    Listen, we’re all for waiting until the last possible minute, but that time is now. If you happen to be looking for a deal on Google’s fancy new music service, the clock is ticking. Once June 30th rolls around, Google Play Music All Access’s $7.99 price tag will bump up to the standard $9.99 a month. That’s a full $2 a month more for access to those millions of unlimited songs. You can sign up at the source link below — that same page can also hook you up with a free 30-day trial, if not paying money is your thing.

  • Topographic maps illustrate where Twitter's bird flies highest

    Topographic maps illustrate where Twitter's bird flies highest

    Not every Twitter user geotags their musings, but there are enough who do to generate some very insightful data. On its blog today, Twitter shared images from Data Visualization Scientist Nicolas Belmonte, who created topographic maps visualizing the density of geotagged tweets. The result is striking, as tweets clearly correlate with roads, geographic features and even lines of public transit. In addition to the blog’s stills, you can futz around with interactive maps of New York, San Francisco and… Istanbul. When you realize the implications of all those tweets from the Bay Bridge, it’s frightening enough to consider taking BART across the Bay instead.

  • Cox flareWatch beta brings IPTV with 60 HD channels, cloud DVR for $35 monthly

    Cox flareWatch TV beta brings IPTV with 60 HD channels, cloud DVR for $35 monthly

    While everyone tries to figure out what the future of TV looks like, Variety reports Cox Cable has crossed over to offering internet TV service to customers in Orange County. flareWatch beta testers can buy a Fanhattan Fan TV set-top box for $99 (up to three per household) and sign up for a TV package that features 90 live TV channels (60 in HD) and includes the usual favorites like ESPN / ESPN2, AMC, CNN, Nickelodeon and TNT, with video on-demand coming soon. DVR recordings take place in the cloud, with 30 hours of storage available for each subscriber.

    There is one notable limitation however, as with cable company provided TiVo DVRs, streaming services like Hulu and Netflix are not available. Cox already cloud based storage under the MyFlare brand name, and Variety also mentions the company plans to expand it with music and game services. Other providers have hinted at offering IPTV options and Comcast launched an IPTV test at MIT, but this is the first one publicly available from a major company. If you live in the area, demonstrations are available at several locations, check out the site at the link below and a preview video after the break.

    DNP Verizon Samsung Galaxy S 4 32GB

    Verizon customers — now’s your chance to grab Samsung’s latest flagship device with more internal storage. The carrier has started selling the 32GB Galaxy S 4 online, giving buyers another choice besides the 16GB version sold on its website for $199. Shipments aren’t promised until July 3rd, but you can buy the 32GB Galaxy S 4 right now for $299 — assuming you’re interested in paying $100 more for storage on a phone that already features expandable memory. If you’d rather shell out more money for an unlocked bootloader, though, Verizon also sells the Developer Edition at the lofty price of $650 each.
