Love/Hate iRig apps—Ahead of the curve with music mobile tech—but they try to upsell addons within the apps. It’s tacky and gives me pause.

So for the record regarding FB music. I must use 2 things I don’t like (Facebook and Chrome) to enable one thing that I do like (@Rdio).
A couple days ago a I wrote a lot about my digital setup. It went over well, and seemed to be useful for a whole set of folks. I’m thankful for that, but I felt compelled to take a bit of time to dictate a few of the reasons why I’ve pared down and simplified not just my setup, but my whole relationship to things. (Aside: This bit from George Carlin is required viewing.)
My whole digital setup is the result of thinking about this “stuff” relationship too much, then backing up a bit to a longer view to start looking for patterns. I found a few ideas, and I wondered how those ideas could trickle down into how I worked from day to day. I’m not writing these things to encourage all of us to go out and tinker our workflows (really, we should just shut up about it and just get to work), but rather to surface some different ways of thinking about our stuff, work related or not.
Who’s paying for music subscription service’s like Rdio, Spotify and MOG? Using the free versions? Sticking with iTunes? Pandora? Other?
I’m loving this support thread about needing Facebook to use Spotify: http://getsatisfaction.com/spotify/topics/can_you_sign_up_for_spotify_without_facebook
Fascinating conversation happening on Rdio about the State of Digital Music per FB’s new music features: http://www.rdio.com/#/people/jasonpaul/playlists/160985/The_State_of_Digital_Music_%28as_I_see_it%29/
