This week it’s been announced that Dave Berry is getting in the driving seat of Absolute’s, home time show, while KISS Fresh goes national. Plus futuristic developments in podcast advertising and voice activation, and Sony and Spotify strike a deal.
This week's blog delves deep into topics such as Spotify's blossoming relationship with Facebook, an inciteful look at voice-activated devices and of course the infamous Podcast Pick of the Week.
After months of secrecy Apple have announced that former BBC Radio 1 host, Zane Lowe will be the headline presenter on Apple's new global radio service Beats 1.
Playlister is an exciting and innovative addition to any music lover’s software toolkit.
Although the name suggests a content driven radio service, it is in fact much more akin to the streaming services already popular with music fans such as Spotify and Last FM.
Available in the US only (although further rollout is planned), it offers a subscription based service to rival Spotify and Rdio. Apple are also rumoured to be planning a streaming service launch (also subscription based) later this year.
So should Spotify be quaking in their oh-so-on-trend boots? Frankly, no.
