Spotify Premium with Hulu

アメリカのSpotifyが、有料プラン「Spotify Premium」アップグレードで、アメリカのHuluサービスが利用できる「Spotify Premium with Hulu」キャンペーンを実施すると発表しています。

米国Huluは、5.99ドル/月の有料サービスですが、Spotify Premiumに加入すると、通常は提供されていないHuluの広告表示付きプランに加入することができるようになります。

キャンペーン期間は、2019年6月10日までとなっています。

キャンペーン期間終了後のSpotify Premium with Hulプランは、9.99ドル/月から12.99ドル/月に変更されるそうです。

All Stars Fall by Rachel Van Dyken

I love cross over series and All Stars Fall did not disappoint it was everything I expect from this author and a cross over read.
Penelope left Cunningham Falls, Montana to start over because she needed a fresh start but the last thing she expected was to meet a rock star that she crushed over in her youth. After a chance meeting Penny seemed to fall into the job as part time nanny for rocker Trevor Wood and his adorable children and as she settles in at Seaside she realises there is no place else she would rather be.
Trevor Wood’s is getting over a messy divorce and he is trying to bring his twin 6 year old boys and his 4 year old little girl as normal as is possible when you have a rock star as a father could Penny be the perfect mix for his family or will lines be crossed and ruin it all........
I loved this book, I loved the characters, the wonderful and adorable kids as well as the swoon worthy rockers all had me sighing for different reasons. This story stole a piece of my heart and I’m really not sure I will ever get it back, what a fantastic read All Stars Fall was and you need to read it......

Soaring for Fallon by Kristen Proby

Fallon was happy moving from place to place she has never has a reason to stay in one place well that was until she arrived in Cunningham Falls and she started making friends. Noah runs the local animal sanctuary and when Fallon comes across an injured eagle it’s Noah who turns up to take care of the bird. Two people not looking for anything become friends and friendship soon turns into so much more, have Fallon and Noah found a match made in heaven could the two people not looking for a relationship found one with each other guess you need to read the book to find out.....
Soaring with Fallon is a beautifully written love story with wonderful characters who you can’t help falling in love with. I loved the honesty in this book, the friendships and the love the residents of Cunningham Falls have for each other. Can’t wait for more in the Big Sky Series.

Wicked Force by Saywer Bennett



I was so excited for this Crossover Collection and Wicked Force was exactly what I was expecting, this book from Sawyer Bennett was the perfect tie-in between Wicked Horse Vegas and Big Sky and it was great to be in Cunningham Falls with characters I loved. It’s hard to write a review without spoilers and I really don’t want to ruin it for any readers so I’m just going to tell you how this intense forbidden love story made me feel. I loved the sizzling chemistry and I loved watching Kynan and Joselyn grow as they tried to fight the attraction they had for each other, I swooned and I sighed and I was so happy to see this couple get the HEA they so deserved. Another great read from this very talented author and I can’t wait to see where she takes us next. 





All Stars Fall by Rachel Van Dyken

After his ex-wife leaves them, rockstar Trevor Wood uproots his life and his children moving to Seaside, Oregon. 

A chance meeting with Penelope in a coffee shop has Trevor convincing her to interview to be his childrens’ part time nanny. 

After the NDA is signed, Penny realises that she may have signed up for more than she can handle.  

Penny is great with the children and they are just too cute. The characters were easy to relate to and totally likeable. Trevor is an awesome single dad and the relationship he has with his children was heart warming.  

The chemistry between Trevor and Penny is intense and I loved how it blossomed into so much more.    

All Stars Fall is well written and kept me engaged from the first to the last chapter. 

Wicked Force by Sawyer Bennett


I have read the previous books in the Wicked Horse Vegas series and Wicked Force has all the passion and fire that we have come to expect.
I have been intrigued by British Kynan since he was first mentioned in the series. Now the 26 year old alpha male has taken an assignment as a bodyguard protecting rising singer Joslyn.
This book was well written and exciting to read, emotional and at times intense as Kynan McGrath and Joslyn Meyers struggle to ignore their feelings and chemistry.
I really loved these characters and was intrigued as Sawyer Bennett delved into their characters. I was glued to the book from start to finish and I didn’t want it to end. 
Wicked Force gives us an insight into Kynan and Joslyn’s story and I cannot wait for their story to continue in Code Name: Genesis (Jameson Force Security #1) to see how Ms. Bennett concludes their story.

          The end of formal business attire?      Cache   Translate Page      
#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

While the suit may previously have been declared dead by fashion's forecasters, then resurrected for the umpteenth time on catwalks everywhere, formal business attire has been left somewhat to fend for its own merit.

This week Goldman Sachs, the oracle of investment banking, sent an internal memo to its employees stating it was loosening its approach to office attire, moving to “a firmwide flexible dress code” and asking employees to “dress in a manner that is consistent with your clients’ expectations.”

The announcement comes nearly three years after J.P. Morgan sent a similar memo to its staff in June 2016, stating business casual dress would be expanded "firmwide," which "reflects how the way JP Morgan works is changing."

What does business attire mean in 2019?

If we look at the wardrobe choices of successful CEO's, there is a discrepancy between types of businesses and the level formality their directors emanate, a precedent set by Apple's founder Steve Jobs in his nominative black turtle neck and jeans combo.

Silicon Valley and tech start ups tend to embrace casual styles with little regard for formalities or tailoring - see Mark Zuckerberg in a staple of grey t-shirts, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek in his preferred ensemble of graphic tee, jeans and sneakers - these looks are a far cry from the wardrobe choices by those in legal, banking or political professions.

A suit and tie means business, or does it?

A suit and tie once stood for serious business, it spoke of respect and hierarchy and propagated success. Being the best dressed depicted power and sartorial one-upmanship. Even today, people prefer their politicians and bankers to dress formally in time-honoured suits (could you imagine Theresa May negotiating Brexit in yoga pants?) yet these expectations are not extended to those operating in creative professions, where a suit and tie is largely deemed "too corporate."

At Paris fashion week, buyers and designers embraced the looks of fashion and brands au courant, whereas the MD's, CEO's and investors could be seen in suits. Even at PFW, the money guys embraced old-school uniforms, uninterested in the casualisation of dressing norms, and keen to define their roles with a more conservative wardrobe style.

Comfort over style

A shift in cultural buying habits has seen the suit outcasted as a uniform since casual codes and streetwear began to dominate the zeitgeist. Many favour comfort over style, and are happy to abandon neckties and other restrictive clothing items since corporations loosened their dress code requirements.

At Goldman Sachs, the updated dress code is officially business casual, but this spans a wide arena of possibilities, tinged with quiet expectation. Pinstripe suiting teamed with a red tie and brogues may not be necessary for Mondays at the office, where perhaps a chino, sweater and casual jacket could suffice. But client-facing and boardroom attire comes with its own rules and judgements as to what is appropriate and expected. Unless, of course, if you're Mark Zuckerberg.

Yep, you read that right. Spotify and Hulu. Spotify today rolled out a new bundle that's almost too darn good to pass up. For $9.99 a month you'll get Spotify Premium — and Hulu's basic level of ad-supported service. Spotify if employing some serious FOMO here, though, artificially limiting the number of folks who will be able to take advantage of this deal. How many until we hit a cap? That's unknown.

          [Track of The Day] Weyes Blood - Everyday      Cache   Translate Page      
Américaine de 31 ans, Natalie Mering est plus connue (ou est en passe de l'être) sous le nom de Weyes Blood, son projet musical qui devrait prendre une nouvelle ampleur avec sa signature chez Sub Pop.

Car après deux derniers disques - découverts récemment - plaisants mais ayant du mal à tenir la longueur, le label américain l'accueille en effet pour son nouvel album, 'Titanic Rising' (à la jolie pochette). Et le moins que l'on puisse dire, c'est que les deux premières chansons dévoilées sont très prometteuses, surtout Everyday (en écoute ce jour).

Une chanson orchestrale, baroque, ambitieuse et délicieusement rétro (bonjour les années 60 ou plus près de nous The Magic Theatre), pleine de chœurs et de « pa papadam papadam » à chanter à tue-tête. En tous points enchanteur.

Album : Titanic Rising

Sam France, le chanteur du duo, explique la genèse de 'Seeing Other People' dans un long et intéressant post. Car contrairement à ce que pourrait faire penser le titre, aucune séparation de Foxygen n'est au programme. Ils n'ont pas besoin de voir d'autres personnes. Non, ils ont juste vieilli. Ont dit au revoir à leurs vingt ans. Aux drogues. Aux tournées. Et bonjour au temps qui passe.

L'album s’appellera 'Seeing Other People' et a envoyé en éclaireur un premier single, Livin' a Lie, qui se démarque une nouvelle fois de ce qu'ils ont fait par le passé. Une chanson très mélancolique et qui promet une nouvelle fois de belles aventures, résumées ainsi par Sam France : « It sounds like your dad's favorite recording artist circa 1985 sneaking off to the studio bathroom for a hit of blow ». Ah quel groupe...

Yep, you read that right. Spotify and Hulu. Spotify today rolled out a new bundle that's almost too darn good to pass up. For $9.99 a month you'll get Spotify Premium — and Hulu's basic level of ad-supported service. Spotify if employing some serious FOMO here, though, artificially limiting the number of folks who will be able to take advantage of this deal. How many until we hit a cap? That's unknown. But one way or another this deal runs out on June 10, so figure it's a decent number. Why mess with Spotify Premium when you can get plenty of music through the free version? For one, you get more tracks. And you also get offline access, no ads, unlimited skins, and higher-quality audio. And now you'll also get Hulu. Some fine print: This is available for new Spotify Premium subscribers as well as those who already have Premium. (If you're a new sub, you'll get a free month of both Spotify and Hulu, then start paying $9.99.) And if you're paying $12.99 from last year's b...

Gomorra is a passionate DJ and producer from Basel, Switzerland. As an 8 year old boy playing the drums he realised that music might play a bigger role in his future life. After a while, he got his hands on the first pair of turntables and started to experiment with mixing HipHop music. Experiencing a broad variety of music and nightlife culture during those formative years he developed a deeper interest for driving rhythms and repetitive patterns. Soon he got pulled into the pulsating scene that emerged nearly 30 years ago in an industrial and rough urban area at the shore of lake Michigan well known as Detroit, the Motor City. As he already made his first steps in music production while digging HipHop, the obvious development then was to exchange the MPC with Synths and Drum Machines and explore the aesthetics of Techno on a much more profound level.

Apple tiene pensado rediseñar miles de carátulas en Apple Music, y está contratando a artistas para ello#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

La clave para que un servicio de música en streaming predomine sobre otro es la diferenciación. Y es que en un mundo donde el catálogo de música es prácticamente el mismo, la única solución pasa por ofrecer características extra. En Apple Music han encontrado una interesante formad e aumentar dicha diferenciación: carátulas exclusivas creadas por grandes artistas.

Ae6f2b34 9214 441b A6e7 Ce7e8ea21856 Algunas de las carátulas creadas específicamente para Apple Music.

Según un informe publicado por The Verge, la compañía de Cupertino está creando carátulas exclusivas para sus principales listas de reproducción en Apple Music. Lo interesante de todo esto es que no se trata simplemente de carátulas generalizadas como tenemos ahora, sino específicamente pensadas y con diseños únicos para cada lista de reproducción. Es más, parece ser que Apple incluso está contratando a grandes artistas y diseñadores para ello, como a los creadores del emblemático logo de AC/DC.

Rachel Newman, directora global de editorial de Apple, comentó para The Verge lo siguiente:

La carátula está destinada a conectar directamente con las comunidades y la cultura a la que se pretendía llegar. En muchos sentidos, es una representación visual de la música que encontrarás dentro de esa lista de reproducción.

La idea que se trata de transmitir aquí es que la música no solamente comunica por sonido, sino también visualmente. Y no le falta razón, la carátula puede ser el mensaje y de hecho transmite mucho más que el propio nombre de una lista o las canciones que vas a encontrar dentro de ella. Contratar a artistas de renombre sólo para esta tarea de diseño es, desde luego, respetable.

A3f101d9 Bcea 4692 B588 994881db69fe

Actualmente Apple Music tiene como máximo competidor a Spotify. La gran apuesta de Spotify en los últimos meses parece ser el podcast, preparando contenido exclusivo y una mayor integración dentro del reproductor. Por su parte Apple Music sigue centrándose en ofrecer una mayor integración en las plataformas de Apple y detalles como el de las carátulas que acabamos de ver. Actualmente ya ha superado los 56 millones de usuarios de pago.

She’s done several Opera productions in CCP, in Singapore, even in the US, Germany, Italy and other European countries. She will be launching her own album under the same label and slowly fulfilling her dreams. Follow Star Music channels for more updates about her.

МУЗЫКАЛЬНЫЕ СЕРВИСЫ

3996605_Kartinka_152 (245x245, 95Kb)

Музыка окончательно ушла в стриминг, и потоковых сервисов сейчас уже столько, что понять, чем они вообще отличаются друг от друга, бывает довольно сложно. Мы протестировали крупнейшие из официально доступных в России платформ и делимся своими выводами.

YouTube Music

Начнем с самого «свежего» стримингового сервиса, недавно заработавшего в России. Когда Google только представила YouTube Music, его концепция сразу показалась мне перспективной. Музыка ушла не только в стриминг — но и в YouTube; многие артисты забросили стандарт «сингл — клип на сингл — альбом» и предпочитают выпускать песни по одной, зато снимая дорогое видео на каждую. В России самый яркий тому пример — «Ленинград».

Да и по разнообразию музыкального контента YouTube с большим отрывом обгоняет iTunes. И этот контент зачастую уникален: например, записи с большинства концертов и кавер-версии известных песен нигде кроме, как на YouTube вы найти не сможете (разве что в «Вконтакте», но об этом позже»).

И вот теперь, спустя несколько месяцев, YouTube Music официально заработал в России.

Приложение разбито на три вкладки: «Главная», «Хотлист» и «Библиотека».

На «Главной» размещаются подборки, рекомендуемые вам клипы, песни и другой «витринный» контент. «Хотлист» — это список популярной в данный момент музыки на YouTube, так что если вы хотите держать руку на пульсе современной музыкальной индустрии — вам сюда. Ну и «Библиотека» — это центр управления именно вашей любимой музыкой: здесь можно составлять плейлисты, управлять своими предпочтениями и так далее.

