Simplify Media - You Must Get This!!!
Yesterday morning I got an email from @discosis1, encouraging me to download the software from Simplify Media. She said it was cool, that I could have access to my friend's music on itunes as well as link my iphone to my home library.
I was busy and didn't get home till late last night to try it out.
In the 12 hours that I have had this software (7 of them sleeping) I have to say:
HOLY SHIT, YOU MUST GET THIS SOFTWARE!!!
Example: Last night I was able to link to a couple of my friend's itunes libraries. I was able to discover a live recording of the David Byrne set from Bonnaroo '09 on Phil's computer in Houston, and play it instantly.
Intrigued, I paid for the iphone app ($5.99). This morning on my bike ride to work I was able to play 11/22/97 Set II Tweezer>Black Eyed Katy>Piper on my iphone, the music was on my home computer. I was also able to listen to some Amon Tobin from Jonas0tt0's computer as I ate a breakfast burito and sipped coffee at my desk. The only snag I ran into was when I lost the signal as I got on the elevator.
I feel like I have had an OH SHIT moment. I can't wait to have all my music loving friends set this up and we will be listening to each other's music with just a click.
If you already have the software, or if this sounds like a good time, you can invite me - my username is the same as my twitter name.
