Lifehacker Compares Cloud Music Services

"Having to sync all your music between devices is annoying. Luckily a number of cloud music services allow you to stream your music to nearly everything—laptops, tablets, smartphones—with minimal effort or tech know-how. Each has its strengths and weaknesses, depending on your needs; here's how to figure out which one's best for you."

Lifehacker takes a good look at the various cloud music services out there, and has a pretty balanced write-up on each of them. I do wonder, with data plans becoming more restricted in the US, and with most of the services aimed at the US market, would anyone really want to stream their music to their phones instead of just storing it on them?

Google Takes a Music Search Engine And Makes it Better

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Digital Home News" @ 06:30 AM

"The global Web search leader will provide users who want to sample a song with a pop-up box that will play at least a 30-second segment -- in some cases the entire song -- provided by iLike and Lala, which will then offer links to purchase the music."

Google has officially launched Google Music, a search engine that lets you find songs that you want. Google Music will let you search by almost anything related to music, from lyrics to the artist to the album name. You can listen to sound clips, find out more information about the artist or even buy songs through iLike or Lala. There are quite a few companies behind this new venture, though in my eagerness to test it, I found very disappointing results. This is most likely a result of that pesky issue called licensing, so for those of you in the States, how is it? The video sure does make it look pretty, but real experience is worth far more.
