Geeky Tech Update

Wanted to share a couple of piece of software I’ve begun using recently that are rocking my socks…


Spotify is an ingenuis program for listening to music, sharing your favourite music, and so on. You can stream from a massive library of music – I was able to preview the new U2 album last week, and have been listing to Kings Of Leon and the Fray this week. Definitely worth checking out, has a free option and a couple of paid subscriptions.


Twhirl is a ‘social software desktop client’, which I’m using for Twitter. Not only can you use it to track your tweets & those of people you follow, you can look up other user’s profiles, search public tweets, and so on. Best of all: it’s free! Really enjoying it at the minute, it’s adding a whole new dimension to my tweeting.

So there you go! A little geekery for your day!

    Twhirl sounds promising. Twitter just seems to keep getting bigger and bigger every day, spawning forth new types of software.

    @ chrisalong: used to need an invite for spotify, but not anymore – you can sign up on the homepage.
