Dearest music labels, can you please stop trying to make Grooveshark a guinea pig? Where are all your lawsuits against Google and Amazon?

15 Dec

Just as Google takes down any music or music videos that are uploaded by Google/YouTube account holders and deemed “copyright-infringing” by music labels or artists, so does Grooveshark.

So why not sue Google as well? You’re just trying to shut down a smaller, but innovative company that was one of the first movers and sponsors of music in the digital, streaming age.

By the way, I heard of this thing called Google Music. I’ve currently uploaded over 13,000 songs to it too. Oh, and I did the same for Amazon Music.

But wait, did Google and Amazon get your permission before starting these music services like Apple did? No. Google reached out only after starting its service, and Amazon still has ways to come.

So why not work things out fairly with Grooveshark?

Be fair to everyone, or just let the innovators continue changing the world we live in for the better. I’ve bought concert tickets for musical artists I found on Grooveshark that I would have never purchased had I not heard their music streaming on Grooveshark.

Will Amazon Soon Spy On You Through Your Kindle or Amazon Phone?

15 Dec

Made public last week, the patent describes a system that allows mobile devices — read Kindles, or a future Amazon phone — to track the geographical position of users, and then use that information to predict their likely next steps. The intention is then to use that information to better target ads, coupons, or other messages, that could appear either on the mobile device itself, or on big screens or other displays on the person’s route.

It’s not hard to imagine Amazon striking up deals with retailers, malls and venues who have TVs and other displays dotted abut, in order to beam adverts right at you. Nor is it hard to imagine it working incredibly well: if I was at a bar at a sports game and received a promotional voucher on my phone or Kindle offering cheap tequila, then hell, I may well take it.
