    I tried to request an invite but got a 400 error, Bad Request, heh. Anyone successful in trying to get an invite?

    Edit: Just tried to request again and it worked.

    Or you could simply get a sync app/software (or just copy paste lawl lazy?) to do that and save yourself some bandwidth cap, this is a decent idea but it went into the wrong direction in the "upload" part.

    Most of all (if not that all) people gets a wireless modem capable of support a really fast sync, rather than waste bandwidth -_-
  5. Ho hum...whats the point of these digital lockers. Why don't people just stream from their home PC's? Must not know how. Actually I was hoping for a all u can download and stream service like Rhapsody. Hopefully Spotify, when it launches, will be a good service..>Who wants to buy music in this day and age?? I want good quality of any song and good apps for the phones or even download to MP3's players..Rhapsody is the only service that does just that for $9.99 a month. We just need more Competition in that sector.

    Unlike most other things, the size of music has remained pretty much constant for the past decade, especially considering the quality you need for your average personal music device. I see licensing becoming more of a problem than storage for companies like Google. Besides, I feel more comfortable with my music of oft dubious origin sitting on my hard drive rather than the cloud.

    I actually often prefer the predictive randomness of Pandora when it comes to listening to random music. If I really want a specific album, I'll just load it up on my phone or mp3 player.

    Why do 360p youtube videos pause less than 240p videos? Must have lower priority.

    yet another service requiring bandwidth ,when Carriers are constantly finding ways to cap ,slow down or charge extra for Data.

    Pay to get on the internet +pay to use

    The world use to make fun of AOL and Compuserve in the early days of the internet country road with there premium services

    Whether its cloud ,netflix ,steam or any bandwidth grabbing business, included free data with your product
