Myspace Making A Comeback Maybe

Remember Myspace? No, yeah? Fewer and fewer people do. Well it’s making a comeback again or at least trying to. Myspace’s main shareholder Justin Timberlake is featured front and center on the new Myspace logon screen. Which you can do so with your Facebook and Twitter logon’s.
The site has been completely redone and is far from the Myspace we had in high school, the site boasts free unlimited music and videos. Once logged in you’ll notice it’s a pretty metro layout with an odd side scrolling view rather than up or down. You can connect to different people and hitting the discover button will take you to what’s a pretty mainstream list of artist from Bieber to Adele. It’ll be interesting to see what comes about of the new Myspace.
What could Spotify announce on the 18th?

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.
Spotify has something up its sleeves tomorrow.

Streaming music company Spotify has a super special press conference scheduled for tomorrow. The scuttlebutt is ole Spotify is opening up their massive music library to other apps in an effort to give the 2.5 million users a more fleshed out experience. It may house plenty of tunes but sometimes looking for what’s next is a mostly vague affair. Tons of tasty jams but where are they all at?
Nothing is of course official but the rumor mill is usually good at sniffing out these types of things. Those in the know have been hearing of Spotify reaching out to third party developers to get the service more user friendly. They need to shuffle more of the free users to paying users and the only way to accomplish that is to get them hooked on the better apps. Make them want to come back because right now other music streaming services are doing it but better. We’ll find out soon what’s up and let you geeks know when we do.

The big news out of Google’s event today wasn’t really a surprise as they unveiled their new Music Store. The MP3 store is fully integrated in the Android Market and will sell MP3s (300 kbps quality) to add your library. Like to window shop? There will be 90 second previews to get you interested and hopefully buy. Google was able to strike deals with 23 indie labels as well as major labels Sony Music, EMI and Universal. 8 million songs are available right now with an additional 5 million set to hit in the near future.
The music service is still free and even received an upgrade with the dropping of the beta. Music lovers can store up to 20,000 songs in the Google cloud and stream them anywhere they wish. If the songs you have match the masters Google has, you won’t have to upload them, they will instantly be added to your collection. Google+ is of course firmly intertwined with the new service, allowing users to share songs or tracks on their G+ profiles. Friends can get to listen once without being forced to leave your profile. The Music App for Android has been updated to reflect the new changes and you can grab yours here. Is this the music service you’ve been looking for? Prefer to stick it out with Amazon or Spotify? Let us know in the comments below.
