Shameless Speculation: What In The Heck Are T-Mobile And Google Going To Announce On Wednesday? We Have A Guess Or Two

It seems that invitees to Google's big not-yet-officially-about-Google-Music-event have just received a second invitation - to the after party. Oh, and Maroon 5, Busta Rhymes, Dirty South, R3hab, and Drake will all be in attendance - and so will we.  We'll be watching the earlier event via livestream along with most everyone else (space is apparently very limited), but Android Police will present for the post-event-event Wednesday night, below. We're excited.

Google Sends Out 'These Go To Eleven' Event Teasers For November 16th, Is The Google Music Store Coming?

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?).

Winamp For Android Gets Updated, Now Offers Pro Version And Sync With Mac

In what seems to be its biggest update since the initial release, the Winamp team just pushed some pretty major changes to Winamp for Android. For starters, this update now allows Mac users to sync with Winamp -- something that has previously been missing. Aside from that, there is now a pro version available, offering enough new features to easily justify the $5 pricetag:

  • 10-band graphic equalizer
  • A customizable home screen
  • The ability to navigate or browse your music by Folders
  • Crossfade between tracks
  • Gapless playback
  • Support for FLAC playback in Browse by Folders nav (lossless audio playback)
  • Replay Gain Support (configurable in Settings menu)
  • Personalized SHOUTcast station recommendations (based on music in your Android device)
  • The ability to play any streaming audio URL in SHOUTcast (supported formats only)
  • Ad Free

Rumor: Google's Music Store Will Not Have Subscriptions, But It Will Have Song Sharing

Google's Music service has been an incomplete experience since its unveiling at Google I/O back in May. While Music Beta does allow you to upload your songs and stream them to your Android device, it lacks any kind of storefront. Google does have a small library of featured free tunes for Music users, but I can't say any of the albums or artists there have ever really interested me too much.

[Rumor] The New York Times Says The Google Music Store Is Almost Ready To Go

Google Music's Music Store is ready to rise from the ashes. The New York Times is claiming Google and the record companies are close to a deal to make the music store a reality. Finally, we will be afforded the privilege of paying the record companies for their music.

If you don't remember, Google Music was originally slated to launch with a music store when it came out 5 months ago, but the deals fell through.

Oh, do we have a story for you. It's a story of mystery, intrigue, and a lost prototype Nexus Prime. Yes, a lost Nexus Prime. Or Galaxy Nexus - whatever it'll end up being called.

Our story begins like any other -- with a person. Not just any person, though -- this person is special. They go by the name of Geek Vundotra, and they work for Verizon. Geek is a Verizon engineer who happens to be carrying a very special phone.

[Game Review] Musaic Box by HeroCraft Takes Hidden Object To A New Level

The same developers who brought the kitsch hit Farm Frenzy to Android have recently released what they're calling their best game ever: Musaic Box - a game that successfully combines the hidden object and puzzle genres, and adds some truly unique twists that make for a dynamic, interesting experience.

At A Glance

The very first thing I noticed about Musaic Box was the stunning visual style. The environments are clearly polished, with an astonishing level of detail, and almost everything you'd expect to be interactive actually is.

[Review] Car Tunes Makes It Easy To Keep Your Eyes On The Road While Finding The Perfect Justin Bieber Song

Every once in a while, an app comes along that revolutionizes the Android experience in an unimaginable way. More often, though, we get apps that simply regurgitate the same thing we've seen a thousand times before but with a different colored title bar or some such minor adjustment. A happy medium between the two, however, is necessary to the advancement of the platform. Perhaps the most important type of app is one that provides the functionality that we've been using the whole time but solidly improves how it is done.
