Pandora Provides Detailed Data, Including GPS Coordinates, to Advertisers

After it was revealed earlier this week that several smartphone app makers, including Pandora, were being targeted by a federal grand jury in New Jersey for illegally gathering and distributing user information, security firm Veracode decided to do its own analysis. It took a look at the Android version of Pandora's streaming music app, and found that it was feeding data to five different...

New Jersey Feds Call Grand Jury Investigation Into Smartphone Apps

Federal prosecutors in New Jersey have called for a grand jury investigation to determine whether or not smartphone apps have been illegally gathering and spreading users' personal information. According to the Wall Street Journal, federal authorities are looking into whether or not app manufacturers properly disclosed the kinds of personal information their apps collect from users, and whether...

How to Bookmark Songs in Pandora

Pandora may be great at unearthing songs you never knew existed, but its social and bookmarking features are still stuck in the early Aughts. You could just jot down that great Charles Bradley track that's playing right now, but Pandora does, in fact, offer an easy, if somewhat hidden, way to save songs or artists. In the Pandora Web interface, just click 'Menu' under the album artwork,...

25 Best Android Apps Under $1

You may be on the road less traveled, but, if you are part of the Android movement, you are ahead of the smartphone curve. The platform's many benefits are offset, though, by real setbacks -- like the fact that Android owners aren't shepherded by the Draconian App Store monitored by the Big Brothers at Apple. We are freer, but we are also subjected to a load of crap, like cross-platform...

25 Best iPhone Apps Under $1

The holidays are expensive enough. Why spend extra cash on tricking out your iPhone with sweet new apps? Besides, there are zillions of selections on the market; how can you even figure out which ones you really need -- or better yet, which ones won't chew through your battery and destroy your phone? Wouldn't it be great if there were a list of iPhone apps that were not only cheap, but essential,...

Google TV Inches Closer to Reality With HBO, Twitter, Netflix Partnerships

Today Google TV got its own website to call home. While largely an exercise in marketing hype, the new site offers the first serious glimpse of Google TV apps in action. You'll be able to get your social network on, thanks to an official Twitter app, but more exciting are the apps offered by content partners that blur the line between Web and television. The 'NBA Game Time' app, for instance,...

Pandora to Expand Ad Program to TVs, Blu-ray Players

Pandora streams its radio programming to approximately 65 million registered users, so the service presents an excellent avenue for advertisers to reach a broad audience. The Internet radio company's fledgling iPad advertising program has already attracted major corporations like Starbucks, Lexus and Budweiser, all while Pandora is reportedly planning to initiate another, more diversified ad...

Pandora Adds Genre Stations to Its Recommender Radio

If you haven't yet familiarized yourself with Pandora, do so now. Just yesterday, Pandora expanded its recommendation system for the first time in years by allowing users to listen to ready-made, genre-specific stations. While these rather broadly defined stations should pretty well serve the more catholic-minded listener, we music snobs will probably stick to the old way. David Bowie and the...

Kindle and iPad Get Magnified, Double Rainbow Meets Kubrick

There's a load of great tech news happening out there every day, and, unfortunately, we just can't cover it all. Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web. The Bit-101 blog throws the Kindle and iPad under the microscope to compare pixels with close ups of print. [From: Bit-101] The Double Rainbow meme shows its...

Internet Radio Could Drive FM Radio Away from Cars

When's the last time you actually sat in your room or office and listened to FM radio? Be honest. Thanks to Internet radio services like Pandora, it's probably been quite a while. According to The New York Times, drivers, too, could inch further and further from traditional radio as automakers and car stereo manufacturers partner with mobile devices and Internet radio. The obvious draw here is...

Facebook Connects the Web at F8 with Social Graph, Pandora and More

Share The first day of Facebook's f8 developer conference got underway yesterday in San Francisco. After welcoming their attendees with a set of ankle bracelets discretely packaged as RFID tags, Mark Zuckerberg & Co. got down to the business of explaining their plans to take over the entire Internet. The RFID devices enabled users to tag themselves in photos and share their location and...

Rhapsody Forging Independent Identity, Cutting Prices

Although music streaming sites have enjoyed a successful presence on the Web for many years, the popular services are in the midst of a definite boom. Pandora, Last.fm and Blip.fm have all helped to redefine online music appreciation, and MOG recently announced an impressive mobile program that will provide unlimited downloads and streaming for $10 per month. Spotify, the incredibly popular...

Music Sales Decrease by 21-Percent; Spotify, YouTube, 'ADD' to Blame

The CD market has been dying a slow, inglorious death for more than a decade now, since consumers having long ago shifted to the quicker, easier digital download format. According to a new study, though, it's not just CD sales that are suffering, but the music industry as a whole -- including those vaunted download sales. A report from market research firm NPD shows that between 2007 and 2009,...

Boxee Sits Comfortably Atop the Media Center Hill

What it is. Boxee is the most hyped media center software to ever hit the market. It's supposed to change the way we watch TV, how we discover new content, and solve global warming. Okay, maybe not that last part, but you can only expect so much from what amounts to a prettied-up version of the open-source XBMC (Xbox Media Center)....

DARPA's 3-D Surveillance Experiments Take a Page from Pandora

Since James Cameron completed 'Avatar' he's probably looking for another project to occupy years of his life. (We're sorry if it makes you depressed to hear that it's really over). Instead of wasting time on another overrated technology demo posing as cinema, we think Cameron should use his talents for something a little more worthwhile. What could be better than a government-funded military...
