I think google play music might have the worst web player of all of the streaming music services. Songs constantly stop playing, you can only control radio stations by track and there's not a good method for adding/removing content from the stations in bulk.

Mobile streaming is also of horrible quality. It's like when MP3s were new and when you would download one it would be 64 Kbps or 128 Kbps if you were lucky with a random encoder of questionable quality. Tons of artifacts, and overall just a poor experience. While I'll continue to try it out at the $7.99 price point for a bit I think the product is a bit half baked. I almost forgot to mention that supports answer for the constantly dropping music was to reload the web page and to clear the cache. Which of course doesn't actually fix the problem.

“And you need not go further than one of our stores on midnight at the end of the month. And it’s real interesting to watch, about 11 p.m., customers start to come in and shop, fill their grocery basket with basic items, baby formula, milk, bread, eggs,and continue to shop and mill about the store until midnight, when electronic — government electronic benefits cards get activated and then the checkout starts and occurs. And our sales for those first few hours on the first of the month are substantially and significantly higher.

“And if you really think about it, the only reason somebody gets out in the middle of the night and buys baby formula is that they need it, and they’ve been waiting for it. Otherwise, we are open 24 hours — come at 5 a.m., come at 7 a.m., come at 10 a.m. But if you are there at midnight, you are there for a reason.”

It's pretty amazing how little stock Google had available for the Nexus line released today. It's even more amazing that the Play store had load and processing problems once again. If any company is expected to get load issues right it's Google. #Nexus4
