Google recently had their annual developers’ conference, Google I/O, where they released a large number of updates. One of the largest, the Nexus Q devices, promises much in the aspect of social media sharing. So what does that even mean? First, take a look at the video. Ok, so you see this device serves as the conduit between your mobile devices (tablet, Smartphone, etc) and your home speakers (tv, stereo, etc). So what about schools? I can see this in school music classes, events, where the need to share music comes in handy.
The only question is how the recording industry, RIAA, MPAA, etc will feel about this. Also, if used in schools, what types of performance rights will be needed. Hopefully Google will work this out, as it does hold a lot of promise!
