USB Music Album – Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is scheduled to re-release “The Fame Monster” on USB around May 3, 2010.  Although USB music albums are nothing new, it’s still a unique way to release music, create a buzz and provide hard core fans with a collectors edition memento.

The Fame Monster USB will contain over 800MBs of data and will include music, video and photos.  Of course all eight songs from “The Fame” will be there, including “Bad Romance” and Gaga’s duet with Beyonce, “Telephone.” Additionally, the drive contains nine remixes of songs from both “The Fame Monster” and “The Fame.” Lady Gaga will include her controversial short film “Telephone,” and will include Gaga’s single covers and new photos in a gallery. Pricing was not released, but that doesn’t matter Continue Reading

USB Movie Sticks – Starts NOW

usb movie stickActor Morgan Freeman and his production company Digiboo are trying to break ground with sales and distribution of movies via USB.  We love the idea! USB Movie sticks might become a thing of the future as Digiboo plans to launch over 100 kiosks in Hollywood Video stores next year; the first will roll out in January. People will be able to plug a USB device into the kiosk, download movies to rent or own, and then plug them in to any USB 2.0 or 3.0-compatible devices. Before you ask, yes, DRM is layered into the movie content so put away your ideas of bit-for-bit USB copies to pirate your movies.  However, you now own the content on a portable device which will pug into just about anything including xBox or game consoles, cars, computers and set top boxes.  No word on how transferable the format will be to get the rented video from USB to something like a iPhone or PDA for portable playback. About two years ago we started reporting on the USB music albums and now it appears we’ll see more articles about USB movie sticks. Continue Reading

New USB Music Album – The Kin – Free MP3 Download

GetUSB has reported many times over the popularity of USB music albums and how we feel this format will eventually overtake the CD for distribution of music.  Sure that day is a long time coming, but we’ll get there.  Here is another example: Through a sister company of GetUSB we had the pleasure of helping create a USB Music Album for The Kin.  If you haven’t heard of The Kin, please read on. The two brothers not only have a great, contemporary sound, but they also use current methods for MP3 data distribution.  The band put together a collection of USB sticks for different albums, including their most recent album “Live From The Pussy Cat Club.” Click the USB music album image below to begin a free download of their single track hit “New Day.” Continue Reading

Unlimited DRM Music from Datz

Digital Rights Management have surrounded music ever since the MP3 standard was set back in the late 90s.  We’ve slowly seen labels and artists go the route of DRM free music, and today Datz.com is trying it again.

The program Datz.com is promoting is a $100 membership fee which gives you access to download as much content as you want.  The membership comes with a CD and a loaded USB stick.  It seems the USB music album continues to grow in popularity.  The fee will last you 12 months, but what you accomplish in downloads is yours for life.  Transfer, burn or copy those MP3 to any number of players you want. Some of the record labels Datz.com is claiming you’ll get include EMI, Warner Bros Records, Beggars Group and The Orchard.
What’s the catch? Well, there’s an ominous phrase in the press release, “…a wide selection of new music released in 2009 will be available to Datz Music Lounge members,” indicating that perhaps not all of the new releases will be available?
In either event, if you love music and can part with a C note – Datz might be worth a shot. Source:  ShinyShiny.tv. Continue Reading
