Mossberg Gives His Opinion on MusicMatch

"One of the more interesting ideas in the new wave of cloud-computing services is the music locker. This is a service that lets consumers store their music collections on a remote server and access them from any device, either by streaming the tunes or downloading them."

And Mossberg appears to like it, having all the music in his collection available on all his devices by using MusicMatch. I've subscribed and I too am pretty pleased with it. In my opinion, especially with all the various tips that are coming out from a variety of sources to make it even more useable, it is well worth the convenience to pay roughly 30 bucks per year for this service. What are your thoughts on MusicMatch?

Simple Trick to Upgrade Low Resolution Music With Music Match

"Yesterday we walked you through everything you need to know about using iTunes Match. Today, Macworld highlights a super-fast new trick to help you upgrade all your low-resolution music to the service's excellent 256 kbps AAC files."

So simple but clever. Just have faith that the music will still be there when you delete these old tracks. At least that is what Macworld says will happen.


Just What Do Those Music Match Symbols Mean?

"If you don't know by now, Apple has officially opened up their iTunes Match service to the public, bringing with it 256-kbps AAC DRM-free copies of your non-iTunes purchased music for $25 a year."

And what you also might not know is what all the new symbols mean. Well, ease your fears since this article gives you the run down on what they all mean. You can also find a handy chart at Apple. Apple has also posted several guides about troubleshooting, subscribing, adding computers and deleting songs from iCloud. Now if they would only make deleting pictures from the photostream easier I'd be happy!


iTunes Match, A Review

"Earlier today, Apple finally released iTunes Match, about one month later than the service was originally expected. Now that it is here, consider this our first look at Apple's highly-anticipated new product."

Here is a brief run through of how the service works, the main point being you have to update iTunes to 10.5.1 before you even get started. I don't have a huge amount of music, but for those that do, this might take some time to run before it is complete. I wonder how many will hit their data cap while using this service? Or is that even a concern?
