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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
