If you’re an Indian, Apple Music is the Streaming service to go for

I am a music lover. I mean, Who isn’t? I am one of those who likes to have a song for every moment in my life. I like to give every type of music a moment in my life. And that’s why I want every song ever recorded on my fingerprints. Born & brought up in West of India, parents from East of india, and now living in South, I am living through a phase of great cultural mix. Add to these the Internet, and I have a full course of  culture.  And Apple Music serves it in the best manner. How?

Inavailability of Major Streaming Services

In India, we don’t have Spotify or Pandora or Google Play Music. And our in-house streaming services like Gaana or Saavn, don’t really complete the job of delivering the foreign songs & playlists like Spotify does.

Nokia in it’s new S40 series failed to understand what a smartfone means – A smarter device not a more attractive one. Take for example the Nokia Store – better interface indeed – but where are the apps. What kind of smartfone it is which can’t play any of the Office files. But that’s not the end of story. I got a mail from Nokia about the extensionsit can’t support. But what I find few months later – my device can support all the Office files – courtesy an app just released, though it was one of the worst apps of its kind. Clearly, indicating how crippled the hopes of Nokia’s own smartfone OS is! Plus rejection of .sis files  meant, no pirated apps available either.

So not in agreement with the Nokia’s tagline – Ready to take on the world!
