Google Enters the Ticketing Space with Cloud Printing?
At Internet week in New York this week Google Cloud Print was unveiled with Live Nation joining the press release as one of the first partners to deploy the API’s and technology that could leverage such a service.

If concert tickets never needed to be printed again until you get to the venue, will this make Print@Home Tickets obselete? It is suggested this is just another attempt to kill some of the secondary ticketing market by removing a transferable printed ticket from the equation.
“Live Nation says that they plan on using it to let people print out tickets, and promotions from a mobile app.”
Sounds like another opportunity for a “Convenience Fee” …
