Deezer Now Has Its Own Radio App

While there are many music streaming services to choose from, there are those who want to have the opportunity to listen to the "old" radio stations. Deezer is one of those apps, but now it also wants to offer this option to its user base. The company announced the release of its app for Android called Radio by Deezer .

At the moment, the app is limited only to those in the United Kingdom. This new app is quite simple. Users will be able to access more than 30,000 popular radio stations from the app and will not even be required to register or log in to stream any station.

Radio by Deezer will be available for all countries

Obviously, if you want to take advantage of the other features, it would help if the user already had a Deezer account. For example, if you come across a song you like, you can save it in your favorite song library. And with your main Deezer app and account, you'll be able to listen to these tracks whenever you want. If you come across a song on the radio that you do not know, you will also be able to find out the name of the song directly from the radio app.

Radio by Deezer has three main tabs: " Explore ", " My Stations " and " My Music ". The first is, of course, the place where the user will be able to browse and search all the thousands of available radio stations. The second section is where all the stations most recently played are shown. And in "My music", you can find your favorite tracks.

In addition to music, users will be able to listen to talk about radio and sports. But for now, only those in the UK will be able to download and access the Radio via the Deezer app. If you live there, you can download it from the Google Play Store .

In Other Countries Like Italy, internet radio stations playing music without paying rights is a crime

Web radio law does not violate copyright legislation, which transmits music by paying only partly the SIAE rights and not at all those to the phonographic consortium if the non-existence of the profit and the only insertions emerges advertising concerns non-profit organizations without giving an economic return. Also, the configurability of other criminal hypotheses should be excluded if the intentionality of the conduct is lacking.

This was clarified by the Court of Cassation , third penal section, in sentence no. 1652/2019 (hereinafter enclosed) rejecting the appeals of the civil party and the Public Prosecutor against the sentence that had acquitted the defendant, manager of a web radio, from the crime of reproduction and diffusion of works protected by copyright in the absence payment of the amount due to the SIAE and the SCF.

In particular, the referring court had found that the purpose of profit was absent in the disputed conduct , since the execution of advertising advertisements did not emerge, nor the achievement of other revenues from the activity of the web radio.

Furthermore, the defendant's good faith emerged as to the lawfulness of his conduct: before proceeding with the radio broadcasting of musical pieces, he had asked SIAE the necessary steps to proceed and had followed the instructions provided by that body, having, among other things, obtained the consent of numerous record companies (consortium members in the SCF) to the radio promotion of the pieces transmitted.

In the case in question, following the investigation carried out in the merits, it was found that the radio was made by the daughter of the accused and a group of his friends: the young people, having completed the university course in journalism, had achieved a on-line journal and, subsequently, an audio channel to spread the same news.

It was only later that music was also broadcast, for which the necessary authorizations were obtained and obtained from the SIAE the necessary authorizations, with the signing of a license that allowed the loading of the music files in the digital database of the radio.
Web radio, SIAE and SCF authorizations and absence of profit

The Supreme Court recalls the provisions of art. 171-ter of the law 22 April 1941, n. 633, on the protection of copyright and other rights related to its exercise, emphasizing that the purpose of profit is an essential feature of the criminal hypothesis referred to in the first paragraph, which therefore requires this element for its configurability.

It consists of an economically appreciable gain or a capital increase, since it is not sufficient, to consider it subsistent, any other advantage, not economically appreciable (see Cassation, No. 45567/2010).

Both the newspaper and the radio were supported by donations from a non-profit association , which, in turn, was powered almost entirely by donations from the defendant (or sometimes by some of the young people in the group). Therefore, the lack of a profit in the management of the radio by the defendant seemed obvious, that, indeed, he was the financier without drawing any profit from it .

In addition, there was no advertising link between the radio and the online newspaper: the advertisements on the web radio site concerned non-profit organizations and were not remunerated, and even the advertising banners in the newspaper, in favor of the radio, had only the purpose of f a greater diffusion of the latter in the network , so that the same had determined, in a year, revenue, not collected, for about 50 dollars (moreover in favor of the newspaper and not the radio).
Save the web radio that does not pay the rights to phonographs, but transmits non-profit

On the basis of these elements, the Court of Cassation believes that the non-existence of a profit-making role in the management of the web radio has been confirmed, since no usefulness has emerged that is likely to be appreciated as a result of the exercise, albeit stable and professional. (through the issue of the required administrative authorizations and the signing of license agreements with the SIAE), resulting from the exercise and management of this web radio by the accused

On the contrary, this management was characterized by amateur and popular aims, animated by a group of young students and, above all, not generating any economic utility that could be evaluated for the defendant, who funded the activity of the radio. The accused also had numerous interlocutions with various phonographic producers, who had given express consent to the radio promotion of the pieces.

Correctly, conclude the Ermellini, the configurability of other criminal hypotheses was also excluded , as a consequence of the diffusion of musical pieces in the absence of the payment of the due rights to the SCF, given the lack of the relative subjective element and the good faith of the defendant, who , lacking technical knowledge on the subject, before starting the dissemination of music through the radio, had asked SIAE what were the necessary requirements and had followed the instructions provided by this.

How Much Is The Nokia Pro Wireless Earphone and Nokia True Wireless Earbuds in the Philippines



Together with the Nokia 7.1 , yesterday HMD Global also presented two models of earphones, one of which is full wireless: they are called Nokia Pro Wireless Earphone and Nokia True Wireless Earbuds and at first glance they seem to promise well.

