Spotify Puts New Caps on Free Music (and Knows You’ll Hate It)

first_img9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… European upstart music service Spotify just announced that it is putting new limits on its millions of free account holders. “[I]t’s vital that we continue offering an on-demand free service to you and millions more like you,” the company said in its announcement, “but to make that possible we have to put some limits in place going forward.”CNet’s Greg Sandoval reported yesterday that some new limits were coming, based on unnamed but clearly well-informed sources. Free account holders today are able to listen to up to 20 hours of music on-demand, song by song and album by album, each month. The new limits will allow 20 hours for the first 6 months of any user’s new account. After 6 months, free listening will be cut down to 10 hours. That means 20 minutes on average, every day of the month, for free. That’s still generous, as far as I’m concerned.The company will offer free 30 day trials of unlimited listening for the month of May. Here in the United States, Spotify is generally unavailable.Spotify is a joy to use and free account holders are sure to be unhappy about the changes (maybe they should help pay the bills at the company and be happy for the service).Spotify head of communications Jim Butcher Tweeted just hours before the announcement was made that his gumshield (like a mouth protector for boxers) was in. Spotify UI designer Tobias Ahlin said just after the news went public: “This is a day when I’ll be a sad panda and you’ll try to hit me with sticks.” Spotify Chief Product Officer Gustav Söderström : “Very tough day today…”Good luck guys, and thanks for all the music. marshall kirkpatrick 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#music#news#web center_img 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Related Posts 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe Applast_img read more

How to Upgrade Your Targets

first_imgTake a look at your target list.Some of the “prospects” on that list have been there for years. Many of them experienced changes in their business and no longer buy much of what you sell. A few of them don’t buy at all. They’re no longer prospects.Some of these “prospects” might buy a lot of what you sell, but they don’t value what you do enough to pay you for it. They buy on price alone, and you don’t compete on price. Because you can’t sell to them at a price they’re willing to pay, they’re no longer prospects either.Some of your “prospects” have needs that you can’t meet (even outside of price). They need delivery terms that don’t work for you, or payment terms that you can’t meet. Or maybe the way they need a solution work isn’t something you can deliver. They’re no longer prospects or leads.Target Companies That Buy NowTo upgrade your target list you need to build a list of dream clients and prospects that use what you sell now. Companies that are buying what you sell have orders now. You can only get orders from people that have orders to give you.Target Companies That Value What You DoYou also need to upgrade your list by identifying targets that value what is you do. Clients that value what you do will expect you to create that value, and they’ll also allow you to capture some of the value that you create.Target Companies That Don’t Need Exceptional ExceptionsIt’s tough to let go of targets that buy what you sell because you can’t meet their needs. You want to make exceptions, win the business, and move on. But sometimes your company’s business model, your processes, and the other unique ways you do business won’t allow for those exceptions. You’re better off targeting prospects that don’t need exceptions that you can’t make.Upgrade your target list. Eliminate the old stuff that hasn’t been good for years. Fill it back up with real leads and prospects that do buy what you sell, value what you do, and for whom your work will make a difference. Get the Free eBook!

Salgacoar take on Shivajians

first_imgVasco (Goa), Mar 31 (PTI) Salgaocar FC would look to move to the top half of the table with a win when they take on DSK Shivajians in an I-League match here tomorrow. Salgaocar got a fresh breath of air after they won their last match against Shillong Lajong to move to fifth place with 12 points from 12 matches, the same as Mumbai FC, Shivajians and Aizwal FC. A win tomorrow will take them to fourth place. A win tomorrow will also take the Shivajians, who have played one match less than Salgaocar, to fourth place, displacing Sporting club de Goa to fifth place. The Shivajians have come into the match with a win against East Bengal and will be looking to continue to keep the momentum going, something they have struggled to do throughout the campaign. With skipper Dipanda leading the attack from the front and Douhou Pierre playing the role of an attacking midfielder, the visitors will be looking to breach the rival defence and make amends of their loss at home. The two-week break will help both the teams to recover from injury. Goalkeeper Subrata Paul, who missed the last match due to a finger injury, is back in the side for the visitors. Duffy, who is the leading scorer for the home team, too has recovered from his groin injury. Salgaocar, who won their first match against Shivajians under coach Santosh Kashyap, are expecting a tough fight tomorrow against the visitors. “The win against East Bengal have raised our confidence and we will have to remain focus against them if we are to win tomorrow,” stated Kashyap. Shivajians coach Derrick Pereira too is expecting a tough challenge from his former club. “The team is performing well after initial set back and tomorrow I am looking for an entertaining contest from both the sides. Playing under hot sun will be really challenging as we love to play under floodlight,” he said. “We have struggled initially, not having much time to work with the players especially those who played in the ISL. But now that the team is shaping well and doing good, I want them to continue to win and keep ourselves away from the relegation which is our main object,” stated Pereira.

