You might remember Yo, the iOS and Android app whose only function is to send your contact list push notifications that said “Yo.” It went viral in June, when the Internet learned that it was worth an obscene $1 million, and added about 1 million new users in the process. I argued it was a sign that developers had hit a low point in mobile innovation; others, such asYahoo Finance’s Jeff Macke , argued that Yo communicated “a piece of information ...

THE FUTURE
Facebook is listening. The social network released a Shazam-like update to its mobile app Wednesday that allows you to automatically identify, using your phone’s microphone, the song or TV show you’re watching in Facebook posts. That includes everything from the NCAA playoffs to the most recent episode of Veep.  Courtesy of Facebook. It works like this: When you begin to compose a status on your Android or iOS app, you can choose to add what F...

linkedIn is not happy
There’s a new browser extension floating around that allows you to see the email of any member of LinkedIn at no cost—except your own privacy on the site. The tool, called SellHack, allows you to “hack into” LinkedIn’s system and reveal the personal email on (almost) any person’s profile. No, SellHack isn’t breaking into LinkedIn’s secure systems. It does this, according to its very own blog, by running through an algorithm while you’re on a p...

I reviewed this really pretty smart speaker. Check it out. 
That’s one of the ambitious claims made by Aether’s Cone speaker, which was announced with great fanfare last March. I lived with the Cone running a pre-release version of Aether’s software software for a month in my small Brooklyn studio, and I have to say it looks and sounds great. But the voice recognition is still somewhat spotty, and as a source of discovery for new music, it’s still not dramatically better than just using Beats, SoundClou...

spotify got an extreme makeover. check out its best features in my little write-up
Spotify revealed a slick, redesigned platform for its mobile and desktop apps Wednesday. Along with the new, darker look comes a list of improved features that Spotify says will help listeners more easily organize and discover music. The updated design will arrive on the Spotify website, desktop player, and iPhone app for all listeners in the coming days.   Spotify, for newcomers, is a music streaming service that gives you on-demand access to ...

I'm pumped for the new Beats streaming service. Check out my mini review: 
In the race to power what music is playing in your earbuds, the Beats go on.  On Tuesday, Beats Music — a new streaming music service from the Dr. Dre-associated Beats Electronics — launched, offering music lovers yet another choice for how to stream their jams and offering competition to entrenched services like Spotify and Rdio. Considering the near ubiquity of Dr. Dre’s music accessory empire, it’s no doubt that many people will at least give...
