Yahoo portal targets music fans

Portal powerhouse Yahoo yesterday entered the growing field of MP3 music entertainment sites by introducing Yahoo Digital, a site featuring streaming programming, and which sells MP3 downloads.

The newest Yahoo Net property lets you listen to and download music, and watch music-related Web video broadcasts. Using tools on the site, you can re-mix popular songs and, starting in September, "Yahoo! Open Mic" will let you submit your personal musical tracks online.

Through Yahoo's partnership with EMusic.com, customers will be able to choose from among 22,000 MP3 tracks, sold online for US99 cents per song and $US8.99 per album.

Yahoo Digital also offers eight on-demand video channels, including live and repeat broadcasts of concerts. Its streaming content includes Western, horror, anime (Japanese cartoons), and fashion video feeds. Yahoo plans to add more channels.

Locally, Yahoo today announced the launch of the Yahoo! Australia & NZ Music site (http://music.yahoo.com.au), which combines the resources of several partners to provide a range of information on bands and music news.

With a local emphasis, the site delivers artist profiles, biographies and discographies, as well as independent album reviews and tour dates.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
