Thumbplay Music Comes out of Beta

Thumbplay is formerly announcing their cloud-based ThumbPlay Music application/service for Android handsets.  The $10/month subscription service gives users unlimited access to over 8 million tracks through all the major record labels and an additional 25,000 independent labels.

Features of ThumbPlay include personal music collections,  a Playlist Genie which recommends songs based on your favorites, iTunes importing, and of course the ability to search by artist, song, and genre.  A future release of the Android version will include offline playback using caching.  This feature will allow for users to listen to stations and playlists in places where there is no WiFi or data connection.

We’ve been getting rave reviews from our Android users in Beta, especially when they employ the companion app on PC and see the power of having their complete music collections and playlists in-sync.  We’re thrilled to deliver a music service worthy of discerning Android fans.” – Evan Schwartz, CEO and Co-Founder of Thumbplay

Monthly subscriptions are available for $9.99/month with a free “no strings attached” three-day trial for all new users.  The beta version of ThumbPlay Music has racked up over 50,000 downloads since it hit the Android Market.

Samsung Smart TV’s are going Google.

I consider Samsung to be one of the pioneers of this generation of smart/web TV’s. They weren’t running Google TV when I last saw them, but the sets were amazing nonetheless. Bringing about some really neat add-ons, like a camera so you could Skype with friends and Family. It didn’t seem like there was a bunch of room for expansion or further development though, which is what Android seems to have mastered. So it seems only logical that Samsung would take the success we have enjoyed from the Galaxy S line to their consumer electronics devices

    Anyone know how this stacks up to Rhapsody? I've been using Rhap for years and am reluctant to change unless there's a good reason.
