Turning an online music service into a powerful automated DJ isn't easy. You can give an algorithm millions of songs and millions of data points, but it's still not going to have any style. So of all your options—including Google's new All Access—what's the streaming radio most worth your time? We found out.
News spread this morning that MOG has been purchased by HTC/Beats Audio for $10 million, which probably was not the payout the Berkeley-based company was hoping for (disclosure: I used to work there once upon a time). And while Spotify appears destined to win the streaming music wars (as far as subscription services…
Facebook has taken a leaf out of MySpace's book. Now, on every musician's Facebook page there's a "Listen" button, that immediately takes you to their music in your streaming app of choice—Spotify, Mog, Rdio, or one of a few others. Neat. [TechCrunch]
We've heard from a single source that subscription music service MOG has been acquired by audio technology company Beats Audio, which is part owned by phone maker HTC
CNET says the streaming music service MOG has quietly approached entities in the digital music space about buying the company. MOG says they're doing just fine, but of course, have offered little in the way of numbers to back that up. Are the streaming music services starting to find the floor in the freemium race to…
Rdio, Spotify, and Mog may be the hot new subscription based services, but old timer Rhapsody just purchased all of Napster's subscribers.
It's a bit odd to see a major label executive saying he likes the freemium services Spotify, MOG and Rdio have established and that the industry has finally figured it out. Or is it not so odd?
Starting tomorrow, MOG users will have access its 11 million song library for free with no monthly usage cap—as long as they're willing to put up with ads and actively interact with other users.
MOG finally released a desktop app for OS X to accompany their web and smartphone-based players, which is great. But what makes it really interesting is that it's one of the first non-Apple desktop apps to offer native AirPlay support.
Spotify may've launched on Sonos a while back, but considering the US is still awaiting the streaming service, it might be worth giving Mog a shot—you can listen to 11 million songs on-demand and ad-free, around your house.
Google Music is here, promising the magic of the cloud. Is it the perfect way to consume music digitally? Well, that's what they want us to believe.
The era of listening to any song, at any moment, in any location is fast approaching. While we're not quite there yet, a handful of on-demand music services have come close. So we put them head-to-head to see who's best.
MOG, the latest entrant into the increasingly competitive world of cloud-based mobile music services, has a combination of features, including unlimited, high-quality downloads from its impressively stocked 8 million song library, that make its $10/mo. subscription a compelling option.
Until now, Mog, the music blog network, has been missing one key ingredient: mainstream music.
