Barry Coffing Founder/CEO Music Supervisor Inc Major Labels Just Want A Spotify IPO When I found out Universal made around $500 million on the beats deal I realized that they are playing a different game. By they I mean big multi national corporations. Be it strip mining for coal or stripping rights and mining the music of artists. Greed is good and just move on to another mountain or video games as the case may be. Yes major labels are pushing Spotify towards an IPO and a big payday that will NOT include the artists and creators of music. Here is what I believe 1) Indie music still accounts for 20%-25% of the official revenue from recorded music but if you could track every local band with a CD it would be much greater. Given a fair fight of talent against talent I will bet on the people with passion […]
Arizona Man Trades $160K Diamond for $20 Weed, Cops Say Walter Earl Morrison, 20, is shown in this photo. Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office An Arizona man could have gotten himself one of the fanciest cars on the road and had money left over with what a diamond he allegedly stole was worth, but instead police say he traded the $160,000 gem for $20 worth of marijuana. Walter Earl Morrison, 20, of Phoenix, Az., was charged with felony theft after he allegedly stole a package containing the diamond while unloading a UPS cargo plane, authorities told ABC’s Phoenix affiliate KNXV-TV. The diamond was valued at $160,000, according to KNXV-TV. That’s enough money to buy a Maserati sports car and still have enough left over to make a down payment on a house. But Morrison had different plans. He traded in the $160,000 diamond for $20 worth of weed, which according to […]

Part of the Cloud computing glossary: The Internet of Things (IoT) is a scenario in which objects, animals or people are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT has evolved from the convergence of wireless technologies, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the Internet. A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low — or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network. So far, the Internet of Things has been most closely associated with machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in manufacturing and power, oil and gas utilities. Products built with M2M communication capabilities are often referred […]
