In other news, HELL has officially frozen over.
It's been rumored for years, but now, the streaming music service that took over Europe looks like it's finally here. How will it stack up against its younger, scrappier cousins Rdio, MOG, and arguable MusicBeta by Google? Well tell you all about it this weekend, after we've been able to give it a run around the block.
In the meantime, here's the official press release, straight from the great streaming gods in the sky:
New York, July 13, 2011 - Spotfy, the award-winning digital music service loved by millions of Europeans, will become available tomorrow morning in the United States by invitation and subscription. Spotify is a new way to listen to and manage your music, discover new tracks and share songs and playlists with friends – music whenever you want it, wherever you are.
Be one of the first people in the U.S. to experience Spotify by signing up at www.spotify.com.
Spotify will announce more details at 8:00 AM EST.
So there you have it. The Mayans were SO freaking wrong.
The world officially ends at 8:00 AM tomorrow. It's been fun people!!!
