It's been a long time coming, but Spotify has finally launched in the US.  The music streaming service offers instant access to what seems like a limitless library of songs.  The free version of Spotify gives you that instant access, but you'll have to listen to ads from time to time.  It also requires an invitation, which you can sign up for on Spotify.com.  Shelling out $5 a month gets you an ad free experience, but the excitement comes with the Premium service.

After Netflix announced a price change that managed to turn them from heroes to villains overnight, it's time for their competitors to step up and try and take advantage of the glut of people cancelling their subscriptions. Blockbuster's offering is a different take on things that reflects their in-store rental policy. Instead of signing up for a subscription, you can rent discs individually at a price of $4.99.  Simply pick your disc and it'll be on the way to your door for a 7-day rental period.

Say goodbye to the good old days of cheap, unlimited DVD rentals and unlimited streaming for less than ten dollars. Starting today for new customers, and after the first of September for existing customers, U.S. Netflix subscribers will find pricing on the unlimited streaming / unlimited DVD rentals (1 at-a-time) jumping from $9.99/month to $15.98/month.  Blu-ray rentals are of course $2-5 per month extra (depending on the plan).  This price jump isn't really a surpise given the amount of cash Netflix has been sinking into original programming and licensing agreements, but still 60 percent is quicte a rate hike.

One of the problems that's been facing fans of 3D is a significant lack of content.  While there are an increasing number of 3D Blu-rays and a few 3D channels on the market, there isn't enough to fill a full day of entertainment. It's not an issue of 3D content not being released - there just isn't much out there.  Sources say that CBS hopes to help solve this by converting 2D content to 3D and popping it on to a brand new cable channel.  The company has apparently been shopping the idea around to cable providers and showing off their 2D to 3D conversion tech.

When you're buying a car, sound may not be the first thing on your list, but if you're an audiophile then it should still be a concern.  After all, why should your listening experience suffer just because you're driving?  The BMW 6 coupe and convertible both come packed with a sound system created by Bang & Olufsen that utilizes 12 active loudspeakers and pumps out 1,000 watts of power.  This includes five tweeters, five mid-range speakers and a pair of subwoofers mounted under the front seats.

If you're living outside of the 50 US States and Canada, chances are you're pretty sick of people talking up the Netflix streaming service when you can't even access it.  It's like how we in the States feel about Spotify.  Good news is here for those living in Mexico, Central America, South America and the Carribbean - Netflix has announced that streaming video will be coming your way later this year.  You'll be able to access the site in Spanish, Portuguese or English depending on your preference and stream movies directly to your PC or a variety of other devices.
