Add playback hotkeys to Amazon Cloud Player with a Chrome extension

Sure, Amazon's Cloud Player works -- as long as you're in the U.S. or willing to do some tinkering -- but it's fairly simplistic at the moment. There are plenty of features missing which we'd like to see added -- but since Cloud Player is a Web app we don't have to wait for Amazon! Google Chrome users, for example, can add playback hotkeys with an extension called keyMazony. Once...

HTML5 MP3 player lets you listen to your music library inside your browser

While this slick little HTML5 audio player might not pack all of the features of your favorite desktop media application, it's still a very cool demonstration of what a Web app can do with access to local resources -- like MP3 and OGG files.

LimeWire shutdown leads to massive drop in music piracy

LimeWire might not have been the downloading program of choice for elite users like those of you reading Download Squad right now, but there's no denying its popularity with the average user.

Nokia kills off Comes With Music in all but 6 countries

Nokia's experiment with the OVI Unlimited Music service -- which the company branded as "Comes With Music" on many of its handsets -- is winding down. A Nokia spokesperson has stated that the service just hasn't gained enough traction to keep it going. Competition from other services -- like Spotify and iTunes -- ultimately proved to be too much in certain markets. Unlimited Music will still be...

Mflow is a snazzy new music discovery Web app

Mflow is a new music discovery app I came across in the Chrome Web Store -- though as with many "apps" there, it was little more than a bookmark with a pretty icon. In truth, the mflow (yes, it's all lower case...) beta works in any browser. Sign yourself up, or simply log in with your Facebook account and choose a username. After that, it's all about searching, following, and "flow"-ing. When...
