Google Music Beta vs. Spotify

Google Music Beta vs. Spotify

Tweet Google Music Beta is a cloud-based music locker service that lets you store up to 20,000 tracks for free. You can then play back your music either via a Flash-enabled webpage or an Android smartphone app. The Android app includes an offline option to store local copies of your songs. I’ve been using Google Music Beta for the past couple of weeks, putting it through its paces and comparing how it handles versus Spotify. Overall [...]
Spotify Mobile Faceoff: iPhone vs. Android

Spotify Mobile Faceoff: iPhone vs. Android

Tweet Spotify Mobile on iPhone and Android are both reasonably mature apps now, having been launched simultaneously back in September 2009. At the time, the Android version had a slight edge in terms of features, with its unique ability to Sync Over 3G, a What’s New area, and most crucially the ability to play in the background. But the iPhone version seemed to take priority at Spotify and within a few months it had caught up then taken [...]
My Top 10 Favourite Podcasts

My Top 10 Favourite Podcasts

Tweet I have my HTC Desire wired up to listen to in the car when I’m commuting to and from work each day. I’m often not in the mood for music until later on in the day, so to keep me entertained I subscribed to a selection of podcasts (a podcast is a kind of radio show you can subscribe and listen to whenever you want). I was initially overwhelmed at the sheer volume, variety, and quality of podcasts out there: most bad, some [...]

The Pansentient League’s Guide to the Galaxy Tab

Tweet I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab at the weekend and have now had a couple of days playing around with it. I wanted a tablet mostly to replace my Eee PC netbook, which I’d use for browsing and tweeting while watching TV or lounging about in bed. I bought an unlocked Galaxy Tab for £499 from my local Phones 4U store. It doesn’t need a SIM card so I didn’t have to take out any kind of contract: this makes it essentially [...]
Spotify + Chrome = Awesome Launcher for Android!

Spotify + Chrome = Awesome Launcher for Android!

Tweet Here’s a short video demonstrating how to select a band name from a webpage on your PC then launch some tunes on Spotify for Android. I use this at work where I can’t run Spotify on the desktop, but can listen to it on my Android smartphone instead. The video shows the Google Chrome web browser, the Spotify Chome extension, and the Google Chrome to Phone extension.    
Spotify’s Friends & Enemies (UPDATED)

Spotify’s Friends & Enemies (UPDATED)

Tweet They love me, they love me not… here’s a graphic showing Spotify’s friends and partners (on the left) versus their “enemies” and competitors (on the right). According to CNET, Apple are actively trying to dissuade the American record labels from signing up with Spotify. Google may also turn out to be a Spotify competitor/killer, and Microsoft too (despite Daniel Ek and Steve Ballmer’s recent [...]
Spotify Add-ons for Google Chrome

Spotify Add-ons for Google Chrome

Tweet Google has just released version 6 of its Chrome browser, with a focus on improved speed and simplicity. Much like Firefox, a steadily growing list of extensions and add-ons is enhancing and expanding the Chrome experience on a daily basis. There are already several great Chrome add-ons for Spotify, and in many ways they’re better and more varied than the Spotify Add-ons for Firefox we covered the other day. Here then is a complete  [...]
