WhoSampled Brings 'The World's Largest And Richest Database Of Music DNA' To Android

WhoSampled - it's easy enough to guess what the service is about from its name.

Sonos 5.1 Update Lets Users Set Things Up Using Their Existing Wi-Fi Networks, No Sonos Bridge Required

With a Sonos sound system, people can pump music through every room of the house using their Android phone or tablet as a master control device. This wireless audio jujitsu previously required users to directly plug a Sonos Bridge into their routers, which would create a dedicated network for the system to do its business on.
