Spotify less useful than radio says U2 manager

Secretive licensing deals and "insufficient transparency" could scupper Spotify and other cloud-jukebox services, U2 manager Paul McGuinness has warned, suggesting that "we're unlikely to give [debut records] to Spotify" as the streaming music platform is more promotional than a money-spinner.

Today deputy program manager for Army unmanned aerial systems for the U.S. Army Tim Owings said that the Army is committed, or rather, remains committed, to the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS), which is a main mean for disseminating video images to the battlefield. This project is definitely underway, but wont see field operation until 2014. However, rapid advances in encryption software and other technology developments in recent years could mean smaller-scale self-contained 4G networks could be the answer for troops seeing streaming video images on their phone in about two years from now.
