Things have heated up a lot in the online music streaming business over the past few months, including but not limited to some very big acquisitions. Google wants to be an established player in this niche as well. It is reportedly readying a new subscription based YouTube music service which will have improved recommendation features thanks to its acquisition of Songza. Multiple reports have claimed recently that Google may have been interested in acquiring Spotify.
A lot of interesting information came in after Microsoft announced its fourth fiscal quarter earnings. It all but confirmed that the Surface Mini launch was yanked at the last time, confirming all of the suspicions we had about it. The company’s CFO also touched upon the Surface Pro 3′s performance, claiming that sales of Microsoft’s new tablet are outperforming that of its predecessors.
