NormSoft and GlooLabs announce music streaming software for Palm OS
NormSoft, Inc. and GlooLabs, Inc. entered a partnership to launch a service that allows mobile users to navigate and listen to their home music collection using the Pocket Tunes Deluxe software. To be released in Q4 of 2004, the service will be hosted by NormSoft and powered by GlooLabs' GlooNet technology.

"Imagine turning your Treo 600 from palmOne into a wireless MP3 player with access to your entire home music collection," said David Arfin, CEO of GlooLabs. "With GlooNet and Pocket Tunes, users will be able to listen to their music anytime, anywhere."

The Pocket Tunes service for Palm OS will allow users to browse their music collections and playlists stored on any home computer. The selected music can be streamed to any Palm Powered smart mobile devices via WiFi hotspots or mobile data services. Users will have access to their entire music collection wherever they may be, without requiring significant memory on their Palm Powered smartphone or wireless handheld. The service will automatically transcode music files stored on the home computer to an appropriate rate based on the available bandwidth.

"This GlooLabs powered service will bring an entirely new value to the streaming capabilities of Pocket Tunes Deluxe," said Mark Belliveau, director of business relations at NormSoft. "No longer will users be frustrated having to decide which audio files to copy to their Palm Powered smartphones or wireless handhelds."
