Ever wish the music on your cell phone could be a bit louder without needing to attach it to a Bluetooth speaker? Check out Boost from iFrogz. The idea is simple: launch the music app on a smartphone, press play, and then place the phone on the Boost device and suddenly the music playing on the phone is a lot louder. Boost uses Near Field Audio technology to amplify the sound coming from the phone. Music actually sounds better since you dont need to increase the volume, which can distort the audio quality, to make it louder. Boost will be available this spring for $39.99.
Looking for a new Verizon cell phone, but aren't really interested in getting one that requires a data plan? We can help. We've compiled a list of all Verizon cell phones currently available that don't require a data plan.
If you want a phone that can make calls, take pictures, play music, and send texts check out the models listed below. If you want to send texts, you'll need to include that option when you select a plan. Verizon offers messaging in many of the company's Talk and Text plans.

This makes it an ideal choice for people who want to do more with a cell phone, but aren't quite ready for a smartphone.

At a press conference today, Google took the wraps off its music offering. The product called Google Music is available for U.S. residents to start using today. Essentially, the service is part cloud storage, part music store, and part music discovery.
Lets start with the cloud part. You can upload up to 20,000 songs free to your own Google Music Locker using the Google Music Manager. Theres no fee to do this and the idea behind doing this is so that you can access your music on any device. Once you have a song in the cloud, you can select songs by artist, playlist, or album to be played on an Android device without an Internet connection.
Googles music store can be found in the Android Market. There will a free song featured daily. First free song is David Bowies Sound and Vision. To celebrate the launch of the service there are a few more free songs available (most of the songs are from live performances) from Shakira, Rolling Stones, Busta Rhymes, ColdPlay, Pearl Jam, and Dave Matthews Band. The store can be accessed online or from any smartphone running Android 2.2 OS or later.
Once you purchase a song you can share it with your friends, even the ones who dont use Google+ - those people get an e-mail, so they can play the song once. If they like it they can buy it. Thats part of the discovery. Of course, Google will suggest music recommendations as well another way to discover new music.
Along with Google, T-Mobile announced that it would be offering its customers with Android 2.2 (or later) smartphones and tablets exclusive free Google Music from artists such as Maroon 5, Drake, and others. The company will introduce new free tracks weekly through the end of the year in the Android Music Store. Customers should look for the T-Mobiles Free Tracks Section. Plus, T-Mobile customers who purchase songs from Google Music using their Android smartphone or tablet can have the cost of the music added to their bill no need to setup a PayPal account or enter credit card info.
In this week's edition, we cover the new Nokia Windows Phone models, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, and does a test drive of the Voice Talk feature on the Samsung Galaxy Epic Touch 4G. Finally, details on how to enter the Halloween Scavenger Hunt. Click here for a chance to win.

Cloud storage is becoming more and more popular these days. In case you dont know, cloud storage is a way to have access to all your data (pictures, music, files, videos, etc) from virtually any device with an Internet connection. SugarSync is all about cloud storage with a version of its app for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, and more. Today, the company has announced a few noteworthy additions to its BlackBerry app.
The additions include the option of adding a PIN code to access the app for added security, the ability to sync items stored on the BlackBerrys microSD card to the SugarSync cloud, and a direct folder sync so that you can make changes to a file when not connected to the cloud and easily update those changes when back online. Interested in trying out the app? The company offers a free 5GB version of the app and for those who need more storage theres a 30GB plan for $4.99 a month or $50 a year. You can download the app at the SugarSync site or from the BlackBerry app world on your phone.
The popular music application, Slacker Radio, for smartphones just got better. The company announced a new version of the service called Slacker Radio Premium with a $9.99 monthly subscription fee. Besides offering an ad-free experience (a feature that is expected when paying for the app), it also has a lot more functionality including on-demand access to the music you want.
The on-demand feature is exactly what is sounds like: you can search, play, and even replay specific songs or entire albums. You can also see complete song lyrics, see the next artist, album, or song, and keep all "Favorite" songs in one spot. The most interesting feature that we look forward to trying out is the ability to playback stations, playlists, and albums while offline (Note: This feature is only available for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and BlackBerry and Android smartphones. If this sounds good to you, Slacker Radio is offering a free trial of Slacker Premium Radio on Facebook for a limited time.
