It’s no news that Amazon, Google, and Apple are all making huge efforts to keep up with each other in the various convergent markets that they are targeting as major players. But it sure is interesting to observe how each one of these tech giants is taking the necessary steps to catch up or get ahead. Today, I’m here to report on Amazon’s recently announced updates to their Cloud Player music streaming platform, updates that aren’t innovative, as we’ve seen all of them as being integrated in either Google’s Music or Apple’s iTunes. The first update that Amazon brought to…

Picture this: You’re at a friend’s party and your friend is using his/her phone to play music and to keep the party alive. You approach your friend so you can play a very cool song you’d like everyone to hear, but–yes, but–your friend is using a speaker or audio amplifier that your phone’s audio dock is not compatible with. So, you ask your friend if you can send the music file to his phone but it takes time for the file to fully transfer to your friend’s phone. Have you ever wished for an app that would allow you to…

Spotify is giving Android users something to hum about, as it brings its free radio service to Android devices in the US. This is the same unlimited free radio service that has been available on iOS devices since last month. While the radio streaming feature on Spotify Android app is available at no extra cost for premium subscribers, who are already paying a $10 monthly fee anyhow, non-subscribers can opt for the absolutely free service. The second option means the radio stream will get interrupted every now and then with ad-breaks. If you come across a song that’s worthy of…

The craze for Google’s Jelly Bean is picking up, like a storm brewing in the distance, ready to unleash its wrath just to get a taste of that currently awaited Android OS. There’s no doubt that users are willing to do anything to get it, but Jelly Bean is just not coming yet, except for some devices that have already received their update. But, one of the goodies that Jelly Bean brings is coming your way. It’s a leaked Google Music app version 4.3.605 which could probably let you taste Jelly Bean — or at least a small sweet bean….

Spotify, Pandora, Rdio and Music Unlimited. These are probably the most well-known and popular music subscription services available globally, and they are currently involved in a take no prisoners battle that can only benefit the regular music-loving tech-savvy user. But while the competition should get the best out of online music streaming, there are still a few areas where neither service has managed to reach perfection. We are talking, of course, about the still steep subscription fees and the services’ sometimes-buggy mobile apps. On the first front, there hasn’t been much movement recently and it almost seems like the competitors…

“More is always better” is a statement that seemingly holds true in the world of technology. More cores and faster processors, higher RAM, higher resolution Super LCD or AMOLED displays, bigger batteries, and more storage capacity. The capabilities of handheld devices increasingly mimic PCs, and naturally, the expectations we have from our devices have also changed over time. Just when we thought that mobile devices are finally “good enough”, things changed again. All our storage needs were moved up “to the heavens” with the introduction of cloud computing and storage. From my own experience, all my photos are on Dropbox,…

Just like many of you out there, I spend my day rushing from place to place, trying to get a thousand things done at once. Sometimes though, there’s just too much stress. So, I like to make everything better by plugging into some beloved tunes and let the music wash away all the problems. Oh yeah! Whether it’s riding the subway to work, jogging in the park, or simply chilling at home, music is arguably the best way to help us get into a good mood. If you’re the type that needs to have music on hand at all times,…
