Faites chauffer vos connexions Internet, Baboom veut proposer du streaming musical en FLAC. Mais bonne nouvelle, le téléchargement des fichiers devrait aussi être au rendez-vous. La vraie question est : quels fichiers ? En début d'année, Kim Dotcom s'attirait les railleries d'une partie du Web en lançant Baboom, la fameuse "bombe" que le fondateur de l'empire MEGA réservait à l'industrie musicale.
As predicted, Amazon Prime has joined the ranks of music streaming services today as its new Prime Music service has now gone live. Let’s look at the pros and cons of the Prime Music as it now appears.
Although it’s not publicly stated, it’s reported that Amazon Prime currently has somewhere around 10 million subscribers in the US and around 20 million worldwide.

CB Insights, a relatively new site that's building a database of startup and VC investment information, recently took a look at music startups and noted, that though the kinds of deals they're tracking have risen in the last couple of years, a smaller percentage of them have been for U.S.-based companies.
