Imagine an iTunes library that was totally free and available online at no cost. Sounds pretty good, right? Well that is Spotify, a startup Morten Lund tipped me off to a couple of years ago. I tried it out and liked it, but forgot all about its downloadable client when I had to format my hard-drive. TechCrunch recently reviewed the service.
Now the service has been hacked and the email address, birth dates, gender, postal codes and billing receipt details were potentially exposed, the company says.
Spotify has raised more than $20 million from Northzone Ventures and Creandum, according to data from Thomson Reuters (publisher of PEHub.com).
