MC2 Post 1033 A Whole Lot of GaGa Going On...



Wingman and the Music Goes On...
Saw her on American Idol.  
She Rocked.  
Heard about her on Thursday's: 
Tech Talk Back with  Erik Lanigan.

Where Erik mentions the reprised Amazon Offer of Lady Gaga's new album "Born This Way" selling for 99 cents.  And bumping your Amazon Cloud Storage to 20 GB for FREE!  
Thursday ONLY!
Amazon Rocked.


Having it Both Ways:

Lady Gaga Sells Lots of Cheap Music–
And Full-Priced Music, Too

Billboard says that Amazon sold 440,000 digital copies of her new “Born This Way” album at $0.99 each. The e-commerce giant sold 330,000 copies on Monday, even though demand for promotion blew its servers up, and 110,000 more copies on Thursday, when it repeated the stunt.

Billboard also says Lady Gaga is set to sell 1.15 million albums total this week. Which means that buyers are paying full price for some 700,000 of them.

Bonus lesson, because we already knew it, but it’s good to remember anyway: People are still buying CDs! Billboard also projects that Apple’s iTunes will account for 200,000 units sold by the end of the week. Add in Amazon’s totals and you get to 640,000 digital albums sold. Which means that Americans will have bought more than 500,000 good old-fashioned compact discs this week, too.



A News Feed App called Pulse

All this from an Android App I heard about on All About Andriod on Leo's TWiT Network.  The News Feed App called Pulse, which they mentioned was also available on the iPhone.  I switched my Twit app to the background clicked the App Store and searched for Pulse and Pulse News Mini.  Two seconds later I had the Free App on page 7.

Darn Good App.   Wingman.
