A Peek at the Google Music Beta Install Process

This is a guest post by Nadia Jones.

Those of you in the United States might have noticed that Google Music Beta has started to get some buzz on the internet. Invites have gone out wave after wave, and as one of the people to get an early look at the application, I have to say that it's definitely worth your time to get in on this as soon as possible. I've used it for a few days and can say that it's greatly simplified my music experience. I no longer have to worry about which songs are on my work computer or home computer, nor do I have to carry around my iPod and my Android, as I can access my Google music on the phone as well.

Perhaps the greatest thing about Google Music Beta is that the install process hardly takes any time at all, which is what we've come to expect from the people at Google.

Once you get the invite in your email, click on the link and Google will take you through a series of installation steps: you will electronically accept some terms, install the Music Manager program, and then upload your music. After that, you're ready to listen.

After you agree to the terms and to another privacy agreement, you'll be asked to select want kind of free songs you'd like. This is a great little feature that allows you to sample new music in these genres so you can decide if you want to purchase the entire album.

How to add free songs to music library

After you select the music you want, you will be prompted to download the Music Manager installer, which will run on your computer and install the Manager that you'll need to be able to access Google Music Beta.

After the installer runs, you'll sign in with your Google username and password, and then you'll be prompted to upload songs from one of the media players that the program will detect on your computer.

If you have a lot of music, this uploading process can take a long time. I don't have too much music, so it took me about five minutes, but a friend of mine had to leave the application running all evening in order to get his entire huge music library uploaded. Just be aware that the upload process can take quite some time.

But, don't worry, it's well worth the wait, as once everything is ready, you'll be able to access the Google Music Beta dashboard, which is incredibly intuitive and easy to use.

And there you go! All of your music is at your fingertips; you can access your music from up to eight devices, including Android phones. If you haven't requested an invite, do so now!

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…
