    You can scrobble if you want to, you can leave your friends behind...

    'Cause your friends don't scrobble and if they don't scrobble
    Well they're no friends of mine

    Anyway... I discovered recently that European cellphone provider, Vodafone, had created an application in conjunction with Last.fm that I can use to scrobble your music on the go.

    I feel a bit late to the party with this, as it's been out since December, but in my defence it's not exactly well advertised on the Last.fm site or by Vodafone and I only stumbled across it when I was searching for an alternative to Mobbler, which doesn't work properly with my phone.

    I've been trying it out this morning and it works great - you just leave it running in the background and you can choose whether you want live scrobbling or deferred updates of, say, once per day. If you view the app while playing music you can view the artist bio, as with with the full desktop application. The only thing I couldn't seem to do is love tracks, but that's hardly a show stopper.

    Indeed. I don't have a phone to use that with and apps on US cellular require and access fee of $10 a month to even browse apps. It's stupid and I don't bother. WinAmp FTW!

    We are fortunate, in Britain anyway, that in the early 2000's the cellphone companies went all out to be the first to offer 3G services. Back about 2004 there were a flood of adverts trying to get people to upgrade to video phones, but the uptake was minimal and it looked like the huge investment had been for nothing, as people were quite content with the voice and SMS facilities they had.

    Then some bright spark realised that they had the perfect infrastructure for data transfer, and there was a change in approach by the network providers. So now you can get a 3.5G dongle for a laptop for very little and have pretty data speeds where ever you go. It's only in the last of year or so (with the introduction of the iPhone) that the actual consumer cellphones have started to make use of that infrastructure, and because all the investment was made years ago the charges are quite reasonable.

    It only costs me a few per month for pretty much unlimited data use on my phone. I'm actually typing this on my laptop which is connected via Bluetooth to my cellphone, which I'm using as a modem. I get a data rate of around 150kbs and that's fine for light internet use... and scrobbling, to bring us back on topic!

    I can't believe I haven't read this sooner! This sounds too awesome to miss out on.

    Does Last.FM have a problem with Hotmail email addresses? I've been refreshing my inbox or about 10 mins now, and nothing. Not even my junk mail has gotten any love...

    Oh well, I'll see if it sent in the morning.

    Similar to the app for the cell phone had anyone mentioned its also available on ipod touch? Again this info is a bit late to the party.

    Yes it is. Last.fm might have some issues with hotmail, hence why I use gmail.
