Google just announced the launch of Google Play, a site where all your media (apps, books, movies, songs, etc) can be found in one place. You can upload all the media you have and Google stores it for you free (and it never gets lost or needs the location changed). Also, the site will rent and sell all media from all time.
So rather than trying to search all over various sites and hard drives, everything can be in one place, at no cost. I think this site will be useful for expert computer users as well as novices. Looks like Google hit a home run on this one.
Their promo verbiage makes the point:
Now your favorite music, books, movies, apps, and games are all in one place that’s accessible from the Web and any Android device. Discover, buy and share like never before.
The power of the cloud expanded with Google Play. Combined with Google +, we’ll be able to share our media with our friends and have access to almost everything. Here’s a Google Play Help site to answer more questions.
I’m not fully utilizing Google + yet, but plan to work on that. I particularly want to use Google Hangout more, to be able to connect with co-workers or friends easily in video conference. Imagine talking with someone on the jobsite and easily being able to see what they are seeing as you talk? That’s a real benefit.
As usual, I have Lex to thank for bringing this new development to my attention. All I can say is, “Kneal, baby, you’re slipping, you usually have the hotest tech tips for me. Is making a living for your family getting in the way of web surfing?”
