Jay Z's Tidal doubles down on streaming for audiophiles

Tidal, the Jay Z-owned streaming service built around high quality tracks, is relaunching in a move that could give consumers a new option when weighing competitors like Spotify or Pandora.

The revamped Tidal will go live on Monday at 5 p.m. U.S. Eastern time, as indicated by a large countdown timer that dominates its homepage. A company spokesman confirmed the relaunch plan but declined to comment further on how Tidal?s service might change. It?s reasonable to speculate that the new Tidal may feature lower pricing, new app functions, or an expansion of its existing database of 25 million ?lossless? CD quality songs.

Tidal?s ad-free flagship service currently costs $19.99 per month, and can be accessed on the desktop, iOS, Android and home audio players like Sonos. A version offering standard sound quality costs $9.99 per month. Ad-supported services from competitors like Spotify, Pandora, Rdio and Deezer are free, although premium versions without ads cost around $9.99 per month or less.

Silk Road investigators charged with stealing massive amounts of bitcoin

Two former U.S. government agents face charges related to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of bitcoin while assisting with an investigation of the Silk Road underground online marketplace, with one accused of using a fake online persona to extort money from operators of the site.

Facing charges of wire fraud and money laundering are Carl Force, 46, of Baltimore, a former special agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, and Shaun Bridges, 32, of Laurel, Maryland, a former special agent with the U.S. Secret Service. Both served on the Baltimore Silk Road Task Force, which investigated illegal activity on the Silk Road website, the Department of Justice said Monday in a press release.

Nest users get a chilly awakening in the UK

File under First World Problems: Because of a time change glitch in the United Kingdom, some Nest Learning Thermostat users woke up a bit colder than usual.

Much like Daylight Savings Time in the United States, the United Kingdom sets its clocks forward for British Summer Time in the spring. This year?s time change fell on March 29, setting clocks ahead of Greenwich Mean Time by one hour.

Some Nest thermostats apparently didn?t internalize the time change. Despite showing a correct schedule, some users say their thermostats failed to turn on the heat at the appropriate time. As The Register points out, several complaints have popped up on Nest?s forums and on Twitter.

Photos now available in Google Drive, making Google+ even less relevant

We?re all patiently waiting to figure out what exactly Google is going to do with its frail social network, Google+, and today?s news isn?t looking to good for it.

In a blog entry, Google announced that you can now access all those photos you backed up with Google+ through Google Drive. Its intended to make it easier for you to use photos in your documents, but frankly, there?s probably more to the announcement happening behind the scenes.

The story behind the story: It?s slightly redundant to have your photos on both Google+ and Google Drive, though Google suggests this will make it easier to organize them as you see fit and add other file types to a Drive folder. That makes sense for sticking photos in your docs, but it also sort of hints at something major on the horizon. This update may the first step in a plan to separate Google's photo service from Google+ entirely.

HP links Vertica and IDOL seeking better unstructured data analysis

Promising more thorough and timelier data analysis, Hewlett-Packard has released a software package that combines the company?s Vertica database with its IDOL data analysis platform.

The HP Haven Connector Framework Server may allow organizations to study data sets that were too large or unwieldy to analyze before.

The package provides ?a mixture of statistical and contextual understanding,? of data, said Jeff Veis, HP vice president of marketing for big data. ?You can pull in any form of data, and then do real-time high performance analysis.?

The Vertica Analytics Platform is columnar database software built for quickly analyzing large amounts of structured data using SQL (Structured Query Language). IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer) was built to index and search unstructured data within an enterprise.

T-Mobile revamps its coverage maps with 'real-time customer usage' data

T-Mobile?s newest coverage map paints a rosier picture of the network?s reach, part of its continuing efforts to steal more customers from its rivals.

The T-Mobile blog says it?s incorporating ?real-time customer usage? into its maps, which it argues gives a more accurate picture of what your experience would be like if you make the leap from Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.

When you visit the new coverage map there?ll be a toggle that indicates if the data is ?customer verified.? You can turn this off to compare this to the traditional coverage-calculation method. The option disappears in less urban areas.
