Report: Beats Music to launch January 21st
If you're a big music fan, circle January 21st on your calendar. That is the date when streaming music service Beats Music is expected to launch. The service will be available for all major mobile platforms. According to a published report on Saturday, Beats Music will be different from the competition, which it sees as aiming for the early adopters.

Tapping on bubbles that appear on your touchscreen will help you select your favorite musical styles. Tap once for "like, twice for "love" and a longpress will make a particular bubble disappear. Repeat with specific artists, and you've given the service enough information to come up with a custom playlist. And the list continues to change as the service adds more information about the music that you're listening to.

You can change your playlist depending on your location and current activity. For example, "Eye of the Tiger" might not be a song you would want to listen to while kicking back after a hard day at the office, but it is a perfect song to motivate you while jogging. The service will cost $10 for access to 20 million tunes when it is launched. This is already a crowded space to begin with, but Beats Music has some deep pockets that should allow it a fighting chance for survival.

Why? Why will "they" enjoy this anymore than any other phone? Cause last I owned an htc dna, the beats function works with headphones, and all it did was boost the bass and allow a little more volume. Which my note 3 has the same function just without a beats logo on it.

I'm speaking about the newer htc phones, which come with dual front facing stereo speakers (HTC Boomsound)
