Technology Tuesday: Memolane – Replaying the soundtrack of your life

There’s no doubt that all your senses can trigger profound memories from the depths of your mind. Certain smells conjure up vacations spent half a world away, childhood memories and other events inextricably tied to a particular aroma. However, nothing for most people, hard core or casual music fans included, can place you at a time or place in your life the way hearing a particular song can. Music is the soundtrack of the “movie” of our life, constantly playing like the background music of a motion picture. It’s omnipresent, always playing and a great way to “bring you back” to a particular time.

What if you were able to make a timeline of every song you listen to and were able to browse through this timeline of your life? Well you can. This week we will look at web service called “Memolane”.

Memolane bills itself as a place to “See, Search and Share” your life. Through a variety of connected services, Memolane aggregates a ton of information and presents it in a neat & clean timeline that can be shared privately with friends, to the public, or not shared at all.

Technology Tuesdays: Subsonic Allows You To Bring Your Tunes Everywhere

Before we dive into this week’s subject matter, I’d like to say thanks in advance for reading. I look forward to this column which will be appearing on Tuesdays.

Sometimes it’s tough to stay on top of all the cool gadgets, apps, software, web services, and other things that makes our lives easier, better, more enjoyable and just plain more fun. While of course we are all music fans here, and that will clearly be a focus of the column, not everything will be music related. Photography, web services, communication, computers and many other topics will be covered in the coming weeks.

While my contact information will be in the footer of each column, I figure I’ll put it up here this week as I’d really like to hear from you. Feel free to get in touch with topics you’d like covered along with feedback and suggestions.

Many music fans have but one simple goal – to be able to listen to any of their tracks, anytime, on any device.  It takes a lot of time and expense to accumulate, organize and archive your music. It’s a bummer when you leave the cozy confines of your house only to remember you’d really like to listen to something you forgot to burn to CD or transfer to a portable music player. Likewise, when the 32GB storage is at capacity on your device, it’s disheartening to get to the “one in, one out” mode by having to decide which album no longer makes the cut.

There are more options than ever to keep your music playing. This week we’ll focus on Subsonic which is free, plays virtually any music format, is available on any operating system and on most all mobile devices.
