Den svenske musikktjenesten Spotify, som fungerer på samme måte som Wimp, har lenge hatt rykter om en lignende applikasjon på mobile plattformer. I dag tidlig la Spotify selv ut dette inlegget hvor de bekfrefter at Spotify for iPhone har blitt sendt inn til Apple for godkjenning.

Med dette kan du få tilgang til Spotify mer eller mindre overalt. Selskapet har selv laget en omvisnignsvideo av applikasjonen:

Funksjoner

Offline playlist
Ved hjelp av Offline playlist kan du høre på musikk selv om du skulle være uten nettverk, eller ikke vil benytte deg av 3G/Edge-nettverket (som koster penger).

Synkronisering
Spotify for Mac/PC synkroniserer umiddelbart med Spotify for iPhone. Dermed vil det ikke oppstå problemer ved at deler av musikkbiblioteket ligger igjen. Her foregår synkroniseringen kontinuerlig og trådløst.

Søk
Søk foregår på samme måte som i Mac/PC. iPhone applikasjonen er altså ingen “lite” version av Spotify. Dette er en fullverdig mobil applikasjon som har like mye musikk som den desktop-versionen.

Applikasjonen er som sagt sendt inn for godkjenning. Spotify melder at de tror det vil ta noen uker før den er ute i App Store. Prisen er foreløbig ukjent, men Spotify krever at du har et premium-abonnement på Spotify for å kunne bruke iPhone applikasjonen. Dermed vil nok Spotify øke salget av premium-kontoer dramatisk. Premium-abonnement på Spotify koster pr. dags dato 99,- kr (det vites ikke om dette er NOK eller SEK).

EDIT: Spotify for iPhone og Android er nå ute og kan lastes ned fra App Store og Android Market. Begge applikasjonene er gratis, men krever som nevnt ovenfor et Spotify Premium-abonnement.

I have been meeting the words “Getting Things Done” several times the last days. And I kept wondering what it was. So, as I often tend to do, I searched the internet and found out this:

Getting Things Done, GTD or The Getting Things Done method is a way of action management developed by David Allen. It is a world wide phenomenon (and I didn’t know about it before now…) which has grown largely the last years. I have just started to learn this technique, so unfortunately wont be teaching it (since I probably am more of a student than most of you guys). Still, I thought this was really interesting and I agree very much with Mr. Allen’s thinking. So I thought – Share, this may very well just work.

The essence of his philosophy is that you wont get anywhere with a lot of thoughts, ideas and et cetera in your mind. You have to move your thoughts to another place, like a piece of paper or in to one of all the To-Do softwares that is out there. By writing it down, you get control and organize. (Correct me if I’m wrong. As I said, this is very new for me)

Anyhow, I will be reading his book and I’ll do an outline when I have been experiencing more of this management method.

Here’s David Allen talking in front of Google employees about GTD, I recommend you watching it – even tough it is 45 minutes. I can ensure you it is worth it.

I just came over this video on YouTube, and I thought it would be a great share. The video, named “DEADLINE” is made by YouTube user banilu.

From the video’s descripition:

This is my senior project at Savannah College of Art and Design. Where my idea comes from is that every time when I am busy, I feel that I am not fighting with my works, I am fighting with those post-it notes and deadline. I manipulating the post-it notes to do pixel-like stop motion and there are some interactions between real actor and post-its.

Enjoy!

Cool, uh?
