GOOGLE GETS INTO THE MUSIC BIZ
The tech world is buzzing this week as Google kicks off its I/O Conference, showing off a new lineup of products and online services. As the anticipation for the conference grows, early reports say that Google will launch a Google Play Store, a streaming music subscription service that rivals players like Rhapsody and Spotify. This streaming service will also get the jump on Apple, who is also trying to launch a similar product. Hesam Panahi, who teaches courses in management information systems and entrepreneurship at the Bauer College at University of Houston, is prepared to discuss how online streaming subscriptions are changing the way we get our television, movies, music and more. Panahi is also the founder of RED Labs, the university’s startup accelerator housed in Bauer College.
