Pandora x Last FM

TechCrunch » Pandora and Last.fm Together…sort of – I couldn’t work out which one of Last.fm and Pandora I liked best for my music recommendation needs. Now someone’s sorted out my dilemma, they’ve mashed the two together. Hoorah!

Using iTunes to backup your music

iTunes to CD-DVD

Now here’s a tip I’ve been waiting for. It’s not rocket science. It’s iTunes science!

Who cares about Apple, Creative Labs, Sony and all those guys. Surely the best MP3 players simply have to be made by Pez. It’s got a tiny memory, looks really flmsy, the battery life is bound to be shocking. But there’s something strangely desirable about this PEZ MP3 Player.

The site I found it on CoolestShop.com has some other really nice stuff in stock too: nice teeshirts, rude trainers, and more.

Shows the power of a bit of controversy online. The digital equivalent of kids standing round a schoolyard fight. “Scrap! scrap! scrap!”.
