Idolator Presents Digging With Producer Jeff Bhasker

If you listen closely enough, you just might detect a common link between the best songs on your iPod/iPhone/Android/Zune these days — it’s a distinctive sound, as if pop music had been imagined by a psychedelic rock keyboardist playing in a jazz club floating in deep space. It’s the sound of producer Jeff Bhasker, whose…

The Zune HD: Ooh, It’s So Shiny

Microsoft’s much-maligned media player, the Zune, has announced a new version of its product, and it’s kind of iPhone-looking–I don’t see any brown anywhere in the above pic, which is a good sign. This iteration, scheduled to hit stores in the fall, will also have a Web browser, meaning that after years and years, Microsoft…

Why Tech Pundits Should Just Shut Up About The Music Business And Maybe Do Some Research For Once In Their Lives

We’ve taken aim at Wired‘s Panglossian attitude when it comes to the relationship between the Internet and the music business before, mainly because the powers that be at Conde Nast’s ever-shrinking tech bible just make it too easy.

Oh, Techwriterpaws

It’s always so cute when tech types get in a lather about one of their pet causes–here, it’s Greg Sandoval at CNet penning an open letter to Steve Jobs begging him to drop DRM on the files in the iTunes Store, which to his mind looks “a little shabby” these days because of Apple’s copy-protectio…

The Microsoft Zune Releases Version 3425.6

Microsoft, whose Zune player has never found a foothold against Apple’s iPod behemoth despite reinventing itself into something cuter and less bloggy, has yet again changed the way it sells and plays music. Although how much of a change this new model is depends on how much of a future you think the whole “subscriptio…

But it’s nice to see that they’re still trying, even if they’ve lost

The Zune Unveils Another Venue You’re Not Cool Enough To Get Into

Continuing its attempts to firm up its position as “the No. 1 digital-music player that isn’t an iPod,” the Zune has opened its own venue in Los Angeles in order to assure you of its status among “tastemakers.” Sure, it’s an office for Microsoft employees during the day, but at night, it’s LA’s hottest music…

Joy Division rocked futilely in the face of a cold, uncaring world before its leader could take it no longer.
