Last.fm to require subscription for radio use on mobile apps

Starting February 15th, Last.fm will no longer offer its radio service via mobile apps for free. From that point on, a Last.fm subscription will be required if you want to listen on your smartphone. In the official announcement, Last.fm's Matthew Hawn spells out the reasons for the change. Unsurprisingly, it's got a lot to do with profitability. Last.fm on the desktop will continue to offer...

8tracks music site adds easy genre filtering, still fantastic as ever

Earlier this week, I wanted to see what it feels like to be an American online -- you know, to explore all of those websites only Americans get to play with, like Hulu, Pandora, and Slacker. So I signed up for a high-speed proxy service and started cruising around. What I discovered was actually quite a letdown. It turns out that both Pandora and Slacker have really, really irritating commercials...

Delete Your Account helps you delete accounts from online services

Deleting your account from a social networking site can be as hard as canceling a gym membership or convincing a telemarketer that you're not interested in their product. Social networking sites and other online services don't want you to delete your account. There's value for them in being able to quote huge and growing user numbers, regardless of whether those users are happy to be there (though...

Now that Facebook threw down the gauntlet with their new Facebook Platform which allows unprecedented access to developers to add third party apps, we're going to see lots more fun tools to use within Facebook.

New Last.fm features: Flash player, concerts, free MP3s, and more

Recently social music site Last.fm unveiled an impressive array of new features, the first since July. Here's a breakdown: Flash player Previously listening to Last.fm radio required downloading and installing a desktop app, which was less than optimal. While the desktop player remains, Last.fm now also has a version in Flash that plays inside your browser. It's compact and works pretty much as...

Music recommendation round-up

Awhile back we linked to a head-to-head comparison of music recommendation sites Pandora and Last.fm (to refresh your memory, Last.fm came out on top) . Of course, Pandora and Last.fm aren't the only fish in the sea, and ExtremeTech is running a round-up review of eight similar services: MusicStrands, Liveplasma, UpTo11.net, Audiri, Pandora, Mercora, Yahoo! LAUNCHcast Radio, and Last.fm. They...

PandoraFM integrates Last.FM and Pandora

A month ago I reported on a cool mashup that feeds track names directly from Pandora to Last.FM. I called it "rough around the edges" at  the time, but according to TechCrunch's Michael Arrington, "PandoraFM" now has the support of Pandora's developers and full access to the API. It could still use a healthy dose of CSS, but the mashup service now has a framed interface...

Web service integrates Last.fm with Pandora

When I get sick of my (somewhat limited) music collection, I fire up Pandora for a little variety. But wouldn't it be cool if tracks I listened to in Pandora were also added to my Last.fm account? Real-ity Interactive has a cool service that does just that: You enter your Last.fm username and password and the site launches a custom Pandora player that, with some script magic, submits the songs you...
