The Fifth Horseman

MG Siegler, the self-acclaimed reengage, Apple fan and overall bad boy of tech, wrote a very compelling article about Samsung – here’s an excerpt and a link to the story:

“…trying to suggest that Samsung is not one of the most important companies in technology is increasingly folly. In fact, there’s a decent chance that it will end up being the most important tech company of 2013.”

mSpot Movies is Closing

Monday, 10/15/2012, 3:47pm

Many thanks to all who enjoyed the mSpot Movie Club and service; mSpot Movies will be closing on October 30, 2012. mSpot will continue to provide mSpot Movies to its wireless carrier partners up until the end of 2012.

mSpot Music is closing on October 15, 2012

Wednesday, 9/19/2012, 9:52am

The mSpot music service will be closing on October 15. It is a difficult decision to shut down mSpot as so many users love it. Our new service, Music Hub, offers a more complete music experience. The service integrates all of your music in one place: your own music in the cloud using fast "scan-and-match" technology plus 100 GB of storage for “unmatched” songs, millions of catalog songs, radio discovery, and a music store. You can easily access all of your music wherever you go, and never need to switch between apps. The music never stops.

After tremendous success with Music Hub on the Galaxy SIII, we’re excited to tell you, Music Hub will soon be available on the newly launching Note II, available in European stores starting this October. The Note II, just announced at IFA 2012, is getting significant buzz:

“We put the device to the test today to see how those amped-up insides reflect in the Note II's benchmark scores. As you'll see below, Sammy's latest handset fares significantly better than the original Note and the Galaxy S III.” Check out the full Engadget review.

mSpot Music selected to PCWorld 100 Best Products of 2011

Thursday, 11/03/2011, 1:45pm

We’re thrilled to be chosen ahead of so many other music service apps – along with a 5 star rating!

Here are some highlights of the review…

“Playback over 3G was a better experience than with Amazon's Cloud Player or Google's new Music app. I heard little to no delay between songs, and buffering was never an issue. Users can select the audio quality of songs when they upload them, though I was quite satisfied with the default quality setting.”
