In my previous post, I railed some at the
people at spotify for not providing a client
for the windows mobile. I then got a mail
from a reader that wanted to know where to
get the “hacked together” client. I dare say that
the client does not look like something thats
hacked together but rather like a piece of
software that can be a complement to my phone.
The program is called “mySpot” and can be
on the XDA Developers site. It lacks
some things such as spotify’s own
“offline listen” but hey, if you have a good
dataplan or access to a wifi, whats the problem?
This is however NOT a free ticket to premium
spotify, you will still need to have a premium
account to be able to access it from your mobile, but still.
The development on this seems to have been progressing faster then spotify’s own development
for a windows mobile client, and they have, hopefully, more then a single programmer
AND access to the source code to use as reference. The guy who has made this program
probably reverse engineered the spotify client for PC to get this together and frankly,
theres a lot of cudos for him in this.
As you know, I have been having problems with my larynxes for quite a while
now and it has really put a damper in my spirits, but I haven’t shut my light
out completely yet.
About a week ago, I saw an add for a job as copywriter and techical blogger.
Well, I looked into the add and saw that this might be something for me, seeing
as I have a technical background and I do blog a lot and I have tried different
blogging platforms just to see wich appealed to me.
It appears that the software that they use are WordPress,
and seeing as this blog itself is run on a linux server
and it is, in fact a wordpress blog, I can easily say
that I have some experience with the interface.
Add to it that I set up wordpress blogs for people
for free just for the fun of it, and it to read other
peoples views on things in general, I think I may be
Another little twist in the add was that since the
blog that this new employee will write on is aimed
towards English readers, the applicant needs a very
firm grip on the English language, both in written form
and in spoken form, and seeing how this blog looks,
I would say I am still in the running for the job.
However, I hate waiting, but that is really all I can do
at the moment. Wait until someone contacts me
regarding this job, with either questions, or if they
want me to take a writing test to discern how good my
English really is, or, if I, like many, are stuck using
translators for the long and technical words.
Well, I really hope that I am up to par, because I think
I might be a good team player for these guys.
The MP sounds like a very nice guy and well, since I only
have a voice impression of him, all I can say is that he
sounds like the guy I would like to have as a boss.
But, now its time to chew the nails some more and
hope I get contacted soon, and lets hope that the
contact is as positive as the short telephone calls I
had with the MP
