The store is apparently still a work in progress, becoming more polished with each update, but this early glimpse looks pretty solid. Anyone else looking forward to Wednesday’s announcement?

Let's hope it is better than the Google Music android app and cloud music manager that is painful alpha code at best. Simply terrible implementation of a good concept.

Spot on, the Google Music app was pretty shoddy.

I've seen calculators with better programming than that travesty they call a music app.

Everyone gives you music drm free. iTunes gives you your music from free.

you have to pay extra for DRM free on itunes.. which is a rip-off. i want 1 price, DRM free all the time. and no, very few music services give you music DRM free.
rhapsody and zune erases all the music you download from that "unlimited music downloads for 15 a month" deal once you cancel your subscription.
most are either like that, or like itunes where its DRM'ed like crazy unless you pay extra
if you buy it straight from the music company or band a lot of time its DRM free but most people dont do that.

FYI, Zune gives you 10 free downloads a month DRM free, yours to keep forever. I used to use it. It is the best deal around. So, you are right that you don't keep all of the unlimited music, but no one does that because they'd lose crazy money.

I can't wait to see what Google offers!

I notice that T-mobile is also hosting the event. Live music too.

My guess is.....Maybe HTC announcing another Beats audio phone or some sort of special edition of their phones with Google Music already in it.

Kinda like, when the MyTouch came out with the Fender edition and Eric Clapton playing some tunes.
