iTunes 9.1 has iPad/iBook support

Ok, so the latest (and possibly greatest?) version of the well-known Apple software has been prepped and finely tuned for all you iPhone/iPod geeks. 

iTunes 9.1 is now packing support for iPad syncing, as well as the ability to “organize and sync books you’ve downloaded from iBooks on iPad or added to your iTunes library”.  

The file size for the update is close to a hefty 100Mb…. so, put the kettle on, sit back and let it update on it’s own.  If you’ve already done it, what do you think of it so far??  Let us know via the comments.

Spotify – A World Of Music!

Hey all,

Well, last week I found a new music application, called SPOTIFY. I’ve used Blip.FM in the past and to be honest, I thought it was going to be ‘just another music app’, but it’s actually one of the best music apps around!

Nearly every track I was after I found within seconds and as soon as I clicked play, it was streaming the music, no gaps, no stops…. nothing! 🙂

Spotify is a proprietary peer-to-peer, streaming music program that allows instant listening to specific tracks or albums with almost no buffering delay. Music can be browsed by artists, albums or created playlists as well as by direct searches. Although it is not possible to save the streamed music for use outside the application, a link is provided to allow the listener to directly purchase the material via partner retailers.

Spotify History

Spotify has been developed since 2006 by a team at Spotify AB, Stockholm, Sweden. The company Spotify was founded by Daniel Ek, former CTO of Stardoll, and Martin Lorentzon, co-founder of TradeDoubler, in Stockholm. The headquarters are located in London and research and development is located in Stockholm. Spotify currently has more than one million users.

Spotify was launched for public access on 7 October 2008. While free accounts still remained available by invitation only in order to manage the growth rate of the service, the launch meant that paid subscriptions were opened to everyone. At the same time, Spotify also announced licencing deals with many major music labels.

The first step towards opening free accounts for public without invitation was taken on 10 February 2009 when Spotify opened for free registration in the UK
