Smart TV- Was It Really The Must-Have Connected Device of 2014?

Last year we posted the Infographic below, based on data around Holiday season buying trends. Our prediction was that Smart TVs were going to be the must-have connected devices of 2014. Were we right?

Well, according to a report released by Futuresource Consulting (available here) by the end of the year 30% of homes in developed regions will own a Smart TV. This follows trends in our research from last year and sees penetration growing by a further 10% from 2013.

Will Smart TVs continue to be the must-have connected device this coming year? With Google and Sony stepping up their game in the market recently, you would assume Apple won’t be too far behind, and it’s hard to imagine the growth slowing.

Check out the Infographic from last year.

Help: How to Move Songs In and Out of MyMusicCloud

Odds are you have more than 250 songs in your music collection, but you still want them all at your fingertips, because you never know when a romantic moment or a boring subway outage or a spontaneous office dance party will occur.

We get this, which is why we give you the power to move 250 songs in and out of our cloud storage and into your listening queue whenever you like. It’s always completely free to store all your music at MyMusicCloud. You can take advantage of our service and enjoy access to 250 songs at a time, or upgrade to our Unlimited membership for just $40 / year (less than the cost of 1 latte a month).

Tired of Calvin Harris or Frank Ocean? When your 250 songs get stale, simply upload new ones, or download existing songs from the cloud. Here’s how:

First, import your music collection into MyMusicCloud with our automatic sync agent (See “How to Import Your Music“), so you can listen to them on any computer, tablet, Smart TV or mobile device, regardless of operating system, with our app.

After logging in via the web, you’ll see a tab labeled “CLOUD” in the top navigation bar to the right of “PLAYLISTS.” That’s where your stored tracks live until you call them down for action. (If you don’t see CLOUD, don’t panic. It just means you haven’t imported more than 250 songs.) To see them, click CLOUD. Several tabs appear in the far left-hand column, indicating the number that are “Playable” and those that are “Stored.”

If you already have 250 songs in rotation, you’ll need to free up space by clicking the Playable tab, hovering over any track and clicking the ” – ” icon to send it to the cloud. To make any cloud-based song playable, simply press Cloud, hover over a title and click the “+” icon to the right.

That’s all it takes to refresh your playlists. To see more “How to” posts like this one, simply type “Help” in the search field in the upper right corner of this blog. Happy listening.

Don’t Wait for Apple Watch. Get the Free U2 Album on Your Wrist Now!

How cool was Apple’s Tuesday product event? The tech giant blew the roof off by announcing newer and bigger iPhones, introducing the Apple watch, and then bringing out Bono and the boys to give away U2’s latest album, “Songs of Innocence,” free to iPhone and iTunes users.

It’s all good news for “iFans.” Except for. Well, it’s just that … Now, you have to camp outside an Apple store, or fight the trolls online, to pre-order your iPhone 6 (starting today), and just pray to the ghost of Steve Jobs that they don’t sell out before they ship on Sept. 19. And those cool Apple watches? They’re not out till 2015.

Or — just a thought — you could check out the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smart watches, which are already in stores and do more things than the Apple watch. Both have sleek square faces, but instead of a clunky knob on the side like Apple’s, the Gear 2 has a button on the watch face, plus a 2-megapixel camera. (Apple’s watch doesn’t offer a camera.)

Besides enabling you to place calls and text, the Samsung Gear watches free you to listen to your entire digital music collection anywhere with the MyMusicCloud app. Our free music storage app works on- and off-line, and syncs your music across any smart device – tablet, phone, laptop, Smart TV – regardless of brand (Apple, Android, Blackberry, Windows, etc.).

With a Bluetooth headset, you can kick it to Kenny Chesney, or whomever you love, via your Samsung Gear 2 and cell phone. And that free U2 album? You can only hear it in iTunes, right? Nope.

Once you’ve downloaded “Songs of Innocence” to iTunes, you can easily add it to your MyMusicCloud library and listen on any smart device. Just launch the MyMusicCloud app and hit the “Import Music” button (it looks like an arrow pointing up). Once you’ve installed our Sync Agent software, it automatically imports it for you.

Or you can manually select the album from your iTunes music folder on your hard drive and import it. That way, your music is always together in one place, not scattered around different devices. See how easy it is to listen to your music on all your gadgets in our demo video below.

Or you could just stick with only Apple devices, and wait, because waiting is cool too, right?
