Beats Music Doubles Free Trial Period After Experiencing Launch Problems

Beats Music introduced their subscription service yesterday, which goes into direction competition with Spotify, Rdio, and other well known music streaming services. Unfortunately, the company apparently wasn’t very well prepared for such a high volume of users, which caused new registrations to go offline.

Reports started coming in last night from users who were unable to register and log on to the service. Today, CEO Ian Rogers addressed the issue with a letter updating us on the situation:

Instagram 5 adds ‘Instagram Direct’ feature

Instagram 5.0 feature, ‘Instagram Direct’, was announced and released today at their media event, ‘Share a Moment’, in New York. The idea is simple, you can now directly send images and video to select users, rather than only being able to share to everyone at once. 



Angry Birds GO! is a nice looking racing game from Rovio

Angry Birds has proven to be one of the most popular games ever created.  It’s accessible from a variety of sources, and has come out with countless versions.  For the first time since its original debut, it has done something new. Angry Birds GO! is their newest title, leaving the flick style gameplay of the old versions behind. Their new game is reminiscent of Mario Kart 64 and I couldn’t be more excited.



Spotify goes free with ads for iOS & Android tablets

Spotify announced this morning that it would allow its free streaming option to all iOS and Android tablets. Previously Spotify only allowed this feature on its desktop application, allowing users to select songs and create playlists free of charge in exchange for involuntarily listening to advertisements. The biggest question I have now, is how do I trick the Spotify application into thinking my phone is a tablet.



Chromcast now supports Plex for iOS local video playback

Google has added some much needed application support to the Chromecast, most notably Plex for iOS support. Other services added were Vevo, Songza, Red Bull TV, Post TV, Viki, RealPlayer Cloud, and apparently more.

The Chromecast came out recently and has proved to be very popular, at $35 dollars or less it’s the most affordable and elegantly delivered streaming media box experience I know of. While it’s not the most friendly device for people looking for effortless display mirroring, it’s perfect for catching up on YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu Plus.



Qualcomm’s Gimbal to compete with its customer Apple’s iBeacon for Bluetooth coupon dominance

Qualcomm is the parts supplier for Apple’s own ‘indoor positioning system’ iBeacon. As of recently QUALCOMM designed their own version, called Gimbal, and is selling devices in two different sizes.  A five-dollar model, and a ten-dollar model; the only blatant difference between the two devices is battery life.

I’m just now learning about iBeacons today, I’ve seen the word in headlines for articles and never really cared to learn more about advertising related technologies. It seems silly that Qualcomm had been designing these for Apple for a while before realizing they should probably start selling them directly to the consumer.
