Big Daddy Goog just sent out teasers for an announcement event on November 16th in Los Angeles with the tagline These go to Eleven running across the top. For the uninitiated, this is a quote from This is Spinal Tap, a film about a hard rock band whose amps are crankable to eleven (instead of the normal ten).


Given this suggestive headline, it's probably safe to assume that they will be announcing the long awaited Google Music Store, although a the image below the announcement suggests that there may be more to it than meets the eye (see that T-Mobile logo?). I guess we'll just have to wait until 11.16.11 and find out -- the entire even will be streamed live at the Android YouTube channel.

    If the Google Music Store is exclusive to the smallest carrier in America, then Google has failed.

    If the music store is exclusive to America, Google has failed. The world is bigger than your borders

      Europe had Spotify far before America. Stop being so haterish. It's all about launching in the market that works for the service at that time. Calm down. Promote world peace."

    Another thing to note from the picture the Life is beautiful banner is the name of a Sixx AM song that is available free from Google Music when it first came out

    Google's going to announce that they outbid AT&T for T-Mobile and are dropping all plans to $11 a month.

    Anybody else want a hit of my shrooms?

      $11/month is unlikely, but google trying to buy t-mobile isn't as crazy as it might initially sound. they could get close with cash and the wireless carriers are desperately in need of disruption. probably not this announcement though.
