Ya boy has been doing some virtual jet-setting and lending my “jack of tech” knowledge to the BounceTV viewers down in Tallahassee, Fl. I’ve been the tech guru that the WTXL ABC 27 affiliate has called on to dish the tech dirt over the past month or so. I just thought I would share the live Skype spots I’ve done so far.
In the spots, which are live on the 7 o’clock news down in FLA, we talk about President Obama possibly trading his BlackBerry in for a smartphone, how the new iOS 7 may be biting the Windows Phone 8 steeze, and how Samsung Android is knocking on Apple’s door.
Hopefull, the folks at BounceTV Tally will continue to bring me back to dish the tech dirt.
That rumored deal between Jay-Z and Samsung has come to fruition as Galaxy device owners will get Jay-Z’s latest studio album as a free download.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy SIII, S4, or Galaxy Note 2 you will have a chance to get Jigga’s lastest studio album entitled “Magna Carta Holy Grail” free before anyone else. The announcement was made via a 3-minute commercial spot during the NBA Finals game on June 16th.
Magna Carta will be released via a customized app. The app itself will be available on June 24th in Google Play and will offer a deeper look into the making of the album, and additional features that won’t be available to the general public. The album will be unlocked midnight, July 4th, a full 72-hours before it’s available to the public, to only the first million people who downloaded the app.
There are a ton of Galaxy device owners (the S4 has already sold 10 million units alone), so you will have to watch the clock on July 4th to make sure you’re one of the 1st million.
To my knowledge, this is a first where a major artist like Jay-Z has partnered with a major tech company like Samsung to launch a campaign like this. Time will tell if it’s successful, but one thing is for sure, this will indeed open up the door for more entertainers looking to expand their brand via technology.
