They're further expanding their market with the recent announcement of a partnership with Sony, in effect killing the Japanese OEM's own music service called Music Unlimited. This may be a bit of bad news for those attached to that particular brand, but great news for Sony users who have yet to discover the joys of Spotify.

Journal with Narrate update: Material Design, new sharing features

Journaling isn't just the property of famous people, high school students who are forced to do so as homework, or lonely people who cannot keep their emotions in check.
