Spotify has something they need to say it seems. They sent out invites for a special press briefing to be held on the 18th at 12 p.m. EST in the Big Apple. No mention of what they want to get off their chests but the rumors floating around point to them giving certain brands access to the streaming service to recommend apps and playlists. By doing this, Spotify could make their offering more tantalizing to advertisers and bring in more of that ad loot.
Not familiar with Spotify? It’s a handy app you can download to your computer and stream your favorite tunes from their massive library. They have three different tiers of memberships, each successive one delivering more features. Personally I run the free version as it gives me plenty of tasty jams to rock to while I pound away on the keyboard. Try if out, you might like it!
Once we know for sure what Spotify wants us to know, we’ll send it on to you geeks.
World Of Fourcraft Turns New York Into Real Life Boardgame.

The Big Apple is a war zone, armies march across its five boroughs waging bloody war. Times Square will be sacked, Queens will burn to the ground and Wall Street will be home to blood sucking leeches. No it’s not a new Micheal Bay film and it’s not Modern Warfare 3. Nope, it’s the newest social media experience called World of Fourcraft. The only thing real here are the leeches.
World of Fourcraft tasks users with picking a faction, their home borough, and then use FourSquare to check in around New York. Each check-in is like a Risk style soldier staking claim to the section. The app then tabulates the owners of each area, granting the faction with the most controlled spots bragging rights. As of now the 100 players have made Manhattan the winning army of the real world Middle Earth. The site itself is a rather bland affair with just a map of NYC showing the pawns in place but as the game acquires more users, it’ll probably become a bigger, prettier site. What say you geeks, yay or nay? Innovation or snooze-a-thon? Hit the jump and drop a comment or two.