Поиск в YouTube Music реализован довольно удобно — это что-то среднее между обычными сервисами вроде Apple Music и, собственно, YouTube. Вбив название исполнителя, вы получите не только возможность перейти к его дискографии, но и на страничку со всеми его клипами.

В плане видеовозможностей YouTube Music на голову обходит любой другой стриминговый сервис.

Самое главное — запустив клип, вы одной кнопкой можете отключить картинку, оставив только трек, и заблокировать смартфон — воспроизведение при этом не остановится.

Однако у этой концепции есть и свои недостатки. Весь музыкальный или околомузыкальный контент, который вы будете «лайкать» на YouTube тут же попадет в раздел «Понравившиеся композиции» в приложении. Даже если это не песня, а, скажем, вокальный кавер или разбор нового альбома какой-нибудь группы. В итоге со временем он превращается в настоящий бардак, где найти что-нибудь становится довольно проблематично.

Другая претензия — не всегда стабильное качество аудио. Большая часть композиций звучит сравнимо с сервисами конкурентов, но иногда треки запускаются в таком виде, словно кто-то пять раз подряд перегнал их из 64 килобит в 320 и обратно.

Стоимость подписки — 169 рублей, первый месяц бесплатен. Примечательно, что подписчики сервиса автоматически получают подписку и на Google Play Music.

Стоит подписаться:Если вы обожаете смотреть клипы, регулярно ищете музыкальный контент на YouTube, любите слушать музыкальные каверы и живые выступления исполнителей.

Не стоит подписываться: Если вы ищете «традиционный» музыкальный сервис с продвинутой системой рекомендаций и удобной базой треков в стабильно хорошем качестве.

 

«Яндекс. Музыка»

«Яндекс. Музыка» — это, пожалуй, лучший на сегодняшний день вариант для прослушивания музыки в России через браузер. Главная причина — десктопная версия сервиса бесплатна. Ограничения, по сути, всего два: каждые 5-6 песен вам придется прослушать непропускаемую рекламу, а качество звука уступает тому, чем довольствуются платные подписчики (192 кбит\сек вместо максимальных для MP3 320 кбит\сек). Оба не столь существенны: рекламные вставки редко длятся больше десяти-пятнадцати секунд, а потому не утомляют, а если у вас нет хорошего ЦАПа и наушников, звучание песен вас устроит и в бесплатной версии.

Но даже в таком виде веб-версия «Яндекс. Музыки» — отличнейший стриминговый сервис, особенно если вы слушаете в основном отечественную музыку. На главной странице сайта регулярно появляются новые тематические плейлисты, составленные вручную сотрудниками «Яндекса», там же можно послушать самые популярные треки в СНГ и новые альбомы известных исполнителей, открыть для себя новый жанр (знаете ли вы, например, что такое регтайм?) или выбрать подборку под настроение.

Подборки составлены с умом — один человек из нашей редакции перешел на «Яндекс. Музыку» с Apple Music именно из-за их разнообразия.

Похвалы заслуживает и плеер: в нем можно посмотреть текст играющей песни и даже подкрутить звучание с помощью эквалайзера. Несмотря на то, что мой основной стриминговый сервис — Apple Music, на работе, слушая музыку через ПК, я пользуюсь именно «Яндекс. Музыкой». Гораздо удобнее просто открыть браузер, чем возиться с iTunes.

Что касается мобильного приложения, то его функционал бережно перенесен из полной версии, но для того, чтобы им пользоваться, необходимо подписаться на сервис. Цена вопроса — 149 рублей, первые три месяца бесплатны.

Минуса у сервиса два и для некоторых они могут быть критичными: новые релизы на «ЯМ» зачастую появляются чуть-чуть позже, чем в том же сервисе Apple, а сама библиотека не столь обширна.

В ней, например, может не быть некоторых альбомов даже известных исполнителей — особенно если те вышли до запуска сервиса. Так, например, в библиотеке отсутствуют ранние работы Arctic Monkeys и большая часть релизов Rammstein. Поэтому если вы музыкальный маньяк, привыкший слушать новые релизы групп точно в день их выхода или предпочитаете в основном зарубежную независимую и андеграунд-сцену, вам не сюда.

В остальном же — «Яндексу» удалось создать достойного конкурента крупнейшим стриминговым сервисам.

Стоит подписаться: если вы в основном слушаете музыку с компьютера на работе, любите музыкальные подборки и предпочитаете российскую сцену.

Не рекомендуем: если хотите слушать самые свежие релизы первыми, любите узнавать артистов целыми дискографиями и хотите самую обширную музыкальную библиотеку на рынке.

 

Apple Music

Наравне со Spotify — самый популярный музыкальный сервис в мире. Причина на самом деле проста — Apple Music по умолчанию встроен в приложение «Музыка», доступное в каждом iPhone. Оно очень плотно интегрировано в экосистему Apple, работает и с Siri, и, например, в iMessage, а потому для владельцев «яблочного» смартфона остается, пожалуй, самым удобным стриминговым сервисом из доступных.

На этом плюсы Apple Music не заканчиваются. Здесь одна из самых больших музыкальных библиотек (если не считать коллекцию лайвов, каверов и любительских записей на YouTube) среди всех стриминговых сервисов. Все, что есть в iTunes, есть и в AM.

Иногда бывают ситуации, когда какой-нибудь из артистов по тем или иным причинам решает не выкладывать (например, Beyonce и, эпизодически, Kanye West) в Apple Music свой новый альбом, но случаются они крайне редко.

Сервис рекомендаций новой музыки на основе ваших предпочтений работает довольно точно, а подборки составляются редакторами вручную, поэтому в них зачастую можно найти много интересного. В этом плане смущают разве что хит-парады по жанрам. Например, в «рок»-секции можно найти, например, Imagine Dragons или что-нибудь из нового Panic at the Disco! , которые к рок-музыке имеют очень отдаленное отношение. Впрочем, это лишь придирка.

Доступны и тексты песен, и скачивание треков оффлайн. До редизайна сервиса в iOS 11 я бы обязательно вынес в минусы совершенно непотребный интерфейс, но в прошлом году Apple здорово переработала его, и теперь пользоваться приложением стало относительно удобно.

Мои две главные претензии к сервису — отсутствие веб-версии (на компьютере им можно пользоваться только через iTunes) и не самое лучшее приложение на Android. В остальном — все очень хорошо.

В порядке и качество звучания: многие недоброжелатели пеняют на не самый высокий битрейт — 256 кбит/сек, но стоит понимать, что сервис стримит файлы в формате AAC, а не mp3. AAC — более современный и продвинутый формат сжатия, поэтому 256 кбит вообще ничем не уступают максимально возможным в mp3 320 килобитам.

Стоимость подписки по меркам Apple удивительно щадящая — 169 рублей в месяц. Есть возможность оформить семейный или студенческий аккаунт — и сэкономить еще.

Стоит подписаться: если вы пользователь iPhone и Mac. В этом случае Apple Music станет для вас практически идеальным вариантом, лишенным существенных минусов.

Не рекомендуем: если у вас Android-смартфон и привыкли слушать музыку через веб-браузер.

 

Google Play Music

Еще один стриминговый сервис Google, который, по слухам, уже к концу года будет закрыт, а всех его активных подписчиков перенесут в YouTube Music. Если так, то немного жаль. Ведь если сначала GPM представлял собой просто одну большую музыкальную коллекцию, из которой можно было стримить треки по запросу, да включать радиостанции по жанрам и артистам, то со временем он наполнился и подборками, и рекомендациями и чартами. В общем, все стало, «как у людей».

Каких-либо уникальных особенностей, как и критических недостатков у Google Play Music нет, это просто хороший стриминговый сервис со всеми вытекающими. А еще он по умолчанию есть практически во всех Android-смартфонах, что в плане доступности делает его прямым конкурентом Apple Music.

Стоимость подписки — 169 рублей в месяц. Есть веб-версия, возможность оффлайн-прослушивания, а музыкальная коллекция если и уступает той, что есть в сервисе Apple, то незначительно. Бесплатно ничего слушать не дадут, зато можно оформить тридцатидневный пробный период.

В общем, приятный и грамотный стриминговый сервис. Разве что подборки здесь не столь разнообразные, как у той же «Яндекс. Музыки» или Apple Music.

Стоит подписываться: если вы пользуетесь в основном Android-устройствами.

Не рекомендуем: если вы любите параллельно с прослушиванием читать тексты песен — здесь такой возможности нет и любите подборки, составленные редакторами. Или если у вас iPhone.

 

Deezer

Французский Deezer нельзя назвать безумно популярным, а вот безумно интересным — запросто.

Во-первых, это единственный официально доступный в России стриминговый сервис, в котором можно слушать Hi-Res Audio.

За эту возможность нужно доплачивать (339 рублей в месяц вместо стандартных 169) и она недоступна в приложении для смартфонов — но если у вас есть хорошая акустика и вы предпочитаете слушать музыку в Flac, — вам только сюда. Да, есть еще Tidal, но в этом материале мы говорим о сервисах, официально доступных в России.

Обычная подписка, с mp3-музыкой, стоит стандартные 169 рублей в месяц и за эти деньги вы получаете доступ к 53 миллионам композиций — это, на минуточку, больше, чем у Apple Music.

Есть и бесплатная версия — даже для мобильных устройств. Ограничений, как водится, несколько: реклама между песнями, невозможность слушать песни оффлайн, меньший битрейт и ограниченное количество пропусков. Все более-менее стандартно, в общем.

В Deezer есть плейлисты, составленные редакторами вручную, есть и уникальный контент вроде живых выступлений в студии сервиса или подборок от самих музыкантов, но главная киллер-фича здесь — это персонализированный плейлист Flow.

По сути это микс из треков ваших любимых групп и песен, которые должны понравиться вам по мнению Deezer. И на мой взгляд это самая продвинутая система рекомендации музыки — даже Spotify промахивается с предложениями чаще (хотя, справедливости ради, шведский сервис предлагает куда менее известных исполнителей). Чем больше вы слушаете Deezer и чем больше лайкаете музыки, тем точнее будет работать Flow, и уже через пару дней система заработает так, что вы вообще не будете проматывать композиции.

Еще один жирный плюс — Deezer есть вообще на всех крупных платформах: iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, в виде веб-версии и даже приложения для Apple Watch. Удобно.

Ну и пара мелочей: в песни вшиты тексты песен, и строчки подсвечиваются на экране в тот момент, когда их пропевает исполнитель. А еще можно загружать в библиотеку свои mp3-файлы и регулировать звучание в эквалайзере

Стоит подписаться: если честно, бесплатную версию Deezer я рекомендую попробовать всем — уж больно хорош Flow. А там уже решите сами.

Не рекомендуем: Если вы обожаете редакторские подборки — здесь они не столько разнообразны, или вам важны социальные функции.

 

Boom

Честно говоря, расписывать здесь особенно нечего: подписываться на Boom стоит только в том случае, если вы намертво прикипели к своей многотысячной музыкальной библиотеке в «Вконтакте». А все потому, что в мобильной версии приложения для этой социальной сети фоновое прослушивание музыки ограничено драконовскими тридцатью минутами. Хотите слушать больше — либо не блокируйте смартфон и не сворачивайте программу, либо платите за подписку.

Самое обидное, что подписка не решает главной проблемы музыки в «Вконтакте». Заплатив деньги, вы все равно можете получать сообщения о том, что тот или иной трек изъят из публичного доступа по запросу правообладателя, что просто жутко, невероятно бесит.

При этом полнцоенным стриминговым сервисом-то Boom назвать можно с большой натяжкой. Поиск альбомов реализован очень странно, и чаще всего вы найдете лишь плейлист, созданный авторами фанатских пабликов известных групп. В правильном ли порядке там будут треки, в нормальном ли качестве — тут уж как повезет.

Невероятный бардак всегда был главной проблемой музыки в «ВК», и Boom эту проблему не решает вовсе. Да еще и просит за этот бардак денег.

Исключения составляют разве что подборки свежих релизов, попадающих на главную приложения. Там-то как раз проблем нет: нажал на альбом, получил доступ к песням. Всегда бы так.

Стоит подписаться: если вы хотите слушать бережно составленную за годы использования «ВК» библиотеку аудиозаписей. Или что-то из бездны социальной сети, чего нет больше нигде.

Не рекомендуем: Если вы не слушаете музыку в «Вконтакте», лучше пройти мимо и подписаться на что-нибудь другое. Сразу почувствуете разницу.

          RACó MUSICAL: Neix Trobasons, el web que reuneix tota la música en occità      Cache   Translate Page      

Trobasons és una proposta inèdita a la xarxa que té com a objectiu indexar tots els músics i bandes que utilitzen o han utilitzat l’occità com a llengua de producció artística. En el moment d’inici, el projecte compta amb més de 100 grups, més de 300 àlbums i més de 3.000 cançons, tot i que aquestes xifres encara augmentaran de manera significativa en les properes setmanes.

Es tracta d'un projecte ideat i liderat per l’equip responsable de Viasona. En aquests 10 anys en actiu de Viasona, el projecte ha conviscut amb una realitat molt propera: la de la Val d'Aran, un territori del Principat amb una llengua pròpia, vinculada a una àrea històrica que abasta 15 milions de persones. Tota una realitat que no ha tingut cabuda a Viasona, en tant no ser en llengua catalana, però que ara ha trobat el seu espai.

Amb l'experiència i know how en el camp de la indexació de material musical adquirida amb Viasona, i amb el suport del Departament de Política Lingüística de la Generalitat de Catalunya, s'ha creat un web, catalogat per artista, disc i cançons, tota la producció musical en occità, sense importar la procedència nacional ni la llengua materna dels seus artistes. Lletres de cançons, per a llegir, entendre i aprendre a cantar el què s'està escoltant, a més d'àudios i vídeos (agregats des de plataformes legals com Youtube, Spotify o Deezer, entre d’altres), i facilitant la compra de les mateixes a través de les principals botigues digitals (iTunes, Amazon, Google Music).
 
Per fer-ho, s’ha dut a terme una tasca de documentació llarga i intensa, que un cop digitalitzada, i amb la incorporació dels nous treballs que es vagin editant, permet que tota aquesta informació es mantingui per sempre més accessible per tothom de manera fàcil i gratuïta.

