Talking about Sweden and music has up until now either dealt with The Swedish Music Export Phenomenon
or how Sweden is a safe haven for pirates
. That might change now. Today Spotify launched
(that is, for people in Sweden, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Finland or Norway). A streaming music application that provides full on demand playing. Available
in ad-supported (30s twice per hour) free mode or premium mode (~$15 per month).
And it wouldn't be a proper startup if you didn't get the mandatory "this is going to change the world" video
The Local has the details
But of course, this and any future discussion regarding any aspect of Sweden or Swedish people will forever be overshadowed by that heretic Engdahl
