Hello, everyone! It's a new day!
Spotify is now accepting sign-ups for services. Here is the link to their sign-in page. And yes, I've already put my name forth.
I started using this a while back, courtesy of Dave the Mobile Warrior who helped me set it up.
No pricing has been announced but expect it to be free for a few hours of streaming and if you can't get enough of it, you can sign up for a subscription. According to Macrumors, €5 to €10 per month for European users. I think we'll see about $10. But to do well, I think they would need to go as low as $5 a month. After all, you already get Netflix streaming for $8 a month. It would not make sense for a music service to cost more than video streaming.
So, what are you waiting for. Sign up now!
Note: Remember those unlimited data plans I mentioned yesterday that are going away. They're pretty handy when I needed to catch up on some TV shows. Now with music streaming, those plans are even more valuable.
Another Note: Amazon and Google both offer music lockers for users to stream their own music while Apple will have iTunes Match for $25 a month that allows users to store their music in the cloud. I love competition!
