    I can’t wait to hear you rap battling 🙂

    But seriously- mobile music is the US is going to be hampered until the revenue model is altered. The data networks are not there quite yet, but they will be. But the pricing for data services remains too high for mobile music services to really attract many users, especially with the closed networks.

    Sorry for the diversion, I know the audience is home recording and independent music more than anything else, but I just think people should re-think how customers use music over mobile phones.

    I think something like the podcast Indie 6 (thanx!) would work well- mobile music at this point should be more around short-term diversions, clips, shows, etc. Streamed podcasts would work great 🙂

    What the heck is a “freestyle rap service”?

    Freestyle Rap Service…great question. According to the press release, the service “.. features the beats from many of today’s most popular songs and allows subscribers to “freestyle” rap to the instrumental tracks.”

    So, I’m assuming your phone basically loops instrumental tracks while you make up your own lyrics. Er, that sounds sorta like a simple ringtone, doesn’t it? …It’s all about the marketing spin, I guess..!

    Taylor…trust me, you do NOT want to hear me rap battle. Migita-migita-mack is all I have to say.

    Great points regarding wireless technology. You know, all of this is really moot, anyway. Once Google’s telecom network is up and running, we’ll all be using Google PDA/phone/chat/IM/mp3 player/tv remote control devices anyway… 😉

    But you’re right. Mobile pricing models in the US (pay-per-play/use) are screwed up. We should learn from the models used in Europe and Japan, where mobile is flourishing.

    Enjoy Indie 6 podcasts! I love the show.
