Send videos from your Locker to any mobile phone

If you've ever wanted a funny or musical video on your mobile phone to show others or watch while traveling about it's now simple with MP3tunes and your personal Locker. Open your Locker, find a video then right-click on it and select "Load to: Mobile" Enter in the telephone number (be sure and include the country code) and we'll send the video to your phone. The video is optimized for a phone's bandwidth and screen size automatically. (This technique will also work for audio files.)

To add video to your account use LockerSync or DownloadHelper. (NOTE: This will work on any phone which has a data connection to load the video except an iphone because Apple locks them up. Don't fret iphone users we'll have our iphone app out shortly so you can play too.)

Think net radios are too expensive? Think again!

Internet radios have been around for a few years now. When they first came out they were very high-end and had a steep price tag to match. Most people saw them and thought: "Someday I'd like to get a net radio." Well, if you've been waiting for the price to fall to about $100, today is your lucky day.

We have been working with Audiovox/RCA and they have two new net radio models to choose from: the AR 200 and the AR 600i. Both of these integrate MP3tunes Locker support right out of the box! Now, you can play thousands of net stations as well as tunes from your Music Locker, wirelessly. And prices start at around $100. So, what are you waiting for? It's time to get a net radio.
