iLike Debuts Full-Song Playback, with a Catch

iLike, a social music discovery service, is celebrating it has surpassed 30 million registered users today by offering a new feature: full-length song playback via Rhapsody.

iLike, a social music discovery service, is celebrating it has surpassed 30 million registered users today by offering a new feature: full-length song playback via Rhapsody.

Now here's the catch. iLike said only its users who also happen to subscribe to Rhapsody's Unlimited music service will be able to listen to unlimited playbacks of streams. All non-Rhapsody subscribers only get a measly 25 playbacks per month. The other option if you choose not to sign up is to listen to 30 second song samples. To me this offer is akin to offering a panting dog a taste of water instead of giving it the whole bowl to drink.

Of course the offer sounded too good to be true.

In addition to supporting full-song playback iLike said its service will soon be available on its Facebook music application.

As part of iLike's deal with artists and music labels it royalties will be paid each time their music is played via "Rhapsody's existing agreements." With 30 million members that could add up for music industry.

Now all you have to is get your garage band onto iLike and you'll be set to graduate to your living room.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
