Google won't launch music service

Google said it isn't looking to get into digital music sales anytime soon.
The Internet search giant used a keynote slot at the annual NARM (National Association of Recording Merchandisers) conference to quash rumors of a so-called "Gtunes" store -- much to the delight of retailers attending the confab.

"We are not going to be selling music," Chris Sacca, head of business development for Google, said in an August 3 address to music merchants and distributors during the August 2-5 event in Kissimmee, Fla.
