A new kind of news in 20 second sound bites

How many times do you hear it these days? The news is too serious. It's depressing. Whether it be terrorist bombs, street shootings or violent Black Friday fights, it almost makes you wanna turn off the news and watch "Two and a Half Men." Well, maybe I'm stretching it a little there but i'm sure you know exactly what I mean. In actual fact, more and more people are turning to their mobiles to catch up on the news rather than the traditional TV nightly versions. However, if the truth were known, even mobile news leaves a little to be desired.  More

The most intuitive of all internet radio stations

Music is a strange thing. We are all affected by it in different ways and have different expectations when we listen to it. Some of us want to know everything about our favorite artists including their inside leg measurement while others aren't quite so fussy and just want to have some decent and familiar music to while away the hours and hum along to. Music streaming apps have latched onto this and there are now a squillion different places to access the music that you love. Pandora is probably the oldest of the free internet music streaming services and likes to think of itself as the ...  More

Spotify vs Pandora

When Apple handed over US$3 billion to rapper Dr. Dre and producer Jimmy Iovine for their Beats Electronics headphones business recently it signalled a probable change in the way that we will listen to music in the future. With technology moving at such a rapid pace it was only a matter of time before our music listening habits would be put to the test once again.It all began, of course, with vinyl records and the radio being our main sources of listening pleasure. It wasn't until the 70's that the cassette and the much-loved 8 -track were introduced to the world. Then there was the ...  More

Pandora for news radio

You've just got to look at the recent Academy Awards and the Emmys to see just how much political, social and news events have engulfed our lives just in the last five years. There are so many political films like Argo winning awards and the wealth of quality political tv shows like Newsroom, House of Cards and VEEP! is astonishing. The fact is, we as a people, are getting addicted to the news of the day and we want to have an easy way of getting it. Many of us are sick of the 'shock jocks' on the radio and search out a better way of news gathering. Swell Radio is a new news streaming ...  More

Stream your PC content onto your mobile in real time

So many of us are using our smartphones and tablets far more than we do our personal and work computers these days. With the advances in technology for those devices moving at such a rapid rate over the last couple of years their popularity has soared. In fact, with the aid of a good wifi and a few apps, they can almost become a second computer. But there are still some things on your computer that you can't view on your device unless you are prepared to use cumbersome and time consuming methods. AirStream is an app that lets you stream media content and other files in real time from your ...  More

A free music video community for unsigned artists

TV shows like "The Voice" and "X-Factor" have been a boon for a specific type of artist in recent times. Not only have record companies rushed to sign an awful lot of artists but those same artists have had the opportunity to sell millions of albums and often shoot to the top of the iTunes chart. But, as I said, the types of artists that tend to succeed on those sorts of TV shows are commercial pop artists who aren't too dissimilar to what's out there already. What happens to the artists who are a bit more original yet just as talented. Well, that is where this music app comes in useful. ...  More

Why didn't Netflix think of this 'coming soon' feature?

I always find it amusing when someone sees a hole in the market and comes up with an app for something we all know should have been included in the service in the first place. I guess Instagram is a classic example - if Facebook had its photo uploading shit together it wouldn't have to have forked out 100 million big ones for a simple photo app. StreamThing is the simplest idea for an app. It tells you when movies and tv shows that you want to see are due to be shown on Netflix instant streaming. Now why didn't someone at the US's biggest online movie channel think of that?   Its been ...  More

After seeing literally heaps of music apps being unleashed on the market over the last year or so, things have gone rather quiet since the Spotify juggernaut came rolling into town.