La posada en marxa d’aquest projecte vol servir d’estímul a artistes per a produir en occità, i de retruc, al poble aranès per a conèixer la riquesa de la producció musical. A més, amb una eina com Trobasons es pretén contribuir a la promoció i divulgació de la música en occità i esdevenir una plataforma per donar visibilitat als diferents projectes.

          YouTube Music and YouTube Premium make their long-awaited debut in India      Cache   Translate Page      
YouTube's ad-free music and video streaming services are now available in India. 2019 is turning out to be a great year for streaming services in India. Spotify made its debut in the country at the end of last month, and Google has now launched YouTube Music and YouTube Premium. YouTube saw a meteoric rise in usage from India over the last three years as low-cost 4G services became widely available across the country. YouTube Music in itself costs just ₹99 a month ($1.42), but you get the service for free when you subscribe to YouTube Premium, which is ₹129 ($1.70) a month. If you subscribe to Google Play Music, you get free access to YouTube Music as well. YouTube Music: Everything you need to know YouTube Music is a full-fledged streaming platform that lets you subscribe to your favorite artists, listen to full albums, and choose radio stations based on the kind of music you listen to.

          [Track of The Day] Orouni - Son of Mystery      Cache   Translate Page      
Plus souvent j'aurais aimé parlé ici du projet de Rémi Antoni et de sa joyeuse confrérie Orouni. Mais à chaque fois, je n'ai pas pris le temps, alors que le groupe le mérite. Essayons donc de rattraper un peu de retard en évoquant le premier extrait de leur nouvel album à venir (le quatrième), 'Partitions', qui verra le jour le 19 avril prochain.

Le morceau s'appelle Son of Mystery et raconte l'histoire, je cite, « du musicien Slim Gaillard (qui a joué avec Charlie Parker, Miles Davis et Dizzy Gillespie), aperçu dans On The Road (Jack Kerouac) et inventeur du mot Orouni ». Une chanson joliment racontée (et psychotropement résumée dans son clip, voir plus bas), tout en finesse : une belle mélodie, un rythme plutôt mid-tempo, qui voit Orouni l'habiller de ses pièces instrumentales avec un touché certain (l'arrivée feutrée de la flûte sur la fin de la chanson est d'une justesse folle). Sacré teasing.

Album : Partitions

With a new single, a thirst for success, and a passion for country music, Danielle Todd is putting together the start of a big year in 2019. The Guelph, ON, native’s first single, Crazy, has been picking up love and support from radio, online outlets and fans since its late January release. On Spotify and YouTube, the streaming numbers are climbing, and 50,000 plays is just around the corner. And with one listen, it’s clear that we want more from Danielle Todd. Crazy is a catchy track that shows off her voice and has some fun with that helpless feeling of falling in love that we know so well in country songs. And to top it all off, it’s the kind of song that you […]

One Good Thing: The ol' standby: the sun is shining, the sky is blue. Maybe this is what should go on my tombstone, sort of my mantra as I go whistling past the graveyards in life.
One Funny Thing: The MFM podcast, and The Dollop podcast, which caused a bladder emergency from over-laughing earlier this week.
One Weird Thing: I'm really failing at basic life stuff lately: laundry, cleaning, calling people back, grocery shopping. Is this how "normal" people do life?

One God Thing: Advent this year. Totally where I'm at. Haven't even opened the closet with Xmas decorations. I did get a roll of wrapping paper out to get prezzies ready for the Greats, and then I got them directly into the mail, but that's the full extent of my Holiday Plan. Oh, wait, I asked Sparky what he wants. The reply: oil filter, oil, and jeans. Adulting hitting hard this year for both of us.
One Music Thing: Why, even with hundreds of radio stations, can I never find one that doesn't piss me off inside of 10 minutes for assorted reasons? Spotify has ruined me forever.
One Book Thing: I'm reading Eddie Izzard's autobio right now. It's oddly much less raucous fun, and more like reading the life story of someone you used to know in college or whatever. Comforting. Clever, too, of course, and funny, but also quite British in the sense that I feel a little removed from the "plot."

One Funny Thing: I've watched more M*A*S*H episodes in the last 6 weeks than I have in 30+ years. They aren't "funny" per se but they're like a comfy blanket and warm socks on a cold day.
One Weird Thing: Now that I'm "officially" diabetic, my eyesight seems to have stabilized for the first time in my life. Yesterday's appointment showed no changes to my Rx since last year and not much change in the year prior to that. Yay.

One God Thing: 'For “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” That word is the good news that was announced to you.' (Peter 1:24-25)
One Music Thing: It's been BeeGees week this week: on the drive home from Milwaukee the other day, I hit them twice on different XM stations. Then at work on Spotify shuffle Thursday. And on XM again twice on Thursday and Friday. And yesterday at the eye doctor.
Yes, I do still know all the words.
One Book Thing: I'm enmeshed in two very British books, one taking place in the past, the other in a steampunk alternative present (which has elements of historical stuff). Both take place near Oxford as well. I'm confused. I need to finish one or t'other of them and move on to random mysteries again. Somehow, those are easier for me to differentiate, although sometimes the werewolves from one series bleed into the fallen angels from another. [I read weird books lol]

One Good Thing: It's Friday. In the real world, that means a restful weekend. In my world, that means four hours of driving to visit Beast over the next two days, unsnarling more medical and legal issues, working 3.5 hours on Sunday and a missing the Packer game. I guess it's good to be busy, right?
One Funny Thing: I got nothin'.
One Weird Thing: I haven't cried in days. I need to cry; I can feel it, like when you need to use the bathroom in a place where there are no bathrooms to use. It's not painful yet, but it could get there. And I just can't cry.

One God Thing: "Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me."  Psalm 51:12
One Music Thing: Jim Croce just came on Spotify (at work) singing "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song" and ... yeah:
Yeah, I know it's kind of strange
Every time I'm near you
I just run out of things to say
I know you'd understand

One Funny Thing: Funny-in-the-weird-sense: how Milwaukee continues to be a major part of my life. This was reinforced yet again this week.
One Weird Thing: Oops. Weirdness abounds. Like how the ventilator sounds like a clown car when it goes off.

One God Thing: I'm doing a lot of FROG this week, because what choice do I have?
One Music Thing: I think I will get Spotify back on today and listen to Styx again with Beast. Maybe he'll participate this time....
One Book Thing: I can't read in Beast's room because I have to destroy/clean everything I touch while I'm in there because of C. diff.. I'm reading him magazines and I may snag a People or something from the shop for myself today. I'm still wading through the book on the OED here at home, though.

          Novedades de Chrome 73: modo oscuro, soporte para teclas multimedia y mejoras para las PWA       Cache   Translate Page      

Novedades de Chrome 73: modo oscuro, soporte para teclas multimedia y mejoras para las PWA #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Vamos a contarte cuáles son las novedades de Chrome 73, la nueva versión del navegador lanzada hoy oficialmente por Google tal y como nos lo han contado los compañeros de Genbeta. Los titulares se los lleva el nuevo modo oscuro automático para macOS, pero también hay otras novedades que conviene tener en cuenta.

Por ejemplo, Google ha implementado soporte para las teclas multimedia de que tienen algunos teclados, la posibilidad de usar Aplicaciones Web Progresivas en macOS, y ventanas flotantes en ellas. También hay algunas novedades para Android e iOS, además de las clásicas soluciones de bugs y problemas de cualquier otra versión.

Modo oscuro para macOS, y pronto para Windows

El modo oscuro de Chrome llevaba semanas acercándose con sus pruebas en Canary o el tema oficial para usar su aspecto, pero finalmente llega de una manera bastante interesante. Eso sí, de momento parece que sólo está funcionando en las versiones para macOS Mojave para adaptarse al tema que haya en el sistema operativo.

El funcionamiento es el siguiente, si tienes activado el modo oscuro de macOS, Chrome se adaptará automáticamente para utilizar también el mismo modo. Este es el que vimos en el tema que ya puedes descargar, y utiliza los mismos colores que ves en la sesión de incógnito del navegador. Para activar el modo oscuro en macOS, simplemente debes ir a Preferencias del Sistema > General, y en la parte superior seleccionar el "Aspecto" que quieras utilizar.

Soporte para las teclas multimedia de tu teclado

Muchos teclados incluyen teclas multimedia, accesos directos para controlar la reproducción musical o de vídeo del ordenador que pueden ser botón de Play/Pausa, para avanzar o retroceder en las pistas o ajustar el volumen. Hasta ahora Chrome ignoraba estas teclas, pero ahora ha pasado a soportarlas como ya hacen los propios sistemas operativos u otras aplicaciones como Spotify o VLC.

De esta manera, si en el navegador estás reproduciendo un elemento multimedia y pulsas por ejemplo el botón de pausa, el elemento quedará pausado, y si pulsas el botón de "Play" volverá a reproducirse. Esta compatibilidad también servirá tanto si Chrome está en primer plano o en segundo plano. En Chrome OS, podrás pausar y continuar reproducciones en Chrome, las aplicaciones de Chrome y las de Android.

Soporte para "Picture in Picture" en vídeos de PWA

Otra de las novedades de esta nueva versión es el hecho de que Chrome añade en el escritorio soporte al modo Picture in Picture para las [Aplicaciones Web Progresivas](PWA](https://www.xataka.com/basics/que-es-una-aplicacion-web-progresiva-o-pwa). Se trata de un modo con el que vas a poder desplazarte por una de estas aplicaciones o una web sin perder de vista un vídeo que estés viendo, ya que se transforma en una ventana flotante que puedes mover a la posición que quieras.

Esta ventana se mantendrá siempre visible mientras haces otras cosas. Con ello, por poner un ejemplo, podrás mirar aplicaciones o pestañas mientras estás en una videoconferencia sin perder de vista lo que se está haciendo o diciendo en ella.

PWA para macOS

Además de los vídeos, Google también ha dicho que sigue mejorando la experiencia de las Aplicaciones Web Progresivas haciéndolas compatibles con macOS. Google lleva bastantes versiones del navegador ofreciendo mejoras con esta tecnología, que busca que puedas utilizar aplicaciones web como si fueran aplicaciones nativas.

Al añadir el soporte para macOS, ya podemos decir que Chrome ya permite utilizar las PWA en todos los principales sistemas operativos, como Windows, GNU/Linux, macOS, ChromeOS, pero también en móviles Android e iOS.

Un poquito más de privacidad

Google también ha mejorado las opciones de sincronización de datos de Chrome. Con ello, puedes elegir de forma más sencilla qué información quieres compartir con la empresa y acceder a ella desde cualquier dispositivo, ya que toda estará unida y centralizada.

Mejoras para iOS y Android

Lite Pages

Los sistemas operativos móviles también han recibido alguna novedad. Por ejemplo, Android ahora tiene sugerencias en la Dino Page para poder leer artículos sugeridos cuando se esté offline. Además, también se estrena la característica Lite Pages, que es la función del ahorro de datos que deja de cargar las imágenes y vídeos de una página web, optimizándolas para conexiones lentas.

En iOS si los formularios no se completan automáticamente, ahora puedes tocar los iconos sobre el teclado y acceder a tus contraseñas, direcciones e información de tarjetas guardas para agilizar procesos. También se actualiza la lista de motores por defecto para que puedas elegir tu favorito.

          Spotify demanda a Apple en Europa por "limitar intencionadamente las opciones y ahogar la innovación"       Cache   Translate Page      

Spotify demanda a Apple en Europa por

Daniel Ek, CEO de Spotify, anunciaba en una entrada en el blog oficial de la empresa que había interpuesto una demanda ante la Comisión Europea en contra de Apple. Spotify compite en iOS con el propio servicio de Apple, pero lo hace según Ek en desigualdad de condiciones.

Acusa a la empresa de Cueprtino de aprovechar su posición de privilegio para limitar la innovación y la competitividad, y en Spotify incluso han creado un sitio web detallando todas las técnicas de Apple para cambiar las reglas del juego.

Apple es juez y parte

El sitio web, llamado "Time to Play Fair" ("Es la hora de jugar limpio") muestra cómo Apple "le niega a los consumidores la capacidad de elección real" o "impone una tasa del 30% discriminatoria" a sus competidores para poner en ventaja sus propios servicios.

Spoti2

Esa tasa provoca que cuando Spotify la paga, tiene que "inflar artificialmente" sus precios, que acaban siendo más altos de los de Apple Music. Y si no lo hace, Apple aplica "un conjunto de restricciones técnicas" que limitan la experiencia de Spotify y la vuelven inferior.

Este tipo de medidas hacen que las acciones de Apple violen la ley según Spotify, ya que la competitividad "no funciona a menos que todos tengan una oportunidad justa" para luchar en ese mercado.

Esta es la primera vez que una demanda de este tipo contra la App Store sale a la luz en la Unión Europea. La tienda de Apple impone una tasa del 30% del precio de las compras en la App Store, y del 15% en el caso de las suscripciones después del primer año. Los portavoces de la Comisión Europea ya están investigando el caso según The Wall Street Journal.

'Spotify has filed a complaint against Apple with the European Commission (EC), the regulatory body responsible for keeping competition fair and nondiscriminatory.' From Daniel EK, CEO of Spotify My goal for Spotify is and has always been to reimagine the audio experience by giving consumers the best creativity and innovation we have to offer. For that to be a reality, it is my firm belief that companies like ours must operate in an ecosystem in which fair competition is not only encouraged, but guaranteed. It's why, after careful consideration, Spotify has filed a complaint against Apple with the European Commission (EC), the regulatory body responsible for keeping competition fair and nondiscriminatory. In recent years, Apple has introduced rules to the App Store that purposely limit choice and stifle innovation at the expense of the user experience—essentially acting as both a player and referee to deliberately disadvantage other app developers.