Let's start from the first model: the Pro Wireless Earphones are Bluetooth headsets to be placed on the shoulders, support Qualcomm aptX technology that should ensure good sound quality and minimum audio latency, resist splashes and sweat, and have a declared autonomy of 10 hours. But above all, stand out for some goodies that make them stand out compared to many other competitors' earphones: they have the cables covered with rope, vibrate to signal the call and are equipped with magnets, which automatically pause the music by joining the two earphones . The price for Europe should be 4,207.26 Philippine Piso, which could make them great rivals of the excellent (but unavailable) OnePlus Bullets Wireless .

As for the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds , stand out immediately for the particular shape of the houses: cylindrical and elongated, substantially different from the classic boxes that we are used to. Also in this case we find resistance to sketches and sweat (IPX4 certification), an enviable declared autonomy of 3 and a half hours with a single recharge (which comes to 14 hours with the extra battery provided by the case) and Bluetooth 5.0 . The recharge is via USB-C, each headset weighs only 5 grams and the price is competitive: 7,865.75 Philippine Piso.

Obviously we will have to try them with our hands before we can express ourselves better on this, but at first glance it seems that Nokia could have hit the mark with these two models of earphones.

According to reports, Nokia Pro Wireless Earphone and Nokia True Wireless Earbuds are expected to arrive in November in the UK and by the end of the year in the rest of Europe.

Review of the Xiaomi Sports Bluetooth Headphones (Youth Edition)



Xiaomi has announced the new Sports Bluetooth Headset Youth Edition earphones  , designed for athletes and offered at a very low price. Although they are cheap products, their data sheet is, however, very interesting. These earphones have removable plastic arches and are IPX4 certified to withstand splashes of water or sweat. On the wire of the earphones there is also a mini controller with microphone and three keys to control the various functions to which they can perform how to handle calls or start and stop music playback.

To enhance audio playback, these earphones come with a 10 mm driver and a diaphragm made of PET. In this way it is possible to optimize the low and medium frequencies that reduce the distortions. The Xiaomi Sports Bluetooth Headset Youth Edition headsets connect to smartphones through Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity . Thanks to the 120 mAh rechargeable battery, the earphones have a range of up to 6 hours of music playback. The autonomy can vary considerably depending on the volume level.

These earphones can be purchased for only 99 Yuan, that is, around 10-12 euros. This is a low price that would be destined to rise in the case Xiaomi decided to bring these earphones also outside the Chinese market.

For athletes, however, these are really interesting products if the goal is to listen to music during physical activity.

How Good Are Microsoft Surface Headphones Here Is a Review


The anticipations of the previous days had always described, with little details, the new hybrid tablets, the new laptops and the new desktop computer designed for the creatives. No one, however, expected that Microsoft could show up at the event last October 2, 2018 with a pair of headphones with noise canceling technology . Instead, when everything seemed to take place according to the script, the Surface Headphones , the first headphones ever made by Redmond's house, appeared on stage.

And, mind you, this is not an impromptu company: according to what was said during the event dedicated (mainly) to the new Surface PCs , Microsoft engineers have worked on the development of these headphones for three years , with the The objective is to compete with the various Bose, Sony and Sennheiser in an increasingly competitive and increasingly attractive market (both for users, but above all for producers). In short, a well-calculated risk and built entirely in-house , taking advantage of laboratories, designers and production facilities all within the company created by Bill Gates.

At first glance, the work of the technicians of the Redmond house was more than excellent: the Surface Headphones are headphones over ear with a classic look , but not for this dated or "boring". Completely wireless , they connect via Bluetooth and are compatible with Windows 10 systems (you can connect them instantly with any Windows PC thanks to Swift Pair technology ), macOS, Android and iOS . Equipped with internal battery, offer a range of 15 hours of audio playback with Bluetooth, noise cancellation and active Cortana (yes, natively support Cortana without the need for an Internet connection); if only the audio reproduction and the cancellation of the noise remain active, the autonomy increases to 50 hours. Among other features, we also report the so-called head on : just wear them or remove them to activate or stop the audio playback.

For an optimal user experience, Microsoft engineers have implemented a double control system : on the one hand volume and noise cancellation level can be controlled thanks to the rings mounted on the outside of the audio pavilions; on the other side it will be possible to check the functionalities (audio playback, answer calls, control audio reproduction) thanks to a touch surface on the outside of the pavilions.

Surface Headphones features summary
Pavilions weight and dimensions : 296 grams, 40 mm pavilions
Microphones : 8 microphones (4 per pavilion) including 4 beanforming
Autonomy and recharge . 15 hours of audio playback with Bluetooth, noise canceling and active Cortana; 50 hours of audio playback with Bluetooth off and active noise cancellation. Equipped with fast charging, it offers up to 1 hour of playback with a charge of 5 minutes
Audio and equalizer . Thanks to the smartphone app that accompanies the headphones, the user can choose between 13 different preset audio modes, so as to play their own music with the bass levels that you prefer
Connectivity . Bluetooth 4.2, USB type-C
Controls . Double ring on the outside of the pavilions to control volume and noise cancellation level; touch surface for checking the functionality of the headphones
Voice assistant . Naturally compatible with Cortana, even without a connection to the Net. To activate the assistant, it will suffice to say "Hey Cortana"
Microsoft headphones are not immediately available, but can only be purchased in a few weeks. Even if the Microsoft Headphones release date has not been made known, it is easy to assume that they are put on sale just before the Christmas holidays, as a Christmas present for the home audiophiles. It must be said, however, that Microsoft headphones should not reach our latitudes. Or at least, they should not do it immediately: the initial launch, in fact, is only provided for the United States. The retail price is 350 dollars.
