Celebrity EntourageDaniel Ek is co-founder and CEO of easily the hottest digital music service.
In just a couple of years, Spotify's paying subscribers number 2.5 million and is now the largest subscription music on the Web. The company just launched a Pandora-like Web radio service and rolled out a new app platform.
Ek, like Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, is a fan of wrist-portable gadgets
"I'd say my favorite gadget of the moment is the Up Band," Ek said. "It's a cool gadget that tracks everything you do--how much you're walking, how well you're sleeping, even whether it's a deep or light sleep. It even tracks how much you're eating and drinking. All the data is then uploaded to your iPhone. For someone like me who's always traveling, spending what can seem like most of my life on planes, it's a great way to monitor my daily health.
"I've found myself taking a few extra laps around the Spotify office just to keep my stats up," Ek said. "It kind of helps with work productivity too."
