i guess owning it digitally is better than nothing?
(maybe not to some people anymore)

but some tracks might be streaming only
in the future.. then what do we do?
(legally speaking, i know we can capture and rip)

so you pay 70 bucks a year for being able to listen to music when you have a strong enough network connection or are at home on the internet? i already pay $50+/mo for my home internet plus $100 for my cell/data plan. I'm not paying any more money for content.

as i mentioned earlier .. there are many plans,
including free... i guess it depends on how much
music you listen to, and how often..

===========================
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotify
http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2010/...service-plans/

Spotify might be able to cover up to 20 hours of free listening by U.S. users per month, given its sizable war chest, in the hopes that enough customers are willing to pay to upgrade to mobile at the going rate of $10, which Rhapsody charges, or an unlimited account with ad-free listening for $5.

At that point, the major differentiators between Spotify and those services would be its excellent design and that 20 free hours of listening per month. With a free version, however, Spotify is a totally different animal. While Spotify Open offers 20 hours of free listening per month, no credit card required.

i started using it yesterday. so far there's nothing of interest from Underworld on there. just the same shit you can buy at your local shop. in fact, i haven't found a single artist with an album or single available on spotify that i don't already have and in every artist i've looked up, i've got more than spotify has to offer. the playlist sharing feature is very cool and the access to stuff i'd never download is nice but as far as the music i love goes, spotify is severely lacking. without airplay and a much, much larger database, it could never replace itunes. all apple needs to do is make their playlists more 'social' by adding sharing.

Default Re: Spotify.....

ok, i finally got in..
not too bad for the casual
listener, and a few extras
that are neat to have...

i'm just testing it on a windows
computer currently (don't have
a smartphone)..
------------------------------------
albums available are:
-----------------------------
dubnobasswithmyheadman
second toughest in the infants
beaucoup fish
a hundred days off
1992-2002
oblivion with bells
barking

ep's/singles
----------------------------------
crocodile (5 versions)
scribble (3 versions)
always loved a film (9 versions)
bird 1 (10 versions)

other
--------------------
mark knight and karl hyde - downpipe (3 versions)

spooky - schmoo (2 mixes)
bruce lee (micronauts remix)
songs of tibet
lots of edits from mix cd's

so far, it's a pretty decent selection,
and all for free with a few ads (audio
and banners)..

worth checking out..

someone will have to report on how the
streaming via phone works out.. at home
i have a fast internet connection, everything
sounds great, and is completely smooth..

the client, is decent enough..

there are a few mistakes... not putting the singles
in the right section (they are not albums), and one
weird collaboration with sky, that is totally wrong..

not sure how to go about alerting or correcting errors..

also, the search function, is basically if you know what
you are looking for.. because everything is playlist based..

unless you like sharing your playlists, and know other users
id's, you're on your own..

my id : negative1

i'm only testing out a few playlists so far,
and will see how that goes..

hey -1 - I requested an invite to test out spotify. i'm currently using rdio and have been for a while, but their underworld catalog blows for US users. spotify is priced the same as rdio - so with seeing the list of UW albums available - i'll probably switch over.

i only stream music at work and services like rdio, mog, spotify allow you to listen to new stuff without having to buy it. then i only buy what i really enjoy listening to. i'd love to just stream from my own library, however, using audiogalaxy which is the only app available doesn't always work and since my library is over 50,000 tracks, it's take a while to load everything each time, plus having to keep your computer on and logged into the internet with the audiogalaxy app running is a little lame...
