We turn to Google for a lot of our online needs – email, maps of backyards and at times because we’re feeling lucky.  Now, from the company that offers its employees free haircuts (probably not the most important thing about them) comes Music Beta.  The long talked about project is ready for you to check out and, upon first glance, it’s pretty freakin’ sweet.  Upload music from your computer and you’ll be able to listen to it on any other computer or Android device.  Playlists, individual albums, it’s all there waiting for you no matter where you are (it’s a little like that Facebook friend who is always waiting to start a chat no matter where or when you hop on – but in a good way).  Even if you’re offline, you can still access the songs you’ve recently played.  The smart Instant Mix feature lets you pick one track and Music Beta by Google will customize a similar sounding playlist.  Request your invitation now.

Each set is made in Italy and comes in a stealth color exclusive to Cool Material. For all the valuable knickknacks strewn around the house or tossed haphazardly on your workbench, these boxes are ready to placate your inner organizational fiend.
