Can't Select Airplay Device for Output Audio - MacRumors Forums
Can't Select Airplay Device for Output Audio
It shows up as one of the options, but when I select it to automatically reselects the built-in speakers. Any ideas?

Killing coreaudio fixed it for me without a reboot:
sudo kill `ps -ax | grep 'coreaudiod' | grep 'sbin' |awk '{print $1}'`

How You Turn Music Into Money in 2012 (Spoiler: Mostly iTunes) - Robinson Meyer - The Atlantic
Just taking a first look at these data, it becomes clear that buying music from artists directly -- through iTunes, Amazon or Bandcamp -- is the best thing you can do to support their music-making. Keating made 97% of her revenue through people just buying her music, whether through physical sales or digital download. Spotify subscribers pay their ten bucks a month for the service, and that even feels like a healthy little monthly gift to music-making. But it's not nearly as helpful to the artists as buying an album or a song from iTunes, Bandcamp or Amazon.

How To: Remote-Control Spotify from iPhone or Android… on Mac, Windows, or Even Another Phone |
If you’re one of the 15 to 26 million people who use Spotify to listen to music on the regular, you’d probably appreciate being able to control it remotely from your iPhone, Android, or other device, so you don’t have to walk over to your computer, Android, or iPhone in order to skip a song, queue up a new playlist or album, and so on.

Luckily for you, we’ve found several apps that let you do exactly that, whether you’re trying to control Spotify on a Mac, Windows, or even an iOS or Android device. It’s not lazy; it’s practical.

If you have an old computer, iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch laying around — say, like, after you’ve upgraded to a new smartphone — you can leave the old one connected to some speakers running Spotify and use your new one to control it. However, there are many other reasons to control Spotify on one device using another (parties, the couch, the bed, or even the car, in the case of the Android-to-Android app we found).

Spotify vs. Rdio: Who Has The Exclusives? | Epicenter |
The new generation of streaming music services like Spotify, Rdio, and MOG have more music than you could consume in a lifetime. But how much of it would you really want to listen to?

There’s no shortage of great roundups and reviews showing the pros and cons of each service, but they rarely talk specifically about the different music you can find on each. They’ve all built impressive catalogs, but it’s nearly impossible to tell from casual browsing which artists and albums are exclusives for each.

Fortunately, both Rdio and Spotify offer powerful developer APIs, making it simple to compare the two. (Sadly, MOG doesn’t offer an API, so isn’t included.)

For this test, I needed a large set of popular, well-loved albums to test. I used the top 5,000 albums from Rate Your Music, the quirky 11-year-old online community dedicated to rating and reviewing music. These albums span all genres, from klezmer to chiptune, with a total of 2,282 different artists across 70 years of recorded music.

Spotify + Echo Nest == w00t! « Music Machinery
Yesterday, at the SanFran MusicTech Summit, I gave a sneak preview that showed how Spotify is tapping into the Echo Nest platform to help their listeners explore for and discover new music.  I must say that I am pretty excited about this. Anyone who has read this blog and its previous incarnation as ‘Duke Listens!’ knows that I am a long time enthusiast of Spotify (both the application and the team).
