*A free download of Jay-Z’s new album “Magna Carta Holy Grail” was made available exclusively to the first 1 million Samsung Smartphone and tablet users just after midnight Thursday. But according to USA Today, the launch did not go off as smoothly as planned.
The app didn’t work for many customers who found themselves frustrated when instead of the album, got a white screen with the black MCHG logo with a spinning icon that quickly disappeared. Many took to Twitter to vent about the technical glitches. But far more flooded social media with their excitement about getting the album, and for several hours dominated Twitter’s top trends.
The album, which was supposed to be exclusive to Samsung customers for three days, leaked not long after the midnight launch when it showed up on scores of blogs, file-sharing sites and torrent trackers. The “MCHG” app itself was hacked, with several unofficial clone versions popping up that included anti-government statements and a picture of President Obama wearing headphones. Those apps were downloaded only by users of unofficial sites.

How the leaks affect sales when the album becomes available for purchase Tuesday remains to be seen.

Instead of going back to reality television like everyone else, the musical crew has created a new app for family and children called “FamBam: Got to Have Music.”
It’s an animated, interactive children’s book that can be used on a mobile device and shared by the whole family.
The app is geared toward children 3 to 6 years old. Kids can watch or read the story on their own, and flip through pages and be completely entertained.
“FamBam is a Norwood family term of endearment that declares our exclamation of happiness about family,” states Willie Norwood. “We’re creating FamBam apps because we believe that devices like the iPhone and iPad have the potential to be revolutionary learning tools – if used properly. We think technology can create new ways for parents to connect with and help their children, and we’re creating the products that we want to use with our grandchildren,” proclaims Sonja Norwood, the family’s matriarch.
The book teaches children about music and gives them the opportunity to appreciate different types as well as learn to resolve conflicts in a positive way.
A Canadian media company is giving what other people are asking for – a “Brownout.”
It’s an app that gets rid of all things Chris Brown from a user’s browser.
“It is nearly impossible to go on the Internet without reading something about him, he is always doing something outrageously moronic,” said Sam Sutherland, online producer for AUX. “If he wants to get a tattoo on his neck that kinda looks like Rihanna we are going to write about it. But at some point, it reaches Chris Brown idiocy saturation.”
Where was this app when Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton were making us all throw up. What about the Britney Spears madness? Just sayin’.
Anyway, Brownout places a box over the singer’s face when images of him pop up and hides his name when it appears in headlines.
AUX is also the producer of the Nickelblock, a plug-in that allows users to avoid the onslaught of headlines and images of rock band Nickelback.
Sutherland mentioned that his company could be developing blocks for other celebs like Donald Trump.
Hmm, in that case, we just might be down with that one.
