Spotify starts accepting sign-ups for Canadian service pre-launch

Music streaming service Spotify is spreading into Canada in the near future, long after launching in a number of other major markets. While the exact date of the service's launch in the country is unknown, Engadget reports the company is accepting sign-ups for a queue to receive pre-launch invitations, suggesting that it is likely to go live for all potential users sooner rather than later.




Google Maps adds point-to-point measuring options

Google Maps for desktop browsers now allows users to measure distances between points. The Next Web writes that the "Measure Distance" option will let users set start and end points with the service providing back how far the direct line-of-sight distance is between the points, without using roads or other transport lines. Multiple points can be dropped, to aid with route planning, with Google reporting back distances between points as well as the overall total. It is unclear if the feature will make its way to mobile apps in the future.
