Editorial: the new SoundCloud is optimized for listeners, not uploaders

Review SoundCloud relaunches, aiming for audience scale

When it was founded in 2007, SoundCloud was mostly focused on allowing file-sharing of original audio tracks, and basic cooperation among artists. The 2 co-founders came from popular music backgrounds; undoubtedly, in very early interviews they contrasted their fledgling platform to an artist’s version of Flickr or Vimeo. From the start, SoundCloud’s embeddable waveforms differentiated it from MySpace, which was soon to begin its vertiginous fall from authority.

With this week’s relaunch, SoundCloud strives to even more than a gleaming redesign, though it certainly emphasized the silver wax for this refresh. The brand-new SoundCloud has reshaped its function set, formalizing an organic development into a broad listening platform. It is more than a rejuvenated website; it is a new item targeted point-blank at the earphone set instead of the mixing board group. Have artists been marginalized in the new and enlarged vision? And for the popular music supporters the site expects to attract, does SoundCloud work as a paying attention station?

Logitech outs 2 cordless mice and an external trackpad, all optimized for Windows 8

Logitech outs two wireless mice and an external trackpad, all optimized for Windows 8

It’ll be an additional two weeks prior to Windows 8 PCs go on sale, but if you like, you can easily hand select out your gesture-enabled peripherals now. Logitech just announced 2 cordless mice and an external trackpad, all enhanced to support motions in Windows 8. Beginning with the mice, the Touch Mouse T620 has the same design as the M600 revealed earlier this year, except it supports Win 8 motions from the box. (The M600 will get a software update enabling it to work the very same method.) Just like its ancestor, the T620’s whole leading surface is touch-enabled, which implies you could do things like swipe the right side for the Beauty Bar, or swipe from the left to rotate through open programs. You could additionally double tap with one finger to go back to the Start Screen, and double tap with 2 fingers to show the computer.

Proceeding, the Zone Touch Mouse T400 has a touch strip that you can utilize to move up and down through pages, along with scroll through the live tiles on the Start Screen. In a radiant twist, though, the touch strip itself is included 2 buttons, which you can easily make use of to toggle open apps or bring up the Start Display, depending on which end you push. Finally, the Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 is a Magic Trackpad-style touchpadwith a large glass surface, which appeared impeccably receptive during our short hands-on with it. Unlike the 2 mice, which run on AAs, the T650 has a rechargeable battery, which you could re-juice over USB.

All of these add-ons use proprietary 2.4 GHz cordless innovation as an alternative of Bluetooth, which means you’ll require a complimentary USB port to accommodate the accompanying transceiver. The dongle can combine with up to six Logitech peripherals simultaneously, however that’s a bummer if you additionally take place to possess gear made by a Microsoft or HP. As you might have guessed, these are appropriate with Windows Computers just, though you could use them with Win 7 if you so picked. Search for all 3 this month, with the Touchpad T650 priced $ 80, the Touch Mouse at $ 70 and the T400 at $ 50.

Sony Ericsson to showcase over 20 new games optimized for Xperia Play

One thing we criticized in our Xperia Play review was the lack of games specifically adapted to the handheld’s controls. So it’s only fair to mention that a bevy of new titles is on the horizon — some old, some new, but all optimized for this specific brand of button-mashing. Headline acts include Minecraft (a port we’ve already seen in action) as well as Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard and Battlefield Bad Company 2, both of which have both been accruing headshots on iOS devices for a while now. Hit the PR after the break for the full list of titles, but don’t expect much in the way of pricing or availability. Those details will be announced at E3 next week, when the Xperia Play will have to compete for attention against the Sony NGP. Guess we’ll patiently have to twiddle our thumbs until it’s time to twiddle them with vigor.

RIM: BlackBerry PlayBook battery life is still being optimized, won’t cause delays

If you’ve been keeping an ear to the techie ground, you’ll probably have heard some analyst chatter suggesting RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook may be delayed due to issues relating to its supposedly poor battery life. That scuttlebutt has now turned out to be mostly unfounded, with RIM clarifying the situation through a communiqué sent to Erictric:

“Any testing or observation of battery life to date by anyone outside of RIM would have been performed using pre-beta units that were built without power management implemented. RIM is on track with its schedule to optimize the BlackBerry PlayBook’s battery life and looks forward to providing customers with a professional grade tablet that offers superior performance with comparable battery life.”

To be sure, it’s not an outright denial that there may be PlayBooks floating about with disappointing battery performance, but the immaturity of the software on them is clearly such as to invalidate any conclusions drawn. Perhaps more important than the imprecise discussion of battery longevity (what does “comparable” even mean in this context?) is the note that the company is still on track to complete its software optimizations and deliver its first tablet on schedule. Guess we can all quit worrying now.

Intel Alleges Windows Phone 7 Not Optimized for High Performance, Won’t Support It
For those of you who haven’t read today’s Moorestown Architecture article I’d highly recommend it. This is quite possibly one of the biggest introductions we’ve seen in the past couple of years. I’d say that by the end of 2011 we could be looking at a dramatically different smartphone landscape. One gem I snuck into the article was the fact that Intel has no current plans to support Windows …
