Spotify hijacks Uber speakers

Partnership formed to allow playlists in taxis

Car service company, Uber, has partnered with music streaming service Spotify to allow playlists to be played in Uber taxis.

Customers will be able to use their premium Spotify account to choose playlists and then hear them through the speakers of their Uber taxi.

The offer begins on 21 November, in ten global cities including Sydney. Uber said it will be rolling out the service to more cities in the coming weeks.

At launch, the cities to have access to the service are: London, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Nashville, Mexico City, Singapore, Stockholm, Toronto and Sydney.

The changes will be available with the latest update of the Uber app. Uber will also be launching a competition to allow customers to have ‘ride-alongs’ with music artists. Participants confirmed so far are Andrew W.K., The Sam Willows, Ximena Sariñana, Ansiktet, Professor Green, Diplo, Matt and Kim, Ricki Lee, Kevin Drew and Jake Owen.

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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

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.