          Spotify declara la guerra a Apple con una demanda ante la Comisión Europea      Cache   Translate Page      
Hasta ahora era solo un rumor que corría por la industria musical digital, pero la guerra entre Spotify y Apple ya es una realidad. La plataforma sueca de música en streaming ha anunciado que demandará a la multinacional fundada por Steve Jobs ante la Comisión Europea, por la presunta imposición de restricciones que favorecerían al fabricante de iPhone. Según Spotify, Apple habría introducido normas en la App Store que limitan el poder de elección, favoreciendo intencionadamente a su propia plataforma de música. Apple compite con otras plataformas de streaming a través de sus propios servicios, pero según el comunicado de Spotify, lo hace «limitando intencionadamente las posibilidades de elección, actuando como jugador y árbitro para perjudicar deliberadamente a otros desarrolladores de aplicaciones». De esta forma, Apple puede obligar a Spotify y otros servicios digitales a pagar un 30% de recargo sobre las compras realizadas a través de su sistema de pagos, incluyendo los que son necesarios para suscribirse a su servicio premium. «El pago de esta tasa nos obligaría a inflar artificialmente el precio de la suscripción premium muy por encima del precio de Apple Music. Y para mantener nuestro precio competitivo para nuestros clientes, eso no es algo que podemos hacer», explica Daniel Ek, consejero delegado de Spotify, que también ha señalado que Apple no cobra este 30% a las compras realizadas desde aplicaciones con las que no compite en otros sectores, como Uber o Deliveroo. Desde Spotify aseguran que la compañía fue presionada para utilizar el sistema de compras mencionado en 2014, lo que les obligó a subir el precio del servicio premium desde 9,99 a 12,99 euros, casualmente en el mismo momento en que se lanzó Apple Music con suscripciones a 9,99 uros. En respuesta a esta situación, Spotify dejó de usar el sistema de Apple, con el consiguiente perjuicio para los suscriptores que escuchaban música a través de un iPhone, ya que solo podían actualizar su suscripción a través del ordenador. Esto provocó que otras funcionalidades, como el reconocedor de voz Siri o el HomePo (el altavoz inteligente de Apple) dejaran de funcionar con la aplicación de Spotify instalada en iPhones. Además, Spotify acusa a Apple de enviar notificaciones promocionales sobre su servicio de streaming musical que el resto de competidores tiene prohibido lanzar. En una conferencia de prensa, Daniel Ek ha asegurado que la compañía ha intentado resolver este problema directamente con Apple sin éxito, y por eso ahora piden «a la Comisión Europea que tome las acciones necesarias para asegurar la libre competencia», incide el cofundador de Spotify.

Tim Cook angry sad

  • Spotify has gone to war against Apple in Europe, complaining that the way it runs its App Store is anti-competitive.
  • It's a bold move for a company whose market cap is 32 times smaller than Apple's.
  • But Spotify has bloodied Apple's nose before when it circumvented App Store fees.
  • It's bad news for Apple that some of its most popular app makers keep challenging the App Store's economics.
  • Spotify's complaint comes as there's never been greater political will to regulate big tech firms.

Spotify has gone to war against Apple, filing a legal complaint with European antitrust authorities over what it claims is anti-competitive behaviour.

Spotify's beef is about the 30% fee that Apple charges on App Store subscriptions. Apple makes life extremely difficult for services that try and avoid that fee, Spotify argues, meaning the company will have to raise its prices to account for the levy.

That would make Spotify more expensive than Apple's in-house streaming service, Apple Music, which doesn't have to pay the same 30% levy. That, Spotify says, is anti-competitive behaviour because Apple wins either way. You can read more about the complaint here.

Read more: Spotify is going to war with Apple, filing an antitrust complaint over fears it is crushing competitors

Fighting Apple is a bold move, given Spotify is a comparative minnow.

The Swedish service operates a single business — music streaming — while Apple is a major player covering mobile, the cloud, media and entertainment, and computing. Apple, with a market cap of $853 billion, is 32 times more valuable than Spotify, with its $26 billion market cap.

With this in mind, it is hard to see that Apple will be overly worried about the complaint. Indeed, it is yet to even comment on the proceedings filed with the European Commission.

But that is only when the complaint is viewed in isolation. It should worry Apple that some of the biggest and most popular app makers are willing to challenge the economics of the App Store, which CEO Tim Cook keeps billing as a driver of Apple's future growth.

App makers like Netflix are challenging App Store fees

Apple is suffering from peak iPhone and must look to its services division for continued growth. That includes businesses like iCloud, the App Store, and Apple Music.

But that growth faces a challenge if popular third-party developers keep challenging the App Store's main source of revenue — its 30% levy. And there are indications that Apple will feel the pain.

Take the example of Netflix.

The streaming service is the biggest app maker to date to circumvent App Store billing, asking iPad and iPhone users to pay for its subscription service through its site rather than through Apple.

According to Sensor Tower data, Netflix is the top-grossing app for Apple in the US and the billing change could deprive the iPhone maker of as much as $256 million a year in subscription fees. The Netflix move was widely seen as a blow to Apple's narrative that its services division would be the driver of future revenue.

We also know that Apple will already be feeling the impact from Spotify pulling a similar stunt a few years ago.

Spotify used to make Apple an awful lot of money

Look at these two side-by-side charts from Sensor Tower.

They show that Spotify was Apple's top-grossing app both in the US and globally in November 2015.

Sensor Tower Spotify Apple 2015

2015 is an important date in this dogfight — it was the last year Spotify billed every premium subscriber through iTunes, meaning it paid up to 30% of all subscription fees to Apple. The upshot was that Spotify was incredibly lucrative for Apple.

That changed in 2016, when Spotify wouldn't allow new app users on iPhone or iPad upgrade to its paid Premium service through iTunes. Instead, it directed people to its website. That meant it could keep subscription revenue for itself, instead of handing a chunk over to Apple.

The impact was immediate, as shown by the Nomura chart below. The graph compares how much revenue Spotify and Netflix make through the App Store. Look at the red line denoting Spotify — and what happened in 2016 when the firm altered its billing process. You can see there's a big dropoff:

Nomura Spotify Netflix chart

That's a pretty sharp decline! We can see from the grey line that the dropoff for Netflix will be even more severe.

Both Spotify and Netflix through their separate actions have paved the way for other big app makers, who have to fork out lots of money to Apple, to also take a stand.

We've seen a similar story with Google, where the maker of "Fortnite" decided to circumvent Google's Play Store for the Android release.

Can Apple just keep creating its own competing services?

One answer to all of the above, of course, is that Apple has built its own perfectly serviceable music streaming service which is gaining in popularity. It is also about to launch a Netflix competitor.

As it currently stands, Apple wins if both Spotify and Netflix have reduced access to the App Store, because that would drive more people to download and subscribe to Apple Music. As Spotify's CEO acknowledged in his statement on Apple, the App Store is the "gateway" to the internet for the billion people who own an iOS device. It's a huge marketing tool for any app developer.

Apple can't mimic every popular app that decides to avoid the App Store levy though, not least because the regulators might step in. And there has never been greater appetite to regulate the major Silicon Valley firms, both in the Europe and the US.

Given the political risk, it might just be easier to bow before this minnow after all.

***** Interview with Fine Cult *****


Q: When did Fine Cult begin? Tell us about the history...
LW: Fine Cult began posting as such on SoundCloud last summer in 2018, but I was experimenting in 2017 with nothing but an iPhone, GarageBand, and a tiny interface. It wasn't until last year that I was able to pull together all my influences and drive, and churn it into something pleasing to the ear. The start to record was I think a matter of time, technology, and persuasion to get serious about the craft. Also, there's been an incredible amount of personal goings-on over the past three to four years that just drove me to have to express in one way or another.

Q: Who are your influences?
LW: Bands all over the place and time. Lush, Slowdive, St. Etienne stuff, The Cure, Siouxsie, Wire, XTC, but also Kraftwerk, The Pink Dots, Renegade Soundwave, industrial acts as well.

Q: Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
LW: Impossible, but I'll take to the grave:
The Cure's 'Pornography,'
Love & Rockets' 'Express,'
The Tear Garden's 'Tired Eyes Slowly Burning,'
Wire's 'A Bell Is A Cup...,'
and OMD's 'Crush.'

Q: How do you feel playing live?
LW: Funny because I've recently thrown together a relatively decent pedalboard with eight or nine pedals. I have a Vox AC15 and Marshall Origins 50w both taking up space and collecting dust in the apartment. I think what I'm doing is planning ahead for inevitable gig but haven't taken that leap yet. My focus for now is high quality recording, and possible soundtrack work down the road.


Q: How do you describe Fine Cult´s sounds?
LW: The signature Fine Cult tone is a mix of Post-punk beats with almost always a drone of harmonics/reverb/flange guitar at some intensity or another in the background. It reminds me of being inside a jet engine, or in a wind tunnel or wavy beach sounds. I tend to use bass lines as much as a six string guitar to give enough lead to carry songs forward. My goal with Fine Cult is not to force anything down the listener's brain. I make music you can either stop the world and focus heavy into it with a pair of headphones, or you can put Fine Cult on while you have your buddies over on the back patio for beers and a bonfire. A friend of mine says she likes to listen to it when she's driving on the road. It's often soundtracky (in a good way) and repetitive (also in a good way), and the lyrics are intentionally minimal -- just to conjure up pictures for the audience.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
LW: I find some time at night and start 99% of the time with a rhythm guitar line in any particular key and bpm. The songs grow from there. In the past five or six years I've picked up mostly Fender electrics and they inspire me in one direction or another from the beginning of a sound. Some tracks take weeks and weeks to grow all of the layers, where others I've nailed out in one or two sessions. Vocals are always the last piece.

Q: Which new bands do you recommend?
LW: I can tell you who I'm listening to now. Anna Calvi, FTR (aka Futures), The Soft Moon, and Wooden Shjips.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
LW: The B-52's or OMD.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
LW: Keep crafting out new material. I'm going to work harder when time allows it to get Fine Cult up on Spotify and farther into the grid -- YouTube, etc.. A photographer friend in northern Indiana is working with me on cover art moving ahead. The first physical release from Fine Cult are coming out soon in a very limited cassette release of the 'White Glasses' EP through CustomMadeMusic.com out of Virginia.

Q: Any parting words?
Yah, keep tuning in to Bandcamp and Facebook to see what's the latest. Most new and older Fine Cult demos can be heard still at the SoundCloud page before eventually going into either the trash can, or post-production!

          Spotify Files Complaint Against Apple With European Regulators Over 'Unfair' App Store Practices      Cache   Translate Page      
Spotify has filed a complaint against Apple with the European Commission, accusing the iPhone maker of enforcing App Store rules that "purposely limit choice and stifle innovation at the expense of the user experience" and "acting as both a player and referee to deliberately disadvantage other app developers."


In a blog post, Spotify founder and CEO Daniel Ek took particular issue with Apple charging a 30 percent "tax" on App Store purchases. This results in Spotify charging existing subscribers $12.99 per month for its Premium plan via the App Store just to collect nearly the $9.99 per month it charges normally.

Ek believes this gives Apple an "unfair advantage," since Spotify is unable to fairly compete with Apple Music's standard $9.99 per month price within the App Store. This is a big deal given there are over a billion active iOS devices.

As an alternative, if Spotify chooses not to collect payments via the App Store, Ek notes that Apple "applies a series of technical and experience-limiting restrictions" on the company. Over time, this has also included "locking Spotify and other competitors out of Apple services such as Siri, HomePod, and Apple Watch."


Ek stresses that this is "not a Spotify-versus-Apple issue" and simply about seeking "the same fair rules for companies young and old, large and small."

Apps like Uber and Deliveroo, for example, are allowed to collect payments directly from customers since they offer "goods or services that will be consumed outside of the app," according to Apple's App Store guidelines. Unlike Spotify, this allows these apps to bypass Apple's 30 percent commission.

Ek summarized what he is asking for into three points:
  • "First, apps should be able to compete fairly on the merits, and not based on who owns the App Store. We should all be subject to the same fair set of rules and restrictions—including Apple Music."
  • "Second, consumers should have a real choice of payment systems, and not be 'locked in' or forced to use systems with discriminatory tariffs such as Apple's."
  • "Finally, app stores should not be allowed to control the communications between services and users, including placing unfair restrictions on marketing and promotions that benefit consumers."
Ek notes that Spotify tried "unsuccessfully" to resolve the issues directly with Apple, leading to its carefully considered complaint with the European Commission. Spotify is based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Spotify has launched a "Time To Play Fair" website and shared a companion video to inform customers about its complaint.

          Spotify beschuldigt Apple van oneerlijke concurrentie, klacht bij EU      Cache   Translate Page      

Spotify heeft een klacht ingediend bij de Europese Commissie tegen Apple. Het Zweedse bedrijf vindt dat het wordt benadeeld door de maker van iOS-apparaten.

In een blog op de website van Spotify schrijft topman Daniel Ek dat Apple de afgelopen jaren "regels heeft geïntroduceerd die het aantal opties en innovaties beperkt ten koste van de gebruiker". Ek zegt dat zijn bedrijf hier de afgelopen tijd met Apple over heeft gesproken, maar dat heeft tot niets geleid.

30 procent afdragen

Spotify heeft onder meer moeite met wat de 'Apple-taks' wordt genoemd. Diensten die via de App Store abonnementen willen aanbieden moeten 30 procent van de gegenereerde inkomsten afdragen. Dit is voor Apple de afgelopen jaren uitgegroeid tot een flinke inkomstenbron en belangrijk geworden in de strategie van het Californische bedrijf.

Als we dit doorvoeren zijn we gedwongen om onze abonnementsprijs hoger te maken van die van Apple Music, zegt Ek. Dat wil hij niet, omdat Spotify dan minder interessant is voor klanten (je kunt om deze reden via de iOS-apps niet upgraden naar een betaald abonnement).

"Omdat we niet in Apples betaalsysteem zitten, beperkt het bedrijf onder meer onze communicatie met klanten. In sommige gevallen is het ons niet eens toegestaan om klanten die Apple-apparaten gebruiken te mailen."

Ook de Nederlandse online kiosk Blendle heeft last van de 'Apple-taks', zegt topman Alexander Klöpping tegen de NOS. Volgens hem levert het afdragen geen nieuwe gebruikers op, anders had hij er niet zoveel moeite mee gehad.

"In feite is het een soort iPhone-belasting die aan Blendle (en dus uiteindelijk de consument) wordt doorberekend." Hij noemt de stap van Spotify moedig, omdat sommige bedrijven wellicht bang zijn benadeeld te worden door Apple. Blendle overweegt zich bij de klacht van Spotify aan te sluiten.

Al langer overhoop

Spotify en Apple liggen al jaren juridisch overhoop over dit punt. In 2016 stuurde de muziekdienst Apple een brief waarin het bedrijf zorgen uitte over het blokkeren van een app-update van Spotify. Apple eiste volgens die brief dat Spotify gebruik ging maken van Apples abonnementensysteem als het "nieuwe gebruikers wil aantrekken en abonnementen wil verkopen".

