Yeah, did all of that but I still don't have the button.  Maybe it takes a while to enable.  I don't have any "google friends" anyway, so it doesn't really matter :lol:

Apparently Kansas City is getting Google's new superfast interent connection.  1 Gigabit/s, "competitively priced."  Poor Greinke... he finally gets out of KC and something awesome happens there.

Biggest:

Stay in sync, without the hassle.
Spend more time listening to your music and less time managing it. Once your music is online, it's always available. Playlists are automatically kept in sync, and you don't have to worry about cables, file transfers, or running out of storage space.

Seems like it's unlimited storage.

Wow.  :PC bat signal:

Google is in the process of upgrading how users work off-line in Gmail.  In order to execute this upgrade they are phasing out their current method of working offline.  As a result, on Tuesday, May 24, the Gmail Offline Mode will no longer be available through the Chrome browser. 

The upgrade will be complete by mid June.  Once completed, you will receive a communication detailing the improved functionality. 

If you need to work offline between now and mid June, you must do so by utilizing Internet Explorer 8 (IE 8).   

This browser is already installed on your computer and easily accessible. 

If you need assistance on how to use the offline mode with IE 8 please contact the Help Desk at X-XXX-XXX-XXXX

We’re sorry for an inconvenience this may create.

It just says "songs," no specific GB limit.

There are also free songs you can add to your library based on genres when you sign up.  Free Final Countdown!!!!!!!!!!
