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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
