Google is now offering a free music streaming service for use with its Android and iOS apps. But if you really hate commercials, then you can pay a $9.99 a month fee for the ability to skip all the advertising.

The music wars keep getting hotter. So does the Google/Apple conflict which is beginning to make World War II seem like a skirmish. Google has just taken the feud to a new level with its increased competition with iTunes.
