Simplify Media was Bought by Google, iTunes Streaming Coming to Android

This explains a lot. Remember when everyone was bummed because Simplify Media decided to close its doors? Turns out Google acquired the company, who made some excellent (no, brilliant) streaming products for the iPhone and iPod touch. I was upset when I could no longer try out their product, but now there’s something to be really excited about. Android users will now have the ability to push iTunes media onto their handsets, which brings some a wicked complement to already great Android apps like doubleTwist. I’ll be excited to test this feature on my Droid when I can.
