Oct 31st 2011 1:11PM I think that the old adage "Just because you can, doesn't mean that you should" is appropriate here.
Why on earth would you want to do this. Come on guys, serious business uses for devices require serious solutions. If a message is important enough to send to a large number of people, it is worth the effort of going over to your Mac to do the job.
Oct 27th 2011 3:30AM I am guessing that almost all of the people who think that they do not need a landline are single and certainly don't have children. They also probably use the internet >90% for checking Twitter or Facebook, rather than any serious work. We receive all of our services (TV, phone, Internet) via cable and cannot see this changing any day soon, unless the mobile operators are able to offer rock solid performance and 100Mb broadband speed. No? Thought not.
Jun 9th 2011 2:12AM I cannot believe that you are actually criticising Apple for not allowing DUI Apps on it's store. Do you condone drink-driving? Do you think the streets are safer for your children with moronic drink drivers able to avoid detection by the police? What happened to social responsibility?
Drink drivers destroy the lives of others for their own self-gratification and should be hounded off the roads and into Jail.

May 10th 2011 2:28PM Depends if these newcomers allow offline playlists or not. Spotify does, so you are not streaming music on the move, you are playing it locally, hence very little battery usage.
Prediction: Apple will purchase or enter into a strategic partnership / Joint Venture with Spotify in 2011 and all of these other minor players in music streaming (Google, Amazon etc) will withdraw their services within 2 years.
May 10th 2011 2:21PM Use Spotify for a couple of years and then tell me you prefer to sync to each device separately. I can add or delete tracks on any of my Spotify playlists from any IOS, Mac, Windows, Android etc device and they will be available the next time I turn on any of the other devices. Also able to add tracks from my home server. Yes, you can sync to your device for offline use in the background. I generally do this when I am at home and connected by wifi to a fast connection. Just select which playlists you want to access offline and use your iPhone or iPod etc the same as you would by using iTunes. It isn't streaming the music, when offline, so it isn't using up any of your mobile allowance.
May 10th 2011 2:11PM 50mps connection with Virgin and no real usage limit - no problem here in the UK. Those people who haven't tried Spotify or similar services are not really in a position to comment.
May 10th 2011 2:49AM Of course, for those of us who don't live in the US (yes, such people do exist), we have Spotify - a superb system which has the benefit of being designed by people who love and specialise in music and have had a 2 year jump start on Amazon, Google, Yahoo and Apple. It already works on IOS, Mac, Windows, Android, etc as well as being seamlessly integrated into Sonos systems and has a fantastic offline function meaning I do not use iTunes at all for music anymore (just keep it for podcasts and talking books). Oh, and they already have deals in place with most of the record labels so that musicians get a fair share of the proceeds.
May 4th 2011 12:06PM Quote from treelo: "burned by Spotify's new policy of limited listening time for free accounts"
How can you be getting burned if you aren't paying a penny for the service? On the other hand, those of us who have been Premium users from the start of Spotify are seeing the benefits of paying for the service being constantly eroded. Spotify needs to add functionality for it's paying customers, as we are the ones which are subsidising the rest of you. How about scrapping the stupid limit of 3 devices for offline syncing, for a start? Alternatively, we should get a number of downloads for free, as we do with Napster.