Daarnaast zegt Ek dat Apple voor Spotify de mogelijkheid blokkeert om gebruik te maken van Siri (Apples slimme assistent), de HomePod (slimme speaker) en de Apple Watch.

"We vragen niet om een speciale behandeling", zegt Ek. "We willen enkel dezelfde behandeling als andere partijen in de App Store zoals Deliveroo en Uber." Tegelijkertijd met de blogpost heeft het bedrijf ook een site gelanceerd: TimeToPlayFair.com, waar het meer informatie biedt over de zaak tegen Apple.

"Dit gaat een ding worden en dat is terecht", zegt Stefan Kulk. Hij doet bij de Universiteit Utrecht onderzoek naar de macht van techplatforms. "Dit soort partijen zijn zo machtig dat ze eisen kunnen stellen." Hij verwacht dat als het tot een zaak komt bij de Europese Commissie deze gedragsveranderingen van Apple kan eisen, bijvoorbeeld omtrent de afdracht.

Veranderingen

Spotify heeft drie eisen. Het wil dat iedere app wordt gehouden aan dezelfde regels "inclusief Apple Music". Ook wil Ek dat klanten zelf kunnen bepalen hoe ze betalen voor het abonnement. Als laatste vindt het bedrijf dat appwinkels niet de controle mogen hebben over communicatie tussen gebruikers en app. De strijd van de muziekdienst is specifiek op Apple gericht, maar concurrent Google vraagt ook 30 procent. Een woordvoerder van Spotify in Nederland kan niet zeggen waarom er niks over Google wordt gezegd.

Netflix worstelt ook al een tijdje met de App Store-belasting en besloot eind vorig jaar dergelijke abonnementen niet meer aan te bieden via de App Store. Klanten worden naar de site van de videodienst geleid. Ek noemt de videodienst niet in zijn verhaal.

Een woordvoerder van de Europese Commissie heeft aan The Wall Street Journal bevestigd dat ze de klacht hebben ontvangen maar geven verder geen inhoudelijk commentaar. Apple wil nog niet inhoudelijk reageren en komt naar verwachting later vandaag met een verklaring.

Todo lo que sabemos del evento de Apple este 25 de marzo#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000\

Apple ha enviado invitaciones a su evento del próximo 25 de marzo. ¿Qué se presentará? esto es todo lo que sabemos.

Apple ha anunciado su evento del próximo 25 de marzo que se celebrará en el teatro Steve Jobs, parte del nuevo campus de la compañía, bautizado como Apple Park, la misma sede donde se han presentado nuevos iPhones y nuevos Apple Watch loa últimos años.

Hipertextual estará en Cupertino cubriendo el evento en directo, el cual ha causado bastante expectativa por su fecha y por lo que se podría llegar a presentar. Por un lado, está la plataforma de cine y televisión en la que llevan trabajando años, pero también todos los productos de hardware que se deben renovar. En marzo del año pasado, la compañía hizo una pequeña presentación en Chicago donde renovó el iPad de 9,7 pulgadas y agregó el soporte del Apple Pencil, por lo que toca la salida del modelo 2019. Igualmente, los rumores indican que también se lanzaría un iPod touch con nuevo diseño y una nueva generación de iPad mini.

En paralelo, Apple ha retrasado una y otra vez la salida del AirPower, la alfombrilla de recarga inalámbrica multidispositivo. Sin olvidar una nueva versión de AirPods, uno de los productos más populares en la historia de la compañía.

Hay muchas posibilidades y la naturaleza del mismo ha causado confusión. Esto es todo lo que esperamos del evento del próximo 25 de marzo en el Apple Park:

Plataforma de series y películas de Apple

Animación de la invitación al evento de Apple

La propia invitación deja bastante claro el foco del evento: la plataforma de películas y series, en la cual llevan trabajando años con un presupuesto de inversión intenso para producir contenido original y decenas de acuerdos con directores, creadores y actores de primer nivel.

A medida que se acerca el día del anuncio y se filtran más detalles una cosa va quedando clara: se parecerá más a una oferta multicanales, con contenido de diferentes cadenas que a Netflix. Para nuestra audiencia latinoamericana es como un servicio de TV por cable ofrecido por Apple, para nuestra audiencia española: similar a lo que Movistar TV ofrece.

Apple pretende apoyarse en tres pilares que lo harán muy diferencial:

  1. Tecnología / sistema operativo / interfaz gráfica / experiencia de usuario: la mayoría —en realidad todos— los servicios de televisión por cable o plataformas de operadoras para contenido audiovisual funcionan peor que mal, son lentos, difíciles de operar y poco útiles. Un servicio de contenidos audiovisuales en el Apple TV o en un iPad, Mac o iPhone, totalmente nativo y diseñado por la compañía garantizaría una experiencia muy superior.
  2. Millones de personas con Apple ID y su tarjeta de crédito activa: cada una de las personas que han comprado una app, que tienen activo Apple Music o una suscripción de iCloud podrían activar la nueva plataforma presionando un botón, sin tener que volver a confirmar número de tarjeta o datos de facturación. Potencialmente arrancarían con una base de usuarios envidiable.
  3. Contenido original: Apple está trabajando en una amplia línea de contenidos originales muy orientados a poder ser disfrutados en familia, haciendo acuerdos con productores, actores y directores de muy alto nivel. El objetivo: tener éxitos que solo puedan ser vistos contratando el servicio.

Nuevo Apple News con suscripciones

Semanas atrás se filtró que Apple está intentando convencer a algunos medios de comunicación generalistas de mucho peso para que adopten la plataforma de la compañía. Su idea es que a través de esta se puedan vender suscripciones.

De la misma forma que una persona puede suscribirse a servicios en apps, podría contratar una suscripción mensual o anual a un medio o revista digital. Se haría por medio de la integración de Texture, que funcionaba como un "Spotify para revistas", la cual Apple adquirió en 2018.

El problema es que, según informó en su momento Wall Street Journal, la compañía está pidiendo un 50% de la suscripción a los medios que usen su plataforma. Para muchos, un porcentaje muy alto.

Una tarjeta de crédito de Apple

Según Bloomberg, Apple estaría trabajando junto a Goldman Sachs en su propia tarjeta de crédito que funciona —como es de esperar— por medio de Apple Pay. Periodistas económicos estarían siendo invitados al evento.

De ser así, muy probablemente funcione únicamente en Estados Unidos, pero Apple está haciendo esfuerzos muy grandes para que la división de servicios crezca a ritmos mayores. Actualmente, la compañía se queda con un pequeño porcentaje de cada operación que se hace con Apple Pay, pero al tener su propia tarjeta de crédito obtendrían más ganancias por cada pago que se haga. Sería, por tanto, una forma directa de incrementar ingresos.

No es seguro: AirPower y AirPods

El reporte original publicado por *Buzzfeed News aseguraba que el evento se enfocaría al 100% en servicios, es decir, todo lo anterior. Eso relegaría cualquier lanzamiento de nuevo hardware a una nota de prensa, pero cabe la posibilidad de que, sobre todo por el éxito que tienen, se anuncie la nueva versión de AirPods con el AirPower, la alfombrilla de carga inalámbrica multidispositivos.

¿Por qué se anuncian en conjunto? Los nuevos AirPods mantendrían diseño y autonomía, pero ganarían la posibilidad de cargarse de forma inalámbrica e invocar a Siri sin tener que tocar dos veces en el auricular.

Los AirPods con nuevo diseño, de diadema y posiblemente cancelación de ruido activa, serían presentados en septiembre junto a nuevos iPhones y nuevo Apple Watch. Aunque ahora mismo muchos relacionamos la función de los auriculares al smartphone, donde realmente brillan es cuando se usan en conjunto con el smartwatch; seguramente Apple seguirá empujando por ese lado.

No es seguro: iPad 9,7", iPad mini y iPod touch

Ming-Chi Kuo adelantó el lanzamiento del nuevo iPad mini y el iPod touch durante primavera de 2019 y sacarlos junto a la nueva versión del iPad económico de 9,7 pulgadas tiene sentido. Sobre todo si se venden a precios sumamente atractivos que hagan crecer la base instalada de dispositivos con iOS, lo cual tiene ganancias derivadas inmensas.

A Apple, sobre todo ahora que planean lanzar la plataforma de series y películas, le conviene tener una base de dispositivos activos lo más amplia posible, de tal forma que, aunque ganen menos con el hardware, obtengan muchos más ingresos por medio de servicios derivados.

Es por eso que incrementar la oferta de dispositivos con una estrategia de venta con precios más agresivos es fundamental para los planes de la compañía en los siguientes años. iPads baratos o un iPod touch para videojuegos móviles (¡Fortnite!) es una forma interesantísima de lograr dicho incremento de esa base activa.

Pero no es seguro que se presente. Tal vez se anuncien el 25, pero brevemente o por medio de una nota de prensa lanzada al acabar el evento.

Music service files complaint with European commission over subscription ‘tax’

Spotify has filed a complaint with European regulators arguing that Apple limits choice and competition in its app store, giving its own music streaming service an unfair advantage over rivals.

Apple’s app store is an important distribution platform for Spotify. But Apple takes a 30% commission on all sales made through the app store – including music streaming subscriptions – which Spotify and many other third-party app developers have long complained is an unfair “tax”.

I’ve been waiting years for this. Bigger companies have finally had enough of Apple’s 30% in-app purchase tax. Spotify founder Daniel Ek writes about Apple’s restrictions on telling users how to upgrade to Spotify Premium outside the app:

As an alternative, if we choose not to use Apple’s payment system, forgoing the charge, Apple then applies a series of technical and experience-limiting restrictions on Spotify. For example, they limit our communication with our customers—including our outreach beyond the app. In some cases, we aren’t even allowed to send emails to our customers who use Apple. Apple also routinely blocks our experience-enhancing upgrades.

Spotify has a companion site TimeToPlayFair.com with more details, and they’ve also filed a complaint against Apple with the European Commission. (As a side note, I hope Spotify’s pursuit of fairness will also apply to how they treat the podcast ecosystem after acquiring Gimlet Media and Anchor.)

Apple’s anti-competitive behavior was also a theme of Ben Thompson’s Stratechery this week:

What is even more striking, though, is that the App Store does have a massive antitrust problem: it is not Apple unfairly competing with app developers, it is Apple unfairly imposing massive complexity and extracting 30% of revenue with its contractual requirement, enforced by App Review, that developers use Apple’s payment mechanism.

Now if only more indie developers would speak out about this, maybe we’d make some progress with Apple. As I’ve said many times: 15% for paid downloads and in-app purchase is reasonable for the value that Apple provides. Just as importantly, Apple should relax the rules against linking to web sites outside the store.

Spotify demanda a Apple ante la Comisión Europea por normas de la App Store que

Spotify acaba de hacer público que interpondrá una demanda a Apple ante la Comisión Europea. El motivo alegado por la compañía sueca de streaming son las reglas que en los últimos tiempos Apple ha introducido en la App Store, que según su comunicado "limitan intencionadamente las posibilidades de elección y ahogan la innovación a expensas de la experiencia del usuario, actuando esencialmente como jugador y árbitro para perjudicar deliberadamente a otros desarrolladores de aplicaciones".

Spotify defiende que ha tratado de resolver esta cuestión de forma privada con Apple, pero tras no conseguirlo, piden "a la Comisión Europea que tome medidas para garantizar una competencia leal. La compañía que revolucionó el streaming afirma no tener problemas con que Apple sea competidora de Spotify con Apple Music y propietaria de la App Store y de iOS, pero "sí con las ventajas injustas de las que Apple se beneficia", como "ser juez y parte".

Spotify explica los motivos por los que demanda

Como ya ha ocurrido antes con actores como Amazon, Spotify no ve bien el "impuesto" del 30% de las compras realizadas a través del sistema de pago de Apple, que incluye la suscripción Premium de Spotify. La acusación aquí es clara: "si pagamos este impuesto, nos obligaría a inflar artificialmente el precio de nuestra membresía Premium muy por encima del precio de Apple Music", algo que rechazan poder hacer si quieren mantener los precios competitivos de cara a los clientes.

Pero Spotify no sólo se queja de esto, sino de todo lo que le hace ser un ciudadano de segunda categoría en iOS. En una web llamada Time to Play Fair, la compañía repasa, mediante una cronología, "cómo hemos llegado hasta aquí". El primer paso muy polémico de Apple lo fechan en febrero de 2011, cuando Apple eliminó la capacidad de utilizar botones de pago o enlaces ajenos al sistema de pagos de Apple, por el cual obtiene un 30% de cada transacción. Esto llevó a Spotify a eliminar cualquier tipo de forma de pago en la app, que llevó a no poder pasar a la suscripción Premium desde la app.

Además de Spotify, otros grandes como Amazon también han tenido problemas con Apple por las políticas de pagos en sus aplicaciones, pero hasta ahora no habían dado un paso como demandar a la Comisión Europea

A ello, Spotify suma que "durante los próximos tres años, Apple continuó realizando una presión continua para adoptar los pagos en la aplicación", a lo que la compañía sucumbió implementándolos, eso sí, subiendo a 12,99€ el precio del plan premium (desde 9,99€), para compensar la pérdida de tener que repartir la tarta con Apple. Desde entonces, Spotify repasa distintos pasos y cambios de políticas de Apple que implican rechazos a algunas actualizaciones de Spotify en la App Store por poner mensajes como "Saber más" o incluir la palabra "Gratis" en las capturas de pantalla.

Spotify

Otras medidas similares, como enlazar a una web en la que se anunciaba el descuento Premium de 3 meses a 0.99€ (sin especificar cómo conseguirlo) también fue suficiente para expulsar Spotify de la App Store, algo que Spotify afirma que incluso el jefe de abogados de Apple les contó que era correcto.

Más allá del dinero, algo que Spotify tampoco comparte es cómo Apple limita las opciones de aplicaciones de terceros frente a sus servicios. Es el caso de, por ejemplo, Siri, cuya API para buscar canciones, artistas o álbumes no está accesible para Spotify, pero sí para Apple Music. Tampoco pueden hacer uso del HomePod, el altavoz inteligente de Apple, que nativamente sólo es compatible con Apple Music. Sobre los ingresos de servicios de Apple, Spotify ve un agravio que sus pagos procesados en iOS tengan un gran cargo para la compañía, mientras que Apple se queda con todo el pastel de la tarta, porque gestiona sus propios ingresos.

