Jared Newan on Best Buy’s new cloud music service:

To listen on smartphones, you’ve got to register each handset by handing over its make, model and phone number. Then Best Buy e-mails you a link to the application by text message, and you have to activate the phone by downloading the app and plugging in a confirmation code. Oh, and an app for Apple devices isn’t available yet, even though Best Buy’s PC software relies on iTunes to sync your library.
