    T-Mobile adds Google Play Music, 13 other services to its Music Freedo... - PC World NEW!

        Music streaming services can eat into your data plan, but T-Mobile just lightened the load for music and video lovers. T-Mobile has added Google Play Music, Soundcloud, and Xbox Music among 14 new music streaming services that work with T-Mobile’s Music Freedom plan. For users with an eligible phone plan, any music streamed from a supported service won’t count toward their data cap. Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, and several other streaming apps are already on board.In August, T-Mobile said it was working to add Google Play Music, as it topped a subscriber poll of most-wanted services. The network says it doesn’t charge providers to participate in Music Freedom, so T-Mobile likely delayed the rollout until it had built enough capacity to accommodate its subscribers' jam sessions.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    AMD tablet development stalls as priorities change - PC World 1 hour ago

        Advanced Micro Devices’ interest in tablets has waned as the company restructures operations in an effort to turn around its finances.The tablet market is in a price battle and profit margins for chip makers are minuscule, said Kevin Lensing, senior director for mobility solutions at AMD.“We’re evaluating [tablets] closely. It’s not our priority,” Lensing said.Tablet sales are slowing, with the market concentrated around Apple, Samsung and low-cost Chinese tablet makers whose products do not play to AMD’s strength in areas such as graphics.Instead of tablets, the company is concentrating resources on products in which it has the best chance to grow, which includes PCs, Lensing said. The PC market is slowly rebounding and AMD this week announced a new line of PC chips code-named Carrizo, which use as little as 10 watts of power.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    SMBs get their very own Salesforce app store - PC World 1 hour ago

        Users of Desk.com, Salesforce’s cloud-based customer service product for small and medium-size businesses, now have an app store designed just for them. Called Desk.com App Hub, the store offers 50 apps from Salesforce partner companies that handle functions including group chat, social monitoring, language translation and e-commerce analytics.Customer data from these apps can eventually be integrated with Desk.com via new technology called Canvas, a feature that can lead to better customer service, according to a Desk.com executive.Small companies use many cloud services and need to a way to centrally organize data to provide good customer service, said Leyla Seka, senior vice president and general manager of Desk.com. The challenge, though, is that many of these apps don’t work together and small companies lack the resources to integrate this information. This forces users to access multiple apps to gather relevant data, a situation that can hurt service efforts if employees miss information that’s stored across disparate cloud applications.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
