Beyonce album Target store skip enlivens digital media war

Beyonce album Target store skip enlivens digital media war

If the fact that Target announced that they wont be carrying Beyonce's 2013 self-titled album weren't enough, the writing on the wall should be. Here we're seeing another big push in the war waged between artists, record labels, and those that would stand to lose profit at the hands of the oncoming digital revolution. While the release of Radiohead's "In Rainbows" had the record industry in a tizzy with its "pay whatever you want" model, Beyonce's "release as a surprise to iTunes first" model seems to be taking retail stores out a whole new door.

The Infinite Jukebox: Justin Bieber, tweaked, forever and ever

The Infinite Jukebox: Justin Bieber, tweaked, forever and ever

Most of us know that feeling of loving a song so much that we have it on indefinite repeat, but The Infinite Jukebox takes that to a new, algorithmically (and just plain rhythmically) brilliant level. The handiwork of Paul Lamere, the online music player takes a single track and breaks it down into beats, then links together any beats that sound particularly similar.

Ode to the Nano, V to the izzA

Ode to the Nano, V to the izzA

I was once stranded in Amsterdam for more than a week with my iPod nano and only 4 albums of music. I started the week at a Microsoft Mobius event, from which I got to visit Amsterdam coffeeshops with some fairly interesting and important people from Microsoft, Qualcomm and some of my other favorite tech blogs. After that event ended and most of my compatriots went home, I stuck around for a while to try to crash Nokia World, to which I was not actually invited or approved. In between, I had to wander the city and avoid getting into trouble.

Music in the Cloud? Hallelujah.

Music in the Cloud? Hallelujah.

I have always had a theory about music. I believe that our musical taste, more than our taste in any art form, is shaped by people we know and aspire to be like.
