    Google adds music search and purchase features

    Ever searched for song lyrics, or the name of a song on Google? The number of music related searches that occur on Google is massive, so Google is leveraging this fact with new search and purchase functionality just for music.
    When a user enters a music-related search in Google search box, the resulting search returns information about the artist, a few albums and a picture, when available, above the standard search results.

    A link to "more" music results leads to user reviews, song titles and a choice of online retailers where the music can be purchased.

    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Okay, let me get this straight, MS get sued for putting IE with the OS? A free product with their OS.

    Google start using their search entry point for commercial activities like this will be a hudge blow to whoever can't afford to buy into it. But at the same time it could turn out to be like froogle a staggeringly useful resource, even thou people lie on their database, and postage issues etc..... rant..... rant... google are scaring me now.
