Spotify teams up with Starbucks for music partnership

121024_starbucks_blog

Spotify has plans to offer exclusive content to Starbucks loyalty members, the coffee chain said on Monday, via CNBC. The deal will allow frequent customers to gain access to Starbucks music on Spotify, and share input on in-store playlists. I’m not sure if that’s a supposed to be a privilege or not, but seeing as some folks spend hours upon hours inside Starbucks locations across the country, the feature will make these little coffee shops feel more like home.

And as a perk for Starbucks employees, baristas will get a free Premium subscription. Combined, Spotify and Starbucks have access to 70 million members, with the potential to grow the subscriber base of both platforms. There isn’t much to the collaboration right now, though it’s a neat way to further infuse music into the everyday Starbucks culture.

Music is an important part of Starbucks, even if its millions of customers don’t notice what’s playing. For those who do spend day after day inside the popular coffee shops, it’s a fun way to play DJ.

“For over forty years, music has played a vital role in Starbucks Third Place experience—inspiring our partners and customers in unexpected ways that have helped to shape the global pop culture,” said Howard Schultz, chairman and CEO of Starbucks. “And we are delighted and honored to bring Spotify directly to our customers.”

Now that Starbucks has moved away from selling physical media, partnering up with a digital powerhouse like Spotify seems as though it was the next logical step.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
