​Samsung’s Milk Music goes premium for $4 a month

No ads, high fidelity audio and offline listening are among the perks

Samsung's music streaming service is going premium at the competitive price of $4 a month.

A handful of features are made available to Milk Music users who go premium. The subscription places no limit on the number of tracks that can be skipped and it does away with advertisements altogether.

Music playback also benefits from an upgrade. Songs can be streamed in high quality audio and can be downloaded to a compatible smartphone/tablet/smartwatch for offline listening.

Samsung has not disclosed the specifications of its “high audio quality” and the number of stations that can be cached is limited at 25.

Samsung Australia launched Milk Music in February of 2015. “We are now introducing a premium service to give our customers access to high audio quality and the ability to enjoy music offline,” said Prasad Gokhale, vice president of Samsung’s mobile division.

Seventeen Galaxy devices have the market on Samsung’s streaming service. Following is a list of all compatible products, as per the official press release:

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
