Old Zune users get ALL the new features!

50°
368w ago - From Gizmodo:

"The first generation 30GB Zune–which 1.2 million of you already purchased–is getting all the new Zune's features. All. Sure, the new Zune is more of a half step forward than a completely new design. But Microsoft's done something fantastic here by rewarding first gen buyers with cool new stuff that also happens to be free by software upgrade. And talk about spin– Microsoft just took a middling jump in hardware and turned it into a genuinely good move for loyalists (as well as a PR miracle). Are you paying attention Apple?"
 

Radiohead tells fans to pay what they want for album

50°
369w ago - Radiohead, one of the world's most influential rock bands, plans to sell its new album from its Web site as a digital download and let fans choose what they want to pay.
With music sales in decline globally for seven successive years, the industry is engaged in a debate over how best to reverse the trend.

Radiohead said its seventh studio album "In Rainbows" would be available from Radiohead.com from October 10 in MP3 format, meaning it can be played on all digital devices. In the latest twist in the move to digital music, fans can choose how much to pay, or can pay nothing if they prefer.

Very interesting concept indeed... think it will work, any fans here?
 

Random Rant (One of Two): Music and Music Teachers

Alright. Get ready for the second official Random Rant! This time we'll be talking about music and music teachers. (Post one of two. I decided that I needed to go on another rant which would make this post wayyyyyy too long.)

Now, I'm in this study hall with this really... well... annoying and stiff choir teacher. He's all into the whole choir and doing those usual tired songs that probably EVERY SINGLE CHOIR TEACHER TEACHES. Now, don't get me wrong. It's not just the choir teachers. It's the band/orchestra teacher as well. They're so obsessed with doing classical music and marches.

Most songs are priced from 89 cents to 99 cents, with more than 1 million of the 2 million songs priced at 89 cents. The top 100 best-selling songs are 89 cents, unless marked otherwise. Most albums are priced from $5.99 to $9.99. The top 100 best-selling albums are $8.99 or less, unless marked otherwise."

Makes you wonder if apple is truly serious about having DRM free media on the itunes store. Locking people in with DRM has undoubtedly helped them move ipods.
 

SpiralFrog to offer free music downloads

50°
370w ago - SpiralFrog.com, an ad-supported Web site that allows visitors to download music and videos free of charge, was scheduled to launch Monday in the U.S. and Canada after months of "beta" testing.

The music service, which has arranged to pay record companies a cut of its advertising revenue, aims to lure music fans who normally flock to online file-swapping networks to share and download music for free. The recording industry has sued thousands of computer users for doing so in recent years.

"We believe it will be a very powerful alternative to the pirate sites," said Joe Mohen, chairman and founder of New York-based SpiralFrog Inc. "With SpiralFrog you know what you're getting ... there's no threat of viruses, adware or spyware."
