Amazon Cloud Player review: functional, not mind blowing, and still US-only

It's hard to believe: our world-spanning network, our Internet, which is the cornerstone of free speech and free society -- which, on a good day, is capable of causing populist revolutions -- is still crippled by banal geolocation restrictions. We are, of course, talking about Amazon's two latest offerings, both of which are only available in the United States. Last week it was the excellent...

Google Music being tested internally, beta soon?

One day soon, we may actually get to spend some hands-on time with the oft-delayed Google Music service. According to CNET, Google is currently testing the service internally. Unfortunately for the rest of us, until Google works out all the licensing details with the major record labels, there's not really any chance of us being able to set up our own cloud-based music lockers on Google...

Mobile torrenting: how to manage and stream downloads from your phone

While exciting progress is being made in the realm of high-speed mobile data, it will be a long time indeed before wireless operators can catch up with wired bandwidth and ubiquity.

Still, just because you run your BitTorrent client on...

Netflix Android app leaks, doesn't work on most phones

Android users continue to wait patiently for two key video apps: Netflix and Hulu. Just recently, we found a change on the Hulu site which indicates an app might be coming soon -- and now the Netflix Android app has been leaked. Unfortunately, the pre-release app doesn't really function the way you'd like a Netflix app to function. While you will be able to log in, view your Watch Instantly...

To that end, Rdio is enlisting the aid of developers by releasing an API for the service and announcing an...

Google's Android cloud music sync already works on hacked app

A while back, an .APK installer for an updated Android Music App was yanked out from the digital aether and put on display. Unfortunately, it was a little too force-close-happy for our liking. A little volatility has never derailed the enthusiastic testers at XDA before, though, so we weren't surprised to read that several users had recently discovered something very cool about the app. After...

As the blogosphere continues murmuring about the impending (but repeatedly delayed) arrival of Spotify on U.S. soil, Rhapsody is taking advantage of the extra time by doubling down on free music.
