So Peugeot - yes, that french car maker - launches a music service.
Is it the dawn of a new generation of services, spawned by 20th century industry giants trying desperately to bring a Apple/iShit vibe to their products?

Spotify Connect: First Take

Spotify today announced an in-home strategy called Spotify Connect.  Spotify will be built itself into the chipsets of a number of digital home audio manufacturers’ audio systems and speakers, including Argon, Bang & Olufsen, Denon, Hama, Marantz, Philips, Pioneer, Revo, Teufel and Yamaha.  Integrated devices will have a Spotify Connect logo, sort of like Intel Inside for music.  It’s a smart move of the sort that I have been advocating for years.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Spotify (and the others streaming start-ups) will extend their market share by getting inside your house thru hardware.

Deals cut with the hardware players will make tomorrow streaming giants.
