Streaming radio is here to stay

Streaming radio has gained in popularity apart from the podcasts and Youtube uploads that one gets to experience over the internet. The reason for this is partly due to AOL’s contribution to this form of radio that people from all over the world has been able to listen to.

Not only is it CD quality music but also the best music that is put out for our listening pleasure day after day just like some of the best conventional radio stations that you will get to hear. Most of all, this radio free broadcast requires a broadband internet connection and a decent set of speakers and you are all set to go.

While some of us love particular genres of music like pop, rock, jazz, country and so on and so forth, most people who aren’t as passionate prefer to listen to the top 40 track list in the country. Now thanks to the power of the internet, one can hear the best songs for that particular week through radio stations that now have their own online version as well as independent operators that don’t charge a single penny.

As technology seeks to bring us closer together, music over the internet will do the rest. No matter what, Internet radio is here to stay!

Multiple Carriers Could Get iPhone In 2010

Apple is considering bringing the iPhone to multiple carriers as soon as summer 2010 in a bid to maximize market penetration of it’s flagship product. Analysts have pointed at the recent success and dramatic increase in sales in regions and countries that offer the iPhone on multiple carriers, as opposed to the US, where the device is still exclusively offered on only one carrier.

Aside from the market penetration numbers in other regions, sources state that Apple and AT&T are experiencing a few rough patches in their relationship, including coverage issues, feature support and controversy over app approvals. Also this news comes at a time when the FCC is reviewing exclusive contracts between wireless providers and handset makers to verify if they unjustly favor technology companies over consumers. Apple’s contract with AT&T wireless ends in summer 2010 and some experts have speculated that Apple may be looking at Verizon Wireless, the largest carrier in the US. However, since Verizon’s current infrastructure is not supported by the iPhone, it remains to be seen whether Apple will wait until it transitions it’s network to 4G, which may take several years or redesign the iPhone to work with Verizon’s current technology.

This Is The Age Of The Netbook, And Nokia Wants In

According to Nokia’s own Executive Vice President for Devices, there’s a simple reason why this company (which usually operates on the cell phone market) has decided to come up with a netbook of their own. According to Kai Oistamo, their business is connecting people – and as such the Nokia Booklet 3G was a natural evolution for Nokia. That’s actually a good reasoning, especially since netbooks are the kind of device that effectively bridge the gap between a smartphone and a full-blown laptop.

Judging from the technical specs that were divulged so far, a lot of research and planning was put into developing this device, and it’s clearly positioned as a confident step forward among the vast offerings of netbooks already available on the market. The much anticipated Nokia Booklet 3G does indeed convey the impression that Nokia has been paying good attention to what’s going on within the industry. This is a slim aluminum-cased machine with several integrated devices which aren’t always common in netbooks, including a 3G/HSPA modem, bluetooth, GPS, bluetooth… and of course wireless connectivity. Most notably, it sports a 10.1″ HD screen and HDMI port for high definition video-out.

With a little over two pounds of weight and less than one inch thick and an autonomy of up to 12 hours on a single charge, it looks as though this is going to be a brilliant netbook – although it probably won’t be one of the cheapest machines around. It will be officially presented to the public in September 2, 2009 – so if this article aroused your interest, rest assured you’ll get access to all the detailed specs and release dates very soon.