Spotify pide a la Comisión poder competir limpiamente en la App Store y Apple Music, que los usuarios puedan decidir cómo pagar y poder comunicarse directamente con ellos

Por último, tras comprar Anchor y Gimlet Media, Spotify afirma que Apple decidió arbitrariamente que ya no pueden usar sus APIs para recomendaciones de podcasts. Además, Spotify acusa a Apple de enviar el tipo de notificaciones push promocionales sobre su servicio de streaming musical que el resto de competidores tiene prohibido lanzar.

Nos hemos puesto en contacto con ambas compañías para conocer su posición y futuras acciones. Actualizaremos el artículo cuando recibamos respuesta.

          Daddy Yankee vuelve al número 1 en la radio      Cache   Translate Page      

Martes, 12 de marzo de 2019 Por Agencia EFE- La canción "Con Calma" de Daddy Yankee es la canción más escuchada en la radio de Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico según el Broadcast Data System (BDS), informó este martes en un comunicado la empresa de representación, Perfect Partners.

Se trata del más reciente sencillo del reguetonero puertorriqueño que incluye la colaboración del canadiense Snow.

A menos de un mes del lanzamiento del sencillo y vídeo "Con calma", este nuevo éxito del icono urbano Daddy Yankee continúa escalando posiciones en el gusto del público internacional, acaparando por segunda semana consecutiva el primer lugar de la plataforma YouTube.

Además el tema se coloca en la segunda posición de las canciones más escuchadas en Spotify en el mundo y número dos en el listado global de la plataforma digital, Deezer.

Esta versión modernizada a ritmo de reguetón del tema "Informer", popularizada en los años 90 por el músico canadiense de reggae Snow, quien igualmente colabora en esta ocasión, alcanzó el tope de la lista global de Spotify.

El intérprete y productor celebra este éxito tras su regreso a Chile, donde el pasado fin de semana tuvo dos llenos totales en el Movistar Arena ante alrededor de 25.000 personas.

Este fin de semana llega a Argentina al estadio Geva con todo vendido.

El nuevo récord de "Con calma" se suma al alcanzado hace menos de una semana en la plataforma de YouTube cuando se colocó como la canción más reproducida en siete países, según Monitor Latino.

El número uno es el resultado de las reproducciones de radio en América Latina y en el mercado hispano de Estados Unidos.

El tema también continúa escalando posiciones en la plataforma digital Apple Music, 1 en Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, México, Perú y España; 2 en Bolivia, Costa Rica, Italia y Nicaragua.

De otra parte, Yankee suma otro logro para su carrera siendo candidato a formar parte del Salón de la Fama de los Compositores Latinos (LSHOF) en 2019 donde se reconoce el trabajo y legado de los cantautores y compositores latinos.

Los seis elegidos serán anunciados durante la séptima entrega anual de los Premios La Musa, que se llevará a cabo el próximo 17 de octubre en el James L. Knight Center de Miami.

As part of an initiative to promote "healthy conversation" on the platform, Twitter introduced its new updated camera, which has an interface similar to Instagram and Snapchat. Twitter’s head of consumer product Keith Coleman dropped the new feature at SXSW, which changes the way pictures, videos, and live streams are captured. Users can now swipe left from the timeline to access the camera. Once inside the camera, each option showcases a different interface with an overlay option that can include one of six different colors for captions, locations, and hashtags. Alongside the new function was the announcement of a new prototype Twitter app called "twttr," inspired by CEO Jack Dorsey's first tweet. The app alters the default app appearance of the platform, introduces newly formated color-coded replies, and removes engagement counts such as retweets and likes. “It knows where you are and what’s going on around you," Coleman said. "So if you’re at SXSW, it knows that, and it will suggest you add the SXSW hashtag.” In other tech news, Spotify Premium users can now get free Hulu. We're updating the Twitter camera over the next few days to make it simpler to use. Capture and share what's happening with a swipe and few taps right from your Home timeline. But wait, there's more!

          Spotify Opens Complaint Against Apple's App Store Policies      Cache   Translate Page      

Spotify has officially launched a complaint against Apple, relating to how the App Store is used to "purposely limit choice and stifle innovation at the expense of the user experience." The suit -- which was filed with the European Commission -- goes on to describe Apple as acting as "both a player and referee to deliberately disadvantage other app developers." The announcement from Spotify CEO Daniel Ek shows how the behind-the-scenes competition between the two companies has erupted into the public view. Spotify is in a difficult position as it is a direct competitor with Apple Music while also relying on the company to distribute its app across iOS devices. To shine a light on Apple's supposed indiscretions, Spotify has launched a website titled "Time to Play Fair" which lists all the different ways the Swedish company believes that Apple has "tilted the playing field." Spotify has not specified any damages it is seeking, but full details about the complaint can be read in Daniel Ek's statement via the Spotify blog. For more from Spotify, Premium users can now get free Hulu.

          Spotify attaque Apple à Bruxelles pour concurrence déloyale      Cache   Translate Page      

Spotify hausse le ton contre Apple et son fondateur, Daniel Ek, annonce le dépôt d'une plainte devant la Commission Européenne. En ligne de mire il y a ce que Spotify considère comme une concurrence déloyale de la part d'Apple : les règles fluctuantes de présence sur l'App Store, le statut de juge et partie d'Apple et les limites posées à la promotion et au fonctionnement d'une app sur l'App Store.

Daniel Ek, patron fondateur de Spotify

C'est un vieux combat de Spotify qui revient en lumière, au point que le service suédois a ouvert un site pour en établir la chronologie sous le slogan « Il est temps de jouer à la régulière ».

Dans ce récapitulatif remontant aux débuts de l'iPhone et de l'App Store s'y trouvent rassemblés les changements de règles sur la boutique de téléchargement, les difficultés posées à la création d'une app pour l'Apple Watch (ça a avancé depuis), etc.

C'est sur la commission des 30 % prise sur les abonnements, que Spotify concentre une large part de ses critiques. Le service rappelle que la possibilité de passer d'un compte gratuit à une formule Premium l'imposait de reverser 30% à Apple. Une « taxe » incompatible avec son activité, dans le contexte d'une concurrence avec Apple Music :

Si nous payions cette taxe, cela nous obligerait à gonfler artificiellement le prix de notre abonnement Premium bien au-dessus du prix de Apple Music. Et pour que nos prix restent concurrentiels pour nos clients, nous ne pouvons pas le faire.

Pour ménager sa marge, Spotify avait reporté sur le client le prix de cet abonnement. La même formule coûtait 12,99 € en In-App sur l'App Store et 9,99 € directement chez Spotify. Un déséquilibre auquel n'est pas soumis Apple Music, plaide Spotify, qui est proposé depuis le début à 9,99 € et intégré sur tous les appareils iOS et macOS.

Depuis un an, Spotify a donc retiré la possibilité de s'abonner au travers d'un achat In-App, obligeant l'utilisateur à le faire depuis son site. Un trajet que le client ne peut suivre depuis l'intérieur de l'app puisqu'Apple interdit qu'une app propose un autre mode d'abonnement que celui reposant sur son système. Un simple lien vers un abonnement extérieur est également proscrit.

C'est là un autre motif de mécontentement de Spotify (lire Spotify pousse à annuler l'abonnement In-App d'Apple) qui fustige la promotion qu'Apple fait pour Apple Music au sein de ses services, tout en bridant la communication de services concurrents.

Netflix a fait exactement comme Spotify à la fin de l'année dernière, il n'y a plus d'abonnement In-App de proposé dans son app.

Les règles fluctuantes et pas toujours écrites de l'App Store sont une autre source d'énervement pour le suédois. En avril 2018, Spotify a vu son app retoquée par les validateurs de l'App Store car l'une des captures montrait le mot "Gratuit". Trois mois plus tard, c'est le slogan "Get in, Get Premium" figurant dans une capture qui justifiait le rejet d'une mise à jour.

Daniel Ek regrette également qu'Apple ferme la porte du HomePod à Spotify, même si sur ce point le reproche est difficile à établir. C'est davantage Apple que Spotify qui se met dans une position de handicap, au vu du nombre d'enceintes concurrentes qui intègrent Spotify. Si un jour le HomePod règne sur ce marché, la question néanmoins se reposera.

Avec sa plainte devant la Commission Européenne (Spotify ne s'interdit pas de porter le fer dans d'autres pays) Spotify veut que chaque protagoniste soit soumis aux même règles sur l'App Store « Apple Music compris ». Puis, que les clients aient le choix du mode de paiement d'un abonnement qui leur convient, sans subir des « tarifs discriminatoires ». Enfin, que les app stores ne puissent contrôler la communication marketing entre les clients et les services.

Daniel Ek conclut sur la nature de sa démarche. À l'écouter, il s'agit moins d'une bataille entre Spotify et Apple que d'une lutte à un niveau plus global : « Nous voulons les mêmes règles, justes, pour toutes les entreprises, qu'elles soient nouvelles ou anciennes, petites ou grandes ».

Cette action de Spotify survient à un moment où plusieurs actualités se croisent. Dans quelques jours, Apple va annoncer son service de séries TV dont on peut penser qu'il s'articulera, commercialement parlant avec l'offre musicale (Apple a aussi une offre de presse magazine en préparation). Nul doute que côté promo, Apple ne va pas regarder à la dépense.

Spotify n'ayant pas de catalogue vidéo, il vient de renforcer son partenariat avec Hulu, un important service américain de VOD. Apple, via iTunes, est devenu un passage obligé pour obtenir des podcasts. Spotify a récemment fait de l'offre en podcasts un axe majeur de sa croissance future, et a acheté deux entreprises du secteur.

Enfin, sur la question de la régulation des plateformes de téléchargement d'apps, le sujet est devenu politique au travers du programme de l'une des candidates démocrates pour la présidentielle américaine de 2020 et d'initiatives décidées à Bruxelles (lire Europe : Apple verse de l’argent aux développeurs, l'UE met en place de nouvelles règles).

You may have spent more time typing you comment than reading the text. 1) Netflix, similar to Spotify, has been bypassing Apple’s subscription model, which requires the app developer to pay Apple a fee of for charging users to use the service, by asking users to pay outside of the app. This works to some extent, but making it harder to pay will also put some buyers off. 2) The base of Spotify’s claim is that the company wants to be treated like “numerous other apps on the App Store, like Uber or Deliveroo, who aren’t subject to the Apple tax and therefore don’t have the same restrictions.”

Disclaimer: I use Apple products and subscription services. I also am a Netflix subscriber (but not Spotify). Can someone answer -- and not guess the answer -- these scenarios: Scenario #1 1. A user directly signs up for Netflix or Spotify on the services' native website, and starts paying the monthly subscription via the setup. All CC info and subscription management is done via the native site. 2. A user later downloads the Netflix/Spotify app from the Apple App Store, and logs in using the credentials provided in Step #1 I am assuming that Apple does not get any cut for this scenario, if if Apple does, or attempts to prevent apps that have this subscription model capability, then this is wrong. Scenario #2 1. A user downloads the Netflix/Spotify app from the Apple App Store, and signs-up via the subscription capabilties via the Apple App Store. I am assuming that Apple gets the 30% cut of this -- and, I have no problem with this, as it represents a subscription model that would not otherwise be available. In this case, true, pretty much everyone has heard of Spotify or Netflix, but what about Netify or Spotflix? What if these new subscription services chose to use the Apple App Store to help manage all of their subscription fees? By doing this it saves some overhead (one can argue that 30% is a lot of overhead, but that is the set fee, if you don't like it, use Scenario #1)
          Here's why Spotify is declaring war on Apple and not Google (AAPL)      Cache   Translate Page      

Spotify Daniel Ek

  • Spotify wants Europe's competition watchdog to examine Apple for the way it runs the App Store.
  • Spotify has complained that the App Store's 30% tax on in-app subscriptions makes it less competitive than Apple's own streaming service, Apple Music.
  • But the obvious question is why Spotify isn't also going after Google, which also charges a levy for apps on its app store and has a music streaming service.
  • The problem boils down to the fact that Apple won't allow Spotify to advertise that subscriptions are cheaper through its website, not the app.

Spotify has filed an antitrust complaint against Apple with Europe's competition watchdog, arguing that the way it runs the App Store is anti-competitive.

CEO Daniel Ek complained in an open letter about the fact app makers have to hand over 30% of paid apps, in-app subscriptions, and purchases to Apple. The upshot is that if you pay $9.99 through iTunes for your Spotify account, Spotify has to give $3 of that to Apple.

Spotify argues that it has to raise prices, making it more expensive than Apple's own streaming service, Apple Music. And, the company said, if it tries to circumvent the 30% levy, it's punished by Apple.

One obvious question is why the complaint doesn't also include Google, which similarly charges Android developers to sell content or subscriptions through apps on its Play Store.

A source with knowledge of the matter told Business Insider that the difference is how Apple and Google behave with apps that circumvent their app store fees.

Read more: Spotify has bloodied Apple's nose once before. Now, it has a chance to cut its $853 billion rival down to size

According to Spotify, Apple makes life difficult for any service that tries to get around the 30% fee.

Spotify, for example, asks people to pay for its premium subscription through its website rather than through iTunes. But, Spotify says, Apple won't actually allow it to advertise those cheaper subscriptions inside the iOS app.

In a Q&A on its complaint against Apple, Spotify said:

"For example, they won’t let us market to our customers who use our app on iOS. So that deal we had for you last month to upgrade to our premium service that would have saved your family a lot of money? Sorry, we weren’t allowed to tell you about it.

"We aren’t even allowed to tell you something as simple as how and where to upgrade to premium via the app. Apple uses compliance with their restrictions as a pretext to block our app updates – whether they are bug fixes or enhancements, making it challenging, and in some cases impossible, to bring you our latest and greatest innovations."

But the same doesn't exactly apply to Google.

According to our source, Google allows Spotify to offer a choice of payment methods. Likewise, this person said, Google doesn't prevent Spotify directing its customers to buy a premium subscription through its website, rather than through the app.

Apple hasn't responded to the filing or the allegations yet.

