Murfie in Yahoo’s Upworthiest Tech of 2013!

Yahoooooo!

Murfie is p-l-e-a-s-e-d as p-u-n-c-h to be on Yahoo’s “Upworthiest Tech of 2013” list, among other great names like Sonos!

We seriously want to thank YOU (yes, you!!!) for helping to make this happen. If it wasn’t for each and every one of our members, who love using Murfie, and who gladly spread the word about our service, we wouldn’t be where we are today. You all rock!

If you haven’t already, please keep spreading the good word about Murfie and share the recent Yahoo article.

Here’s to an even better 2014! ;)

Your Wish is Our Command: Murfie Wishlists!

Dearest Murfieans,

You asked, and we delivered:  we are very pleased to announce the launch of our Wishlist feature on Murfie!

When you come across an album that intrigues you, just click “Add to Wishlist.” An album that’s not in stock or not available for sale? Just click “Add to Wishlist.” An album that you’re not entirely sure you want to buy yet? Just click “Add to Wishlist!” Gettin’ the picture?

The album will be added to your Wishlist, which you can then see in the “My Collection” tab. If an album is not available on Murfe, our expert music-finders will get to work trying to source a copy for you—no extra charge. We love music as much as you do and want you to have every disc your heart desires!

If you had any outstanding trade requests in your account, those are also now Wishlist items in your account too:  we figured you wish you had those!

When a disc in your Wishlist becomes available, you’ll be notified via e-mail. Nice, right?

We hope you’ve noticed that we’ve been on a ROLL lately with new features (it IS March madness, after all)! Bam! Boom!! Bang!!! Hope you’re all digging that Unpurchase button too: http://blog.murfie.com/2013/03/05/introducing-the-unpurchase-button-your-new-bff/

Wait ’til you see what’s next! :-)

Xoxo,
The crew at Murfie

2nd Time’s the Charm? On TIME Again.

As the saying goes, good things come in pairs. This is now a proven irrefutable fact — because we’ve snagged ANOTHER feature in TIME Techland. Remember the first one?

Well, here’s the latest article, which is a Q&A with Murfie CEO Matt Younkle. IMHO, the best sound bite is this…

Our take at Murfie is that, moving forward, there will always be a large group of people that want to own their music, not just rent it. I mean music as part of your culture. I think you should be able to own your culture, not just rent your culture.

Also, IMHO, this second tweet from @Techland should be framed. What do you think? I think a classic wood frame would look nice.
