Everyone has heard of the theory that music played to plants helps them grow.
A company called MOG believe it as scientific proof so have developed some systems around it. They have found a farm based in Australia, gathered the experts and played the tunes. They then used the fruit, created and bottled the juice, and now it's available for sale. You can literally drink blue suede juice (just don't step on it – ha, did you see what I did there?)
In addition to that they launched MOG, an online music streaming service designed to compete with other sites like the ever-growing Spotify.
The people at MOG asked me to trial the service for a month, and also sent me a complimentary juice to try. Given that I'm a big user of spotify, they wanted my opinion on how I found the experience in comparison.
The service boasted some great features:
- Unmetered downloads for BigPond customers (including mobile)
- Personalised recommendations
- Share playlists
- Music quality
- Over 16,000,000 songs
For me, the unmetered feature is HUGE, and something that definitely makes me tempted to jump ship from my pro subscription with Spotify when my trial subscription with MOG is up. I have always been worried about streaming on my phone with Spotify purely because of the usage charges. As a Telstra customer, I wouldn't have to worry about that anymore, and I'm not going to be changing from Telstra any time soon (I have learned my lesson in trusting other providers, never again).
I know that both Spotify and MOG have the ability with premium subscription to download playlists so that usage shouldn't be a problem, but what if there's a new album that you just heard of that you want to stream? What if space on your phone/device is an issue, and you want to conserve it by not downloading the music?
