    I need to convince my girlfriend why Google Music is better than itunes...

    But... She knows I'm a pretty savvy shopper, and the financial one of the couple... but she makes the argument that Google Music will charge 1.29 or more for a song that's .99 in iTunes.

    For that matter, why even buy music from Google when you can buy it cheaper on iTunes and then import it to Google Music?

    Google Music backs up "Up to 20,000" of your music and unlimited of what you buy from them... but I only have about 100 songs and she has about 2,000, and I thought her library was huge. So she kinda has a point... it practically backs up all of your iTunes music too... So why pay more?

    I don't know that you should switch if you're already a heavy user, but I've bought an album or two from Google and I love that I can stream right to my phone and not have to store them. I also refuse to support Apple because of their lawsuit idiocy, so a bit inflexible on that end. Google music works well with Android devices obviously. I love its instant playlist that will create a track group on the fly from most any song in your library. I also like not having to connect my phone to my computer every time I want to sync available files. AFAIK Apple hasn't updated the cloud to allow untethered syncing.

    To each his own.

    I hate iTunes. I mean, sure, there are good things, and only Amazon has them beaten price-wise. But I'm glad I'm not locked into their ecosystem. I'm too independent for that.

    For me it's all about access.

    I can purchase and play my Google music from music.google.com. Unlike iTunes where you have to download and install a bloated pos program for.

    Which honestly pisses me off to no end.

    Like during Christmas. I was going to get my friend an iTunes gift card. The store I went to didn't have a $15 one (either 10 or 20). So I thought I could go to apple.com and purchase and print there. Was I in for a surprise. Only way to do it is from iTunes. I flat out refused to download a program just to get a $15 gift card, and ended up giving her a $15 Amazon MP3 gift card.

    For me it's all about streaming and last I checked you can't do that with iTunes, I could be wrong with this iCloud thing though.

    Plus with google music you can access it from anywhere via tablet, phone, or browser. Huge plus for me.

    I think they both have pluses the plus for me is i can buy single tracks out of albums and itunes forces me to buy the album plus Google music has some pretty sweet deals on old school rap
