If you’re from the US, and have and android phone, you’ll most likely have tried Google Music All Access, the new music streaming service from our overlords Google. If you’re like me, and not from the US, then you will also have tried Google Music All Access, the new music streaming service from our overlords Google!
I’ve been a Spotify user for a long time, and as such I’ve amassed quite a lot of playlists on their service. This is perhaps the one main issue stopping me from moving over to Google Music full time, well that and not being able to set the download location to an external storage location, but I digress.
However, Portify is a tool that may make the move a lot easier. It will essentially transfer your Spotify playlists over to Google Music All Access. The application does require both of your passwords to run, but the developer has opened up the code so you can check yourself that nothing malicious is going on.
You can find the app and more information over at the developers website. Let me know how it goes!
I’m a fairly active guy generally, and enjoy running and going to the gym. I also love listening to music, however I find wired headphones and exercise just don’t mix. I always seem to catch the cable of my earphones with my arm and thus the earphones go flying off in any old direction. This is where bluetooth earphones come in. The wireless nature leads them into the domain of sports and exercise, and particularly running. I managed to get a hold of the Jogger bluetooth headphones from MobileFun. To see how these fair take the jump!Google+ Profile
I’m always on the lookout for a good set of wireless earphones, mainly for when I’m at the gym or out on a run. But, for me the dream is also to find an excellent, and affordable, pair of bluetooth earphones with sound quality to match a decent wired pair. So having laid that out there, I had big expectations from the Plantronics Backbeat Go earphones.Google+ Profile
Since the dawn of time (or at least, since the time that stock android releases began to look decent), we have wished for manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung to release their phones with the stock android, and without the horrible Sense and Touchwiz overlays they seem intent on pushing down our throats.
With the announcement of the Nexus Experience/Google Edition versions of the HTC one and Samsung Galaxy S4, we should all be happy now right?Google+ Profile
Here's one for you "style seekers"..
So I just got a press release informing me that the Galaxy Young will be released this weekend.
I mean I don't know about you guys, but there are far too little Galaxy phones out there for my liking…
Press release attached for your pleasure:
24 May 2013, London, UK – Following the launch announcement earlier this year, Samsung has today revealed that the Galaxy Young will be available in the UK from this weekend. Ideal for style seekers, the Galaxy Young is available in a range of different colours and boasts a compact and stylish design.
Running on Android™4.1 (Jelly Bean), the Galaxy Young allows mobile tasks to be completed much faster and more efficiently and with the Dropbox app users can access files in any location; for easy editing and sharing. With 4GB internal storage users can take advantage of the multimedia content capabilities and talk for longer due to a 1GHz processor and 1,300mAh battery capacity.
Simon Stanford, Vice President of IM division, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland said: “As with all smartphones in our Galaxy range, the Galaxy Young is stylishly designed and packed full of really standout features that make it a great phone to experience and own.”
The Galaxy Young will be available in the UK from a number of networks and online retailers including Carphone Warehouse and O2.

The title says it all. A new Verizon reseller (people keep saying the word mvno, I think the partnership is much tighter than that of an mvno-network though) by J.Lo, but the name sort of makes me think they are selling lipstick and mascara, rather than phones..
Viva Movil was born from the idea that you deserve a better shopping experience - Jennifer Lopez
It's directed at the Latino population in America, which may or may not work, I don't have that much knowledge around this area tbh, is it something people will go for?
J.Lo is the chief creative officer, and majority owner, which sets this situation apart from the others such as Blackberry/Alicia Keys etc.
It sounds like they are going to be pushing bling accessories too….
You know what… Samsung really hit a winner here.
What better way to advertise (because that's effectively all this is) your new smartphone and its features, than to create a musical short film (music video?) around it.
And I actually quite like the music too, always a bonus!
It's things like this that have helped project Samsung to the top of the phone charts. Obviously they spend a hell of a lot of money on marketing, but you also have to get it right too, and they seem to get it right more than they get it wrong (the sports team playing pop music together in the changing room for example!).

It has some pretty good reviews on both the Play Store and the Amazon store. Worth checking out (and saving yourself £1.59 in the process! )

A lot has been made recently of the personal assistant in the Samsung Galaxy S4, especially its opinions about a certain other company. What most people don’t realise is that this software is not just available on the S4, but most of the high-end Samsung Galaxy phones. So, in order to learn more about our friend, I went ahead and asked it a few questions…Google+ Profile
