new myspace

Once upon a time, MySpace was relevant. It no longer is. Well, at least not in the eyes of the hardcore tech enthusiast. Facebook, Twitter and the like have swooped in to steal whatever bit of thunder the social network had left. Since those two took prominence, MySpace has tried to take on several new identities to try and restore the iconic name. All of it surrounded music, though the latest changes might be the most drastic yet.

The site is now a streaming music and radio service, but still promotes a heavy dosage of social networking goodness to go along with it. It’s an interesting concept, though nothing that hasn’t already been done in modular fashion. You can learn more about that here, if you want.

But we thought you should also know that there is an Android app coming for it soon. We’re not sure if that’ll make us care for the service  any more than we already do (hint: the care-o-meter is barely moving right now), but if any of you happen to still be clinging to the “in” site of the glory years of social networking you’ll be happy to hear this news. No word yet on when, exactly, it’ll arrive, but it’s coming.