          Spotify demanda a Apple ante la Comisión Europea por normas de la App Store que "perjudican deliberadamente" la competencia      Cache   Translate Page      

Spotify demanda a Apple ante la Comisión Europea por normas de la App Store que

Spotify acaba de hacer público que interpondrá una demanda a Apple ante la Comisión Europea. El motivo alegado por la compañía sueca de streaming son las reglas que en los últimos tiempos Apple ha introducido en la App Store, que según su comunicado "limitan intencionadamente las posibilidades de elección y ahogan la innovación a expensas de la experiencia del usuario, actuando esencialmente como jugador y árbitro para perjudicar deliberadamente a otros desarrolladores de aplicaciones".

Spotify defiende que ha tratado de resolver esta cuestión de forma privada con Apple, pero tras no conseguirlo, piden "a la Comisión Europea que tome medidas para garantizar una competencia leal. La compañía que revolucionó el streaming afirma no tener problemas con que Apple sea competidora de Spotify con Apple Music y propietaria de la App Store y de iOS, pero "sí con las ventajas injustas de las que Apple se beneficia", como "ser juez y parte".

Spotify explica los motivos por los que demanda

Como ya ha ocurrido antes con actores como Amazon, Spotify no ve bien el "impuesto" del 30% de las compras realizadas a través del sistema de pago de Apple, que incluye la suscripción Premium de Spotify. La acusación aquí es clara: "si pagamos este impuesto, nos obligaría a inflar artificialmente el precio de nuestra membresía Premium muy por encima del precio de Apple Music", algo que rechazan poder hacer si quieren mantener los precios competitivos de cara a los clientes.

Pero Spotify no sólo se queja de esto, sino de todo lo que le hace ser un ciudadano de segunda categoría en iOS. En una web llamada Time to Play Fair, la compañía repasa, mediante una cronología, "cómo hemos llegado hasta aquí". El primer paso muy polémico de Apple lo fechan en febrero de 2011, cuando Apple eliminó la capacidad de utilizar botones de pago o enlaces ajenos al sistema de pagos de Apple, por el cual obtiene un 30% de cada transacción. Esto llevó a Spotify a eliminar cualquier tipo de forma de pago en la app, que llevó a no poder pasar a la suscripción Premium desde la app.

Además de Spotify, otros grandes como Amazon también han tenido problemas con Apple por las políticas de pagos en sus aplicaciones, pero hasta ahora no habían dado un paso como demandar a la Comisión Europea

A ello, Spotify suma que "durante los próximos tres años, Apple continuó realizando una presión continua para adoptar los pagos en la aplicación", a lo que la compañía sucumbió implementándolos, eso sí, subiendo a 12,99€ el precio del plan premium (desde 9,99€), para compensar la pérdida de tener que repartir la tarta con Apple. Desde entonces, Spotify repasa distintos pasos y cambios de políticas de Apple que implican rechazos a algunas actualizaciones de Spotify en la App Store por poner mensajes como "Saber más" o incluir la palabra "Gratis" en las capturas de pantalla.

Spotify

Otras medidas similares, como enlazar a una web en la que se anunciaba el descuento Premium de 3 meses a 0.99€ (sin especificar cómo conseguirlo) también fue suficiente para expulsar Spotify de la App Store, algo que Spotify afirma que incluso el jefe de abogados de Apple les contó que era correcto.

Más allá del dinero, algo que Spotify tampoco comparte es cómo Apple limita las opciones de aplicaciones de terceros frente a sus servicios. Es el caso de, por ejemplo, Siri, cuya API para buscar canciones, artistas o álbumes no está accesible para Spotify, pero sí para Apple Music. Tampoco pueden hacer uso del HomePod, el altavoz inteligente de Apple, que nativamente sólo es compatible con Apple Music. Sobre los ingresos de servicios de Apple, Spotify ve un agravio que sus pagos procesados en iOS tengan un gran cargo para la compañía, mientras que Apple se queda con todo el pastel de la tarta, porque gestiona sus propios ingresos.

Spotify pide a la Comisión poder competir limpiamente en la App Store y Apple Music, que los usuarios puedan decidir cómo pagar y poder comunicarse directamente con ellos

Por último, tras comprar Anchor y Gimlet Media, Spotify afirma que Apple decidió arbitrariamente que ya no pueden usar sus APIs para recomendaciones de podcasts. Además, Spotify acusa a Apple de enviar el tipo de notificaciones push promocionales sobre su servicio de streaming musical que el resto de competidores tiene prohibido lanzar.

Google entiende lo imposible: por qué cuando buscamos

Tendrá sus cosas, pero hay que admitir que el buscador de Google es casi mágico a la hora de entender lo que queremos y buscamos. El último ejemplo lo tenemos en títulos de canciones en YouTube que no sabemos escribir bien pero que aún así Google interpreta a la perfección.

Probad si no nos creéis. Buscad "Aguanchu bi fri" en YouTube. O "Aaaaa cigueña". O "a rili rili won". O "ebribare". Todos esos términos dan como resultado canciones en las que esa pronunciación tan nuestra trata de sonar como la real en inglés de algunos grandes éxitos. Puede que Queen, Disney, las Spice Girls o los Backstreet Boys salgan espantados, pero lo cierto es que Google usa un sistema relativamente simple para hacer esa mágica asociación.

Aguanchu bi fri, Google. Aguanchu bi fri

Probablemente más de una vez hayáis realizado una búsqueda "peregrina" en Google. Hoy mismo yo no recordaba el nombre del actor principal de Breaking Bad, pero quería tratar de recordar qué película había hecho con John Goodman, de quien sí recordaba el nombre.

Queen1

¿Cómo lo he resuelto? Buscando en Google con los términos de búsqueda que sí recordaba "John Goodman película Breaking Bad actor". Listo: la película en cuestión era 'Trumbo'. Cuidado, porque quitar "película", por ejemplo, hace que esa búsqueda no dé los resultados deseados.

Esa mágica asociación de ideas que lleva a Google a saber lo que necesito es aún más llamativa con los pequeños, y si tenéis hijos que comienzan a hacer sus propias búsquedas seguro que os ha sorprendido ver cómo encuentran todo lo que buscan aunque no sepan muy bien cómo buscarlo.

Buscando música en YouTube de una forma especial

La cosa es aún más llamativa en las búsquedas de canciones en YouTube. Quienes no saben inglés o no lo dominan tanto como para saber escribir ciertas frases que aparecen en las letras de las canciones tienen en ese buscador a un verdadero aliado.

Lo demostraban las búsquedas que mostraban en Twitter diversos usuarios y que encontraban resultados sorprendentes para todas esas búsquedas. Todos correctos, por sorprendente (y en ocasiones algo casi vergonzante) que parezca.

Spice1

Así es como si escribes "Aguanchu bi fri" en el buscador de YouTube aparezca el videoclip de la canción "I want to break free" de Queen. Si pones "Aaaaa cigueña" sale "El ciclo de la vida", el tema principal de "El Rey León". Si buscas por "a rili rili won" aparece el vídeo de "Wannabe" de las Spice Girls, mientras que al buscar "ebribare" nos encontramos con el videoclip de "Everybody", de los Backstreet Boys.

Los ejemplos van aún más allá y hay búsquedas casi absurdas y que hacen un guiño al humor patrio y nuestro dominio del inglés. Entre los ejemplos, el "acachu filin", "pum pum pam rock", "eni ayuwoki", "buayas buayas" o incluso el impresionante "endaaa".

La magia no es tan mágica

¿Qué hay detrás de esa sorprendente forma de encontrar lo que buscábamos en Google? Pues algo que no es tan mágico como podríamos pensar: lo que hay detrás es el propio y enorme conjunto de clics de los usuarios. Son ellos los que acaban haciendo ese "trabajo sucio" que Google al final se encarga de ir puliendo con esos resultados.

Smartsearch

Esos términos de búsqueda funcionan así de bien porque ya hay mucha gente que ha confirmado que corresponden a esos resultados en particular. Es decir: el buscador "aprende" de aquello en lo que la gente hace clic en los resultados. Si era el resultado correcto, el usuario consumirá el vídeo y no hará otra búsqueda igual: Google asumirá que ese era el resultado correcto.

Son por tantos los usuarios los que van perfilando esas respuestas correctas con sus acciones. Al hacer esas búsquedas y ver los resultados, hacen clic en aquellas que parecen más adecuadas (aunque no estén en primera posición) y eso hace que al introducirse más búsquedas de ese tipo Google al final posicione aquellas que considera correctas porque muchos usuarios han interactuado con ellas de esa forma.

Es un sistema que se aprovecha también en otros servicios de Google como su buscador original o en Google News: el algoritmo aprende por las búsquedas y asocia palabras clave (keywords) a los clics: con las búsquedas en las que hay un CTR (Click Through Ratio) alto ese algoritmo entiende que ese resultado mostrado es el más correcto y lo posiciona por encima de los demás.

Canciones

Si un resultado correcto está más abajo, es que no ha tenido hasta el momento demasiados clics a pesar de ser el más adecuado, pero basta con que cierto número de usuarios -no sabemos cuántos- repliquen esa búsqueda y ese clic para que ese resultado se posicione como el primero.

En Xataka nos hemos puesto en contacto con Google para ahondar en la cuestión,y desde allí Vicky Campetella, portavoz de YouTube nos explicaba cómo "con la función Smart Search de YouTube Music, no necesitas espic in inglis para encontrar tus canciones favoritas, desde 'maigüei', pasando por 'ai yas col tu sai' hasta incluso 'opaganiaestai'"

Esa función de búsqueda inteligente de Google con su Smart Search es precisamente la que se encarga de ir aprendiendo de todas esas interacciones que realizan los usuarios con este servicio para lograr unos resultados que, desde luego, son sorprendentes.

La magia efectivamente no era tal. Y aún así, lo parece, ¿no creéis?


          Spotify demanda a Apple en Europa por "limitar intencionadamente las opciones y ahogar la innovación"       Cache   Translate Page      

Spotify demanda a Apple en Europa por

Daniel Ek, CEO de Spotify, anunciaba en una entrada en el blog oficial de la empresa que había interpuesto una demanda ante la Comisión Europea en contra de Apple. Spotify compite en iOS con el propio servicio de Apple, pero lo hace según Ek en desigualdad de condiciones.

Acusa a la empresa de Cueprtino de aprovechar su posición de privilegio para limitar la innovación y la competitividad, y en Spotify incluso han creado un sitio web detallando todas las técnicas de Apple para cambiar las reglas del juego.

Apple es juez y parte

El sitio web, llamado "Time to Play Fair" ("Es la hora de jugar limpio") muestra cómo Apple "le niega a los consumidores la capacidad de elección real" o "impone una tasa del 30% discriminatoria" a sus competidores para poner en ventaja sus propios servicios.

Spoti2

Esa tasa provoca que cuando Spotify la paga, tiene que "inflar artificialmente" sus precios, que acaban siendo más altos de los de Apple Music. Y si no lo hace, Apple aplica "un conjunto de restricciones técnicas" que limitan la experiencia de Spotify y la vuelven inferior.

Este tipo de medidas hacen que las acciones de Apple violen la ley según Spotify, ya que la competitividad "no funciona a menos que todos tengan una oportunidad justa" para luchar en ese mercado.

Esta es la primera vez que una demanda de este tipo contra la App Store sale a la luz en la Unión Europea. La tienda de Apple impone una tasa del 30% del precio de las compras en la App Store, y del 15% en el caso de las suscripciones después del primer año. Los portavoces de la Comisión Europea ya están investigando el caso según The Wall Street Journal.

Spotify files antitrust complaint against Apple over its 'app tax'Spotify has declared war on Apple over the fees it charges for access to the iPhone App Store in a move that that could have far-reaching consequences for the media and technology industries.   In a formal competition complaint to Brussels, the Swedish music streaming giant 's founder Daniel Ek accused Apple of abusing its dominance of the smartphone market to "deliberately disadvantage" competitors.   The music streaming business has also complained that its service is locked out of Apple devices including the HomePod smart speaker and Apple Watch. Spotify general counsel Horacio Gutierrez said he believed the business was losing out commercially because of Apple’s policy of taking a 30 pc cut from apps downloaded via its App Store. “We feel confident in the economic analysis we have submitted to the Commission that we could have done better than we have done so far,” he said. The complaint is the latest sign of growing resistance to Apple from companies which offer music and video streaming and gaming services available via its App Store.  In a blog post, Daniel Ek wrote on Wednesday that “Apple has introduced rules to the App Store that purposely limit choice and stifle innovation at the expense of the user experience—essentially acting as both a player and referee to deliberately disadvantage other app developers.” Mr Ek said that Spotify had attempted to resolve the dispute directly with Apple, but decided to approach antitrust regulators in Europe to intervene. A spokesman for the European Commission said that “the Commission has received a complaint by Spotify, which we are assessing under our standard procedures.” Apple declined to comment. The antitrust complaint adds to a growing backlash against the tolls Apple and Google charge to developers using their app stores. Apple's policy of taking a cut from apps distributed via its service forced Spotify to increase monthly subscriptions for premium sales via the Apple App Store from £9.99 to £12.99. Around the same time, Apple launched a competing music streaming service for £9.99 per month, it added. Spotify has since pulled the option to subscribe to its premium service from its iPhone app. EU regulators are also increasingly concerned about how technology platforms control the online ecosystem and may rig the game to their own advantage.



          Spotify Files EU Antitrust Complaint Against Apple       Cache   Translate Page      
Spotify has filed a complaint with European Union antitrust regulators against Apple, saying the iPhone maker unfairly limits rivals to its own Apple Music streaming service.  Spotify, which launched a year after the 2007 launch of the iPhone, said on Wednesday that Apple's control of its App Store deprived consumers of choice and rival providers of audio streaming services to the benefit of Apple Music, which began in 2015.  Central to Spotify's complaint, filed with the European Commission on Monday, is what it says is a 30 percent fee Apple charges content-based service providers to use Apple's in-app purchase system (IAP).  Forced to raise price Horacio Gutierrez, Spotify's general counsel, said the company was pressured into using the billing system in 2014, but then was forced to raise the monthly fee of its premium service from 9.99 to 12.99 euros, just as Apple Music launched at Spotify's initial 9.99 price.  Spotify then ceased use of Apple's IAP system, meaning Spotify customers could only upgrade to the fee-based package indirectly, such as on a laptop.  Under App Store rules, Spotify said, content-based apps could not include buttons or external links to pages with production information, discounts or promotions and faced difficulties fixing bugs. Such restrictions do not apply to Android phones, it said.  "Promotions are essential to our business. This is how we convert our free customers to premium," Gutierrez said.  Voice recognition system Siri would not hook iPhone users up to Spotify, and Apple declined to let Spotify launch an app on its Apple Watch, Spotify said.  Spotify declined to say what economic damage it believed it had suffered.  "We feel confident in the economic analysis we have submitted to the commission that we could have done better than we have done so far," Gutierrez said.

