AT&T 2G towers shut down by Oakland police

Both the FCC and the Oakland Police Department have made it clear to AT&T that their brand new radio system doesn't play well with the carrier's 2G cell towers, and that because of this they've got to shut them down. The Oakland Police Department recently spent a reported $18 million dollars on a radio system that now appears to be having trouble communicating with police and firefighting vehicles when they come within a quarter mile of AT&T's 2G towers. Needless to say, there are at least two sides to this story as far as who is to blame for the interference.

Alien hunting goes crowd-sourced with SETILive

While the Search For Extra Terrestrial Life (SETI) may not be quite as flush as it used to be, its organizers are finding new and interesting ways to continue the search for life among the stars.

Spotify less useful than radio says U2 manager

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. McGuinness sees "the Spotify model" as part of the future of music, Digital Music News reports, but the supergroup manager also criticized confidentiality agreements between the service and labels as failing to show exactly what the benefits to musicians might be.

Halloween theme stations hit Pandora

I used to work with a woman that had to have music for whatever the season was playing in her office constantly. During Halloween, it was stuff like the Monster Mash constantly.
