Mperia Radio

November 27th, 2005 | admin, music, people I know

Because I am special — yes, special like the Olympics, thank you — I’m beta-testing The Mperia Player for Josh & Frank at It’s very beta, a bit skippy in places, but generally working fine and well worth the investigation.

They asked me not to have it loading in the main page, so that I don’t smoke their servers on Monday afternoon, so you’ll find it as a pop-up player from the link in the top left menubar. Pop it up, have a play with it. You’ll find that the player lets you go direct to a musician’s page, and also lets you buy the hifi version of any track straight away, if you’re armed with a BitPass token (and if you’ve got money in a PayPal account, there’s really no excuse for not having a BitPass token).

Anyway. Carry on. I’ll probably change the mix on the player once a month…

It also presents a little linky graphic thingy that lets you shoot the mp3′s URL to your It’s just a gorgeously simple little idea. You should be able to use it to sample the Apparat Programmes, instead of using the flash player that was in the menu bar.

Why the fuck does Soundblox work fine on everyone else’s site, but when I try to run it in the sidebar the site grinds to a halt and I get a warning that it’s fucking with Flash before everything dies?

“If anyone receives a shirt in error, or fails to receive a shirt that they ordered, please email me right away and I will correct this problem as quickly as possible.
