Latest Update Leverages Amazon Web Services To Enable Music On The Go

Waltham, Mass and London UK – February 6, 2008 – Oxy Systems, Inc. (www.oxysys.com), a leader in the development of advanced platforms for mobile applications and services, today announced the introduction of the phling! MusicStashSM.

The phling! MusicStash lets a phling! subscriber stream music they already own to their mobile phone from their home PC even when its turned off! Leveraging Amazon Web Services as the storage medium, the phling! MusicStash is a user’s personal storage “locker” where they can upload and store favorite music tracks for anytime playback via their mobile phone.

Oxy Systems’ President and CEO, Mike Krasner, said, “We successfully launched the phling! MusicLounge service in Switzerland last year on the Orange, Swisscom Mobile, and Sunrise mobile networks in partnership with Edipresse, the French language media giant. Since then we have listened to the feedback from our subscribers and are now revealing the MusicStash service, which meets the needs of those subscribers who prefer to turn off their PC while away from the home.”

Continuing, Krasner added, “With our focus firmly on usability and our users, we strive to continually add new features and capabilities to the phling! mobile music suite. Critically, we let users listen, share and discover music via the mobile device, however we’re particularly proud of the fact that unlike other services, phling! gives consumers access to the music they already own as well as to indie bands’ music and Internet radio.”

Currently available to all subscribers at no extra charge, the phling! MusicStash uses an easy and intuitive PC user interface to let users select the artists and albums they want to upload to, or delete from, their personal stash. The uploaded music files are stored securely on the Amazon Web Services servers and are available upon demand by the user using their phling! enabled phone.
