Do you watch and listen to music videos on YouTube a lot? Perhaps you should take a look at a JukeFly…

Are you the kind of person who goes to YouTube when they want to listen to a song?  Be it for listening to something new, on a friends advice, or perhaps just to listen to a few songs you already like but don’t have your music with you.  Well if that is the case then you should probably check out JukeFly.

I’m going to start with explaining what JukeFly aims to achieve and the fundamentals behind the service and then follow up with some screenshots of its interface with annotations as to what does what and where.

Jukebox aims to do one thing really well, make the music you want to listen to, available wherever you are.  Ok sure there are plenty of other services which share this aim such as Spotify, my personal favorite Grooveshark, and indeed Windows Media Player now supports streaming to anywhere you can log into you Windows Live Account.  However, one shouldn’t dismiss JukeFly off the bat as there are a couple of quirks which might make JukeFly a better choice for some users and here they are: Read more

“Sugar Jesus” – The Band That’s “Breaking into You!” [Interview] [Free Download]


Sugar Jesus? Perhaps the next big thing according to several outstanding reviews. It is quite amazing that a band with comments such as “Indie Disco Kings” and “The forerunners of Synth Pop’s thriving underground!” from reputable names such as TimeOut and ArtRocker aren’t already causing mass audio induced euphoria during the daily commute. They are my dirty little secret that I and their loyal listeners can turn to in times when we just need to escape for a wonderful 3:30s (approx).

Ahem, in all seriousness and music review jargon aside, Sugar Jesus really could be one of the next big things to take up residence in that place which brings “silent” humming and foot tapping to our lives. Sugar Jesus has a good blend of “mainstream factors” which apply the easy listening required for instantly likeable music, whilst maintaining a feeling that I can only describe as an unique. You really have to listen to it to understand, but if you do in the future, or perhaps you already have, you will definitely understand the emotion that I am doing my utmost best to describe. They are a band which definitely have something at their heart, and that something…is Damn Good! Read more

How To Increase your Mobile’s Memory with Dropbox

A lot of you who are reading this may already have heard of Dropbox and possibly are already using it as an alternative to a USB stick for backing up, storing and sharing files.  Nevertheless I will quickly cover the basics of what Dropbox does, and touch on what it can really be capable of.

As you have gathered Dropbox is a way you can store, and share files.  Dropbox puts a folder on your computer which you can save files to like any other.  Once files are put in this folder these files are uploaded, synced and stored online in a mirror image of the folder on your computer.   This allows one to be able to get the files you put in that folder from anywhere which is connected to the internet.  Remember that isn’t just computers but your mobile as well!  So you can share your files with others from your computer, your mobile, or anything internet enabled.  Indeed the cartoon to the right illustrates how many people feel when it comes to Dropbox as a file sharing method. So what could you use it for? Read more

Grooveshark Makes It’s way to the iPhone – again!

LogoGrooveshark is a fantastic audio cloud solution.  A more popular example (at least in the UK) of something similar would be the service provided by Spotify.  In short Grooveshark offers a light-hearted source for all your music needs.  Just go to their website, type in what you want to listen to, select the exact song from a list and you are off.  Grooveshark has many other features including a personal library, playlists, favourites and almost everything you might expect from a desktop client.  Still, I digress, this article is not about Grooveshark as a whole (that is to come) but is about their recent resurgence onto the iPhone.
