If Apple is Peaking, What Digital Services Are Next?

Without another iPhone, iPad or iPod, Apple will not have the next innovative product that transforms the digital music marketplace. The question then becomes who will step in and take from Apple its place at the top of the digital music heap?

Myspace’s new design actually has people excited

Myspace’s new design actually has people excited | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

When advertising firm Specific Media bought Myspace – complete with investment from Justin Timberlake – it’s fair to say the most common reaction was a shrug. Dying brand, no chance of a comeback.

 

Yet if you thought of Myspace less as a falling social network, and more as (potentially) the largest music discovery site in the world, there was a glimmer of hope. Well, a video teaser of the new Myspace has fuelled that hope.

 

As one heavily-retweeted Twitter user put it: “Instagram + Pinterest + Windows 8 + Justin Timberlake = SexyBack”. It’s very beautiful, heavy on images, and light on clutter. Music remains a key ingredient too, with mixes, trending artists and songs, a radio option and a whole section spotlighting ‘This week’s Top Fans’.

In the app era, radio goes Wi-Fi and 3G - Boston.com

In the app era, radio goes Wi-Fi and 3G - Boston.com | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Remember when listening to radio­ meant tuning in to AM or FM? These days, I do most of my listening via Wi-Fi or 3G.

 

With Internet audio apps such as Pandora and Spotify, any smartphone can pull in ­music, news, and sports from around the world. But sometimes you want something close to home — your favorite hometown sports talk show, or local news and weather updates.

 

Luckily, there are plenty of audio apps that tune into traditional radio­ broadcasts, offering features you won’t find on that bedside clock radio.

A Changing Music Industry Calls for Unconventional Marketing and Promotion | Evolver.fm | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

The music industry’s troubles are well documented, hinging on contradictory realities: Music is too free to be expensive and too expensive to be free.

 

People no longer spend money on music automatically, so promoting it is arguably more important than ever. One approach is to try to “turn your band into a virus.” Let’s take a look at three other proven ways to promote music: merchandise, apps, and location.

7digital Expands Effort To Encourage Music Tech Innovation - hypebot

7digital Expands Effort To Encourage Music Tech Innovation - hypebot | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Many music technology entrepreneurs, developers, and start-ups have ideas that usually sound great in theory (most overused term: “game-changer”), but it isn’t until they actually get their hands dirty in the development of their product that they begin to realize its shortcomings and concept fallacies. By then, they might have already burned through whatever funding they had in the bank, and then are left stuck with a product that they sadly realize won’t actually amount to anything. To address this common issue among music tech visionaries, UK based digital media company 7digital is offering a new program specifically designed for music tech developers and start-ups called the “Prototype Package.”
