    Service won't directly compete with Apple's offerings, but may threaten them via Android tie-in or piracy

    Many have tried and failed. Apple, Inc.'s (AAPL) iTunes, which recently celebrated its tenth birthday remains the most powerful force in the digital music business, having stomped out some would-be rivals and held others -- like Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) -- off.

    But Apple may finally have met its match -- music beta by Google (better known as "Google Music").

    I. A True Competitor?

    Perhaps no market player has figured out how to beat Apple quite as well as Google Inc. (GOOG). The younger firm has left its Cupertino foe far behind in the smart phone market, succeeding where others like Palm and Microsoft failed.

    In the tablet sector, Android appears the only true challenge, at present, to Apple's dominance.

    Many had long believed that Google would jump at the opportunity to throw down its gauntlet and challenge Apple's thriving iTunes music business. But even as Google diversified its content delivery, buying YouTube and launching special music video channels, a discrete music delivery service remained unrealized.

    But sometimes an idea is too attractive to forever go unfulfilled, and Google has at last announced a music service.

    II. Something Old, Something New
    Google's music beta is here, announced by Google at its annual I/O Conference for developers (similar to Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference). But the service isn't quite what some had imagined...................................................................

    Kama watakuwa wanauza na muvi mpya dunia nzima hadi huku Afrika watawashika Apple, lakini wakiendelea na usanii wao wa ku-regionalize masoko I don't see why mtu ashift kutoka Itunes wakati it is proven and known product.

    Kaka online transactions ndio ugumu wako ulipo hapo, maana kuna mambo ya taxes na sheria za copyrights..na kila nchi ina utaratibu wake. Hii barrier kubwa sana.

    ndo hapo chacha kumbe ni vya wachache. Wa us watatujuza. Lakini unaweza kujaribu ku fake au kui hide ip yako iwe ya ki US US

    Jaribu kutumia proxy kama hii http://sixweekbodymakeover.net/

    List ya porxy nyingine waweza ipata hapa. http://www.publicproxyservers.com/proxy/list1.html

    unaweza kutumia program ya Hide my IP pia. but nadhani google wanaweza kutambua hizi mbinu zote but nimejaribu one of them nasubiri majibu.
