The Sonos/MOG Marriage is so much Win.

Recently, MOG and Sonos announced a partnership that allows Sonos owners to subscribe and listen to music provided by huge catalog the MOG has. As God as my witness, when I got my Sonos units, I said to anyone who would listen, “The only thing this kit is missing is MOG integration, when that happens, I will be in audiophile heaven”. Well heaven has come, because I have been using the Sonos/MOG combo for a week or so, and all is right in the world.

ZipCar launches Android App to Help You Own a Car, One Hour at a Time

For those of you city dwellers who do not own a vehicle, but would like to have access to one from time to time, Zip Car offers you just that with the ability to rent a vehicle for an hour or a day. I first saw the Zip Car model when visiting home in Boston, and I thought it was a great idea, but it was lacking a mobile way to reserve a vehicle. Oh sure, if you own an iPhone, you could use the app there, but since I like having control of the things I own, I of course use Android. Well, Zip Car heard the feedback of no mobile app on the Android platform, and have released a beta app for use with Google’s mobile OS.

Sonos, Where Have You Been All My Life? (Sonos App and Hardware Review)

Before I begin my gushing discourse of the love I have for Sonos and it’s newly minted Android controller app, I have to diclose the fact that Sonos sent me a review unit to use, of which that I do not have to return to them. So simply put, I have to disclose that they gave me free stuff. That being said, they did not need to buy my love whatsoever, because using Sonos for me is like sitting a fat man down to a 15 course meal, with some magic thrown on top that makes it feel like he never gets full.