If Clippers’ Sterling Stays, Rivers Goes

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Coach Doc Rivers has said he’ll resign from the Los Angeles Clippers if Donald Sterling remains the owner, the interim CEO testified, saying such a move would be a “disaster” for the franchise.“If Mr. Sterling continues as owner, he does not want to continue as coach,” Richard Parsons said in court on July 22nd, recounting recent conversations with Rivers.His testimony was a rare foray into the basketball side of the Clippers at a probate-court trial that has focused on the narrow question of whether Sterling’s wife, Shelly, can sell the team for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer as the NBA looks to force Donald Sterling from the league over racist statements.Shelly Sterling is scheduled to return to the stand on July 22nd as the final witness, with the two sides returning for closing arguments next week.Parsons, a former Chief Executive at Time Warner and Citigroup who took over leadership of the Clippers in May during the media blitz surrounding the banishment of Sterling, said under questioning by Ballmer’s lawyer that the departure of Rivers would “accelerate the death spiral” of the Clippers.“If Doc were to leave, that would be a disaster,” Parsons said. “Doc is the father figure, the one who leads.” Team representatives said Rivers had no comment on the testimony.Parsons said he fears there would also be an exodus of key players, including team captain Chris Paul, who heads the NBA players union.The judge stopped Parsons from giving an account of his conversations with Paul when an NBA lawyer objected over privacy issues.Parsons said corporate sponsors and season ticket holders would likely be the next to leave. “If your coach leaves, if your players don’t want to play with you, what do you have?” Parsons asked. “If your sponsors leave and the fans leave, it’s going to spiral down and down.”Parsons also said he doesn’t believe that anyone will offer as much money for the team as Ballmer. That opinion was seconded by witness Anwar Zakkour, an investment banker who helped broker the deal for Ballmer’s purchase and said he never expected a bid so big.Explaining why Ballmer would have bid over the value of the team, Zakkour said, “It was a trophy asset.”“This is the highest price ever achieved for a sports team,” he said. “However way you count it, this is an amazing price that anyone should be satisfied with.”Parsons and Zakkour said that if the NBA seized the team and put it up for auction, the price would drop because there would be less certainty about the team’s future.Outside court, Sterling’s lawyer, Bobby Samini, said the billionaire would persist in his opposition to the sale because “he feels he was wronged” by the NBA. “He has no desire to destroy the team,” Samini said. “He is fighting to protect his rights.”Later, Sterling fired off another legal volley, filing a new lawsuit against his wife, the NBA and league commissioner Adam Silver that alleges fraud, breach of contract, unfair business practices and infliction of emotional distress.He claimed, among other things, that he was tricked into being examined by psychiatrists to establish whether he was mentally competent. The NBA declined to comment on the new lawsuit.Shelly Sterling’s attorney called it a “frivolous, last ditch act of desperation” in a statement.“This action shows once more how obsessed he is with ruining a record-setting $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers,” attorney Pierce O’Donnell said, “a sale that would solve the problems his racist rant started three months ago.”TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

India vs New Zealand: MS Dhoni likely to miss 4th ODI, Shubman Gill set for debut

first_img19-year-old Shubman Gill is all set to make his senior national team debut on Thursday when India and New Zealand meet in Hamilton for the fourth ODI in the ongoing five-match series.Gill, who was included in the squad after KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya were sent home over the Koffee With Karan controversy, is set to take captain Virat Kohli’s place in the playing XI. Kohli was rested for the last two ODIs and the upcoming T20I series, starting February 6.India are expected to make a couple of changes to the match-winning XI from the third ODI as MS Dhoni is unlikely to return for the Hamilton tie. The India wicketkeeper-batsman had missed the third ODI in Mount Maunganui with a sore hamstring.Dhoni was spotted training in Hamilton on Wednesday but the team management is opting for a cautious approach and wants him to completely recover from the injury ahead of a hectic limited-overs season, India Today has learnt.Dhoni was in fine form in India’s historic 2-1 win over Australia as he hit three back-to-back half-centuries and won the Man of the Series award. In the only innings (second ODI in Mount Maunganui) he has played in New Zealand, Dhoni made a 33-ball unbeaten 48.In Dhoni’s absence, Dinesh Karthik will continue the wicket-keeping duties and Shubman Gill comes into the XI as a top-order batsman. It remains to be seen where Gill will bat on Thursday as Ambati Rayudu may get a promotion to No. 3 spot.advertisementShubman Gill was one of the stars of India’s U-19 World Cup win in 2018. The young Punjab batsman has gone on to impress at the domestic level and A tours. He scored 728 runs, including a classy double ton, from five matches at an average of 104.00 in the Ranji Trophy 2018-19 season.Speaking to India Today, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar insisted Shubman Gill get opportunities in New Zealand.”Well because the No.3 spot is vacant, I would want to give Shubman Gill a game, give him a couple of games and see how he fares. If he gets to bat, you will get a fair idea how he is taking to international cricket,” Gavaskar said.Captain Virat Kohli had also heaped praise on Shubman Gill while talking up the rich assembly line of youngsters waiting for their opportunities in the senior national team.”I think there are some outstanding talents. We saw Prithvi Shaw grab the opportunity with both hands. Shubman is a very exciting talent and I saw him bat in the nets and I was like wow I was not even 10 percent of that when I was 19,” Kohli had said earlier this week.Gill had said his heart had started beating faster when he received the news of his maiden India call-up earlier this month.”It was late in the night. My heart started beating faster. The messages started pouring in and I rushed to tell my father. It was a special moment,” said Gill.Also Read | Wasn’t even 10 per cent of what Shubman Gill is when I was 19: Virat KohliAlso Read | Rohit Sharma becomes cameraman as Yuzvendra Chahal interviews India’s young brigadeAlso See:last_img read more
