SpotDJ adds iPod support
SpotDJ today announced its support for Apple's iPod by enabling direct-to-device delivery, enabling users to hear "spots" -- or short snippets of audio -- while listening to music. SpotDJ queries its database each time a song plays, tacking on interesting or relevant audio spots based on user preferences and listening habits when the song ends. Users can take spots on-the-go with an iPod, and playlists are different every time a user syncs the portable audio device. "SpotDJ brings the voice of bands, DJs and fans directly to listeners, adding relevant audio clips while people listen to music," said Kevin Barenblat, co-founder and CEO of SpotDJ. "Now on SpotDJ people can hear Taylor Hicks talking about American Idol, Ben Fong-Torres speaking with The Doors' Jim Morrison, and one of the users inviting all her SpotDJ fans to Austin for South by Southwest."
