Virgin America has teamed up with Spotify and The New York Times to stream music and deliver news articles aboard its planes. If it’s new in-flight ViaSat WiFi connection can stream Netflix videos 35,000 feet in the air, then music files and news articles should be a cinch, right? We hope so, because Spotify will make its whole catalog accessible onboard Virgin America flights — the company claims it’s the first airline to offer the service — along with city-inspired mood playlists. – Mariella Moon, Engadget
