I tried it
And thought it was pretty good, add to library works well and the 'radio' stuff is OK too. I already used Google Music so it a natural step.
For £8 you get offline access to all the music that you have added to your library in the mobile and desktop clients. This is slightly cheaper than Spotify's service.
Need a nice way of integrating this into my Hi-Fi. Simplest is PC with browser -> USB DAC (HRT Music Streamer II) -> Amp. But would be nice to use Android as remote control.
They are just taking the piss now
I think this is just willy waggling in Apple's face. "Look at us! You can't even get basic directions and locations correct and we're mapping the underside of the frikkin' sea!"
And long may Google keep at this, too.
Re: Remote Control
Windows now has a WinRS (remote shell), for all your remote text-based login needs! It's not enabled by default, you have to first configure WinRM - easiest way = winrm quickconfig
You have also got remote PoSH too if you want it.
Re: Can you use Jelly Bean without a Google Account?
Yes - the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) does not contain any of the Google applications. Not a great experience though.
I also like
I am a huge fan of the RasPi project.. even if the price of the 'B' is going to be around £50, they are still a bargain. I have LOADS of uses dreamed up for these things, from home automation to auto distribution.
The hope is that these things will go on to be as (more?) ubiquitous as the BBC Micro. I hope they manage it. If they do achieve this then it will be great to own a bit of history associated with the project. I'm not bidding though..
Cyanogenmod 7 runs on the desire. Ok, there's no Sense, but it's no great loss.
For thosethat don't know, CM is based on the Android open source project and currently runs 2.3.4, the latest Gingerbread.
