Software engineer stumbles upon code for potential music service.

According to a report in Techtree, Jeff Rose, a software Engineer and researcher was curious as to what exactly facebook was installing on his pc with their latest plug in for skype. What he found, could very well be the code that sets the stage for a music service potentially entitled ‘Vibes’
The code, which appears below found both the code for facebook’s ‘peep’ which would be the video plug in as well as the code for what can be seen as ‘vibes’. though theres no official confirmation, the second line of code which identifies a ‘musicdownloaddialog’ is quite the hint. With the launch of Google Music, no doubt the launch of this would be very soon.
if (paramString.equals(“com.facebook.peep”))
return this.window.getMember(“VideoChatPlugin”);
if (paramString.equals(“com.facebook.vibes”)) {
return this.window.getMember(“MusicDownloadDialog”);
