OVERRAN: Beats Music puts Registration of new Accounts on-hold
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:58 CET under 01 - General News

Following this week's launch of its streaming service, Beats Music sent out and E-Mail update last night where it explained that they "have been blown away by the love that made them the #1 Music App in the iTunes Store". However, due to the extremely high volume of interest in the Beats Music service, some users are experiencing issues; something I've also read about on Twitter. While Beats Music said that most people are unaffected, its priority is to give everyone a great experience and the company seems to have expected such an issue and has therefore been prepared. Because of the weak experience some users faced, Beats Music is now going to hold off on letting more people in while the company is working on a resolution.

Customers can now "upgrade their mytaxi experience" - as myTaxi wrote - with the new "Mercedes-Benz Taxi" feature in Germany and enjoying "high class comfort" with two simple taps - by confirming the pickup location, tapping "Options" and select "Mercedes-Benz Taxi".