Gimlet Media, creator of such excellent podcasts as Crimetown, Reply All, and Science Vs, was recently acquired by Spotify for $230m; in the wake of the acquisition, the staff have announced a successful unionization drive organized under the Writers Guild of America East (WGAE), which is also organizing Vox Media's team: the union will have about 80 members, drawn from the production, editorial, host, and reporting staff, but excluding managers, marketing and sales staff.

The team is seeking “consistent and transparent job descriptions and salary bands;” “equitable processes for protecting employees’ intellectual property;” and “employee input in company decision-making;” among other things. Spotify has previously said Gimlet will retain its independence. The team will still work out of its Brooklyn, New York office, and Spotify has equated the deal to Disney’s relationship to Pixar or Marvel. Gimlet will operate as a studio under a bigger parent corporation.

According to a report in Bloomberg, Spotify demanded […]

          Hyvän elämän 7 perusasiaa      Cache   Translate Page      
Olen elämäni aikana muuttanut aika moneen uuteen paikkaan, pakannut tavarani, purkanut ne, aloittanut alusta. Muutin 17-vuotiaana yksin vaihto-oppilaana Minnesotaan ja 19-vuotiaana Isoon-Britanniaan. 21-vuotiaana ja taas 23-vuotiaana Prahaan. 24-vuotiaana Lontooseen. 26-vuotiaana New Delhiin. 27-vuotiaana Kabuliin. Nyt 31-vuotiaana vähäksi aikaa Teheraniin.



Olen oppinut, mikä on itselleni oikeasti tärkeää ja minkälaiset asiat luovat kodin, miten tilapäinen se onkaan. Tietenkin ihmiset ovat tärkeimpiä kaikissa paikoissa, mutta listaan tässä materiaalisia asioita.

Top-7 listani hyvään elämään:


1) Kynttilät





En matkusta mihinkään ilman kynttilöitä ja tulitikkurasiaa. Afganistanin "pakolaukussani" oli mukana tuikkukynttilä ja tulitikut - en tiedä ajattelinko sen tunnelmanluomisen kautta jossain vakavassa evakuointitilanteessa vai jonkinlaisena "kun helikopteri hajoaa erämaahan, voin tehdä tulen" -ajatteluna. Molemmat vaihtoehdot kumpuaa kuitenkin samasta logiikasta.

Teheraaniin muuttaessani yksi ensimmäisistä asioista (kohdan nro 3 kanssa) oli tuikkukynttilöiden ostaminen. Mikään ei luo lohduttavaa ja rauhoittavaa tunnelmaa samalla tavalla kuin kynttilänvalo. Vaikka uusi kotini olisi minkälainen mörskä tahansa, kynttilänvalossa kaikki näyttää aina paljon paremmalta. Tulitikun raapaisun tuoksu on myös lempituoksuni.

2) Omat puhtaat lakanat




Nämä eivät myöskään koskaan jää kotiin, ellei ole ihan pakko. Tuon omat lakanani, vaikka tilapäiskämpässä olisikin valmiiksi lakanat. Olen rakastunut näihin nykyisiin pellavalakanoihini (tietenkin jos kirjoittaa blogia, pitää omistaa pellavalakanat), ja en jätä niitä mihinkään.

3) Vihannekset ja hedelmät




Missä tahansa asunkin, sieltä pitää saada tuoreita vihanneksia. Tämä on oikeasti huipputärkeää. Iranissa ja Afganistanissa ei kovin paljon syödä kasvisruokaa, joten teen itse usein ruokani. Syön mielelläni salaattia joka ilta, enkä kyllästy siihen koskaan. Maakuntamatkoilla Afganistanissa pakkasin laukkuuni aina muutaman kurkun, paprikan ja omenan, ihan varmuuden vuoksi. Jos elämässä ei olisi kurkkua, se olisi paljon synkempää.

4) Joogamatto




Keho ja mieli oireilee ilman joogaa kun se on kerran koukussa. Joogata voi ilman mattoakin, mutta se on vähän vaikeampaa kun kädet liukuu ja naamaa vastassa on likainen kokolattiamatto.

5) Musiikki 


Teheranin väliaikaiskämppäni opiskelija-asuntolassa.

Musiikkia pitää kuunnella joka ilta tai muuten tuntuu, että jotain puuttuu. Iraniin muuttaessa en tajunnut, että Spotify on monien muiden internetpalvelujen tavoin blokattu. Olin ladannut offline-tilaan vain yhden musiikkilistan, joten kuuntelin samaa listaa kaksi kuukautta putkeen. Silti parempaa kuin hiljaiset illat.

6) Omat saippuat




Mihin tahansa matkustankin tai miten täynnä laukku jo on, pakkaan mukaan omat pesuaineeni. Lushin pikkusaippua mukana huonoimmastakin läävästä tulee vähän luksuksempi.

7) Kahvi (ja tee)




Aamu Elämä ei lähde käyntiin ilman kunnon kahvia, joten etsin useimmiten ensimmäiseksi uudesta kotikaupungista kunnon kahvintekovälineet ja kahvikupin. Afganistanissa ja Iranissa ei hirveästi juoda kahvia vaan teetä tarjoillaan joka puolella. Afganistanissa vihreää teetä ja Iranissa aina mustaa. Olen tottunut pakkaamaan mukaani pienen purkin Nescafe Gold -pikakahvia maakunta- ja syrjäseutumatkoille. Nescafe Gold on aika pahaa, mutta kahvi on huonoimmillaankin joskus parasta, mitä voi olla.

Mitä teidän elämän selviytymissettiin kuuluu?

          Gimlet staff announce unionization plan following Spotify acquisition      Cache   Translate Page      

Gimlet Media, creator of such excellent podcasts as Crimetown, Reply All, and Science Vs, was recently acquired by Spotify for $230m; in the wake of the acquisition, the staff have announced a successful unionization drive organized under the Writers Guild of America East (WGAE), which is also organizing Vox Media's team: the union will have about 80 members, drawn from the production, editorial, host, and reporting staff, but excluding managers, marketing and sales staff.

The team is seeking “consistent and transparent job descriptions and salary bands;” “equitable processes for protecting employees’ intellectual property;” and “employee input in company decision-making;” among other things. Spotify has previously said Gimlet will retain its independence. The team will still work out of its Brooklyn, New York office, and Spotify has equated the deal to Disney’s relationship to Pixar or Marvel. Gimlet will operate as a studio under a bigger parent corporation.

          Brasil quer multar Facebook por Cambridge Analytica e ação de hackers      Cache   Translate Page      

O escândalo da Cambridge Analytica continua gerando repercussões negativas para o Facebook. O Ministério da Justiça e Segurança Pública (MJSP) informou nesta terça-feira (12) ter instaurado dois processos contra o Facebook que podem obrigar a empresa a pagar R$ 18 milhões. Um deles é para averiguar a responsabilidade da rede social no caso de vazamento de informações para a empresa de consultoria política que prestou serviços para Donald Trump durante sua campanha presidencial, em 2016.

Os dois processos foram abertos pelo Departamento de Proteção e Defesa do Consumidor, órgão da Secretaria Nacional do Consumidor, ligada ao MJSP. A pasta averigua uma possível falha da empresa em preservar a privacidade de seus usuários brasileiros. Neste ano, a pasta iniciou uma investida contra empresas de tecnologia que lidam com grandes volumes de dados. Em fevereiro, o Google foi alvo de uma ação que pode resultar em multa de R$ 9,7 milhões. A acusação é que a empresa "lê" emails que circulam pelo Gmail.

O MJSP incluiu como alvos dos processos tanto o Facebook Inc, matriz norte-americana da rede social, como o Facebook Serviços Online do Brasil Ltda, a subsidiária brasileira. A pasta deu 10 dias para as companhias apresentarem uma defesa administrativa. Após ser contatado pelo UOL Tecnologia, o Facebook informou que colabora com o ministério.
O Facebook está à disposição para prestar esclarecimentos ao Departamento de Proteção e Defesa do Consumidor

A primeira ação diz respeito ao roubo de informações de usuários promovido pela Cambridge Analytica. Por meio de um teste de personalidade distribuído na rede social, a firma britânica reuniu dados de 87 milhões de pessoas. Dentre eles, estavam 443 mil brasileiros.

Esse levantamento massivo não era proibido à época em que ocorreu, em 2014, mas o que a empresa fez em seguida, sim. Ela retirou essa imensa quantidade de informações da plataforma e a utilizou para traçar os perfis psicológicos de pessoas nos Estados Unidos e Reino Unido. O objetivo era interferir nas campanhas presidenciais do primeiro país e nas discussões sobre a saída da União Europeia no segundo.

O segundo processo instaurado pelo MJSP focará a ação de hackers que, no ano passado, expuseram informações de 29 milhões de usuários do Facebook. Uma brecha no site permitia que os cibercriminosos roubasses dados como:
  • Nome
  • Endereço de email
  • Celular
  • Nome de usuário
  • Data de nascimento
  • Gênero
  • Tipos de dispositivos com que você acessou o Facebook
  • A língua em que você usa o Facebook
  • Status de relacionamento
  • Religião
  • Cidade de nascimento
  • Cidade atual
  • Trabalho
  • Educação
  • Site
  • 10 mais recentes localizações que você fez check-in ou que foi marcado
  • 15 buscas mais recentes que você procurou na barra do Facebook
  • Pessoas e páginas que você segue no Facebook
Segundo o MJSP, a empresa pode ser obrigada a pagar multa de R$ 9 milhões por ação.

Terceira ação

De acordo com a pasta, o Facebook foi notificado a respeito da possibilidade de uma terceira ação ser aberta. A rede social foi requisitada a prestar esclarecimentos sobre a suspeita de que a empresa use aplicativos para coletar dados sensíveis de usuários, como o de ciclo menstrual ou de frequência cardíaca.

Se o Facebook não responder aos questionamentos ou caso haja provas de que os consumidores tiveram seus direitos violados, o MJSP pode abrir um terceiro processo contra a rede social.

Apesar de a pasta não detalhar de onde partiram as suspeitas, a prática descrita por ela está alinhada com as condições do Facebook para que aplicativos usem sua plataforma de anúncios. Para poderem exibir publicidade contratada junto à empresa de Mark Zuckerberg, serviços conectados, como Spotify e TripAdvisor, enviam dados de seus usuários ao Facebook, ainda que essas pessoas não possuam conta na rede social.

A prática foi descrita no começo deste ano pela Privacy International, uma entidade britânica que trabalha em defesa da privacidade e contra práticas corporativas e estatais que vão contra isso.

          Google entiende lo imposible: por qué cuando buscamos "Aguanchu bi fri" sale el vídeo que queríamos de Queen      Cache   Translate Page      

Google entiende lo imposible: por qué cuando buscamos

Tendrá sus cosas, pero hay que admitir que el buscador de Google es casi mágico a la hora de entender lo que queremos y buscamos. El último ejemplo lo tenemos en títulos de canciones en YouTube que no sabemos escribir bien pero que aún así Google interpreta a la perfección.

Probad si no nos creéis. Buscad "Aguanchu bi fri" en YouTube. O "Aaaaa cigueña". O "a rili rili won". O "ebribare". Todos esos términos dan como resultado canciones en las que esa pronunciación tan nuestra trata de sonar como la real en inglés de algunos grandes éxitos. Puede que Queen, Disney, las Spice Girls o los Backstreet Boys salgan espantados, pero lo cierto es que Google usa un sistema relativamente simple para hacer esa mágica asociación.

Aguanchu bi fri, Google. Aguanchu bi fri

Probablemente más de una vez hayáis realizado una búsqueda "peregrina" en Google. Hoy mismo yo no recordaba el nombre del actor principal de Breaking Bad, pero quería tratar de recordar qué película había hecho con John Goodman, de quien sí recordaba el nombre.

Queen1

¿Cómo lo he resuelto? Buscando en Google con los términos de búsqueda que sí recordaba "John Goodman película Breaking Bad actor". Listo: la película en cuestión era 'Trumbo'. Cuidado, porque quitar "película", por ejemplo, hace que esa búsqueda no dé los resultados deseados.

Esa mágica asociación de ideas que lleva a Google a saber lo que necesito es aún más llamativa con los pequeños, y si tenéis hijos que comienzan a hacer sus propias búsquedas seguro que os ha sorprendido ver cómo encuentran todo lo que buscan aunque no sepan muy bien cómo buscarlo.

Buscando música en YouTube de una forma especial

La cosa es aún más llamativa en las búsquedas de canciones en YouTube. Quienes no saben inglés o no lo dominan tanto como para saber escribir ciertas frases que aparecen en las letras de las canciones tienen en ese buscador a un verdadero aliado.

Lo demostraban las búsquedas que mostraban en Twitter diversos usuarios y que encontraban resultados sorprendentes para todas esas búsquedas. Todos correctos, por sorprendente (y en ocasiones algo casi vergonzante) que parezca.

Spice1

Así es como si escribes "Aguanchu bi fri" en el buscador de YouTube aparezca el videoclip de la canción "I want to break free" de Queen. Si pones "Aaaaa cigueña" sale "El ciclo de la vida", el tema principal de "El Rey León". Si buscas por "a rili rili won" aparece el vídeo de "Wannabe" de las Spice Girls, mientras que al buscar "ebribare" nos encontramos con el videoclip de "Everybody", de los Backstreet Boys.

Los ejemplos van aún más allá y hay búsquedas casi absurdas y que hacen un guiño al humor patrio y nuestro dominio del inglés. Entre los ejemplos, el "acachu filin", "pum pum pam rock", "eni ayuwoki", "buayas buayas" o incluso el impresionante "endaaa".

La magia no es tan mágica

¿Qué hay detrás de esa sorprendente forma de encontrar lo que buscábamos en Google? Pues algo que no es tan mágico como podríamos pensar: lo que hay detrás es el propio y enorme conjunto de clics de los usuarios. Son ellos los que acaban haciendo ese "trabajo sucio" que Google al final se encarga de ir puliendo con esos resultados.

Smartsearch

Esos términos de búsqueda funcionan así de bien porque ya hay mucha gente que ha confirmado que corresp
