Spotify and Hulu Offering Student Bundle ➝

From Spotify’s press release:

As the new school year gets underway, Spotify and Hulu are partnering to offer U.S. college students the perfect streaming entertainment bundle for their busy lives. Starting today, eligible students can sign up for Spotify Premium for Students, now with Hulu to not only stream music but also their favorite television shows and movies through a single subscription plan, at just $4.99 a month. This is the first step the companies are taking to bundle their services together, with offerings targeted at the broader market to follow.

I’m not a college student, and therefore, I’m unable to partake in this promotion. But I am excited about that last line quoted above — “with offerings targeted at the broader market to follow.” I don’t particularly like the idea of subscription music services. I don’t listen to music on a daily basis, preferring podcasts instead, and I only listen to a handful of new albums each year. But if I had the option to bundle Spotify alongside a service I already pay for at a reduced price, I’d consider it.

The Right Mac Laptop to Buy for a Student ➝

I couldn’t agree more with Jason Snell’s recommendations. The 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro are the two best notebooks available. Buy the MacBook if you care more about portability and the MacBook Pro if you care more about performance. If price sensitivity has you considering the MacBook Air, do your best to avoid it, the low-resolution display is just offensive at this point.
