Samsung is bringing its free Milk Music streaming radio service to more users via the Web as promised in January.

Until now, Milk Music has been available as an app only for Samsung's smartphones, tablets, TVs and smartwatches, but starting Monday it will be available to anyone with a browser.

Users will need to create an account on Samsung's Web site to access the service .

It's been one year since Samsung launched the Milk Music app for smartphones with a catalog of 13 million songs.

Like the app version, the web-based Milk Music will be powered by the well-established Slacker Internet radio service. Users will have access to 200 curated radio stations across different genres. Samsung did not provide precise lists of artists or albums associated with Milk Music.

Instead of the dial interface on the app, the Web version of the service has a radio-like tuning bar to switch between genres and songs.

Users can create custom stations, and also playlists of favorite songs and stations.

Besides going up against Apple's iTunes Radio, the Milk Music Web service will compete with streaming radio services from companies like its partner Slacker, Pandora and Spotify. Unlike services that offer paid subscription options for ad-free listening, Milk Music is ad supported and includes a US$3.99 per month premium option that allows skipping songs.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
