Universal wants Spotify to tighten leash on freemium model

There is very little doubt that, at least in the West, digital music has eclipsed sales of physical media like CDs. But it seems that even in the digital land there is a bit of unrest.

It has already practically hinted that the LG G4 will be unlike any of its flagships, but we only presumed that it was talking about the components and the construction.

LG Watch Urbane video reminds you how classy it is

LG might not be too keen to battle for the spotlight at MWC 2015, but that doesn't mean it doesn't want you to drool over its pre-announced products.
