From Digital Music News, Grooveshark has been found guilty of massive copyright infringement. The details of what the company did are pretty shocking. I am the wife of a talented musician whose music was illegally used by Grooveshark, We not only lost music sales income, but had to go as far as to hire an attorney to deal with the company’s infringement. Here’s a link to his wonderful holiday jazz album. 🙂
The FCC is considering rules that will change Television, from Mashable. This has the abiltiy to breathe new life into a company like Aereo. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been able to get certain channels since they made the change to digital broadcast!
Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news.
For a limited time, Amazon is offering 27 apps for free in the Amazon App store. The offerings include tools for productivity like OfficeSuite Professional and Swype keyboard as well as camera apps and games. Many of these have been offered free in the past, but I did manage to find a few new ones.
The offer says limited time and I couldn’t find a end date for the promotion.
The new app is designed for phones, although it is working on some tablets. It is a somewhat complicated install procedure because you first must install the Amazon Shopping app, then download the one for Instant Video.
I was able to install the app on my Samsung Note 2 with no problem. I could not, however, get it to work on my Samsung Note 8.
Both Teleread and The Digital Read have posted workarounds for the flash video problem in the past. Today, the MobileRead forum led me to another install method detailed on the Droid Life site. This install involves directly downloading the Instant Video .apk file from Amazon.
I tried the Droid Life method and it installed correctly on my Samsung Note 8 with no problem. 🙂
Hopefully, one of the methods will enable you to get the app working correctly on your device.
