We were pretty taken with music discovery service Turntable.fm, but unfortunately it has turned down a familiar path for media apps: blocking users from outside the US.
Danny at Gizmodo reports that the service has now disappeared for all international users, due to “licensing constraints”. We’ve seen that happen with many other online music services, so it’s not exactly surprising; let’s hope that it manages to overcome those issues eventually.
This is also a good chance to point out to anyone who hasn’t already heard that Danny is the new Australian editor of Gizmodo, our gadget-obsessed sibling site. Make him feel welcome by saying g’day on Gizmodo’s Whitenoise open thread.
