Bye bye last.fm?

Read this if you’re using last.fm. This could be the final nail in their coffin (next to charging for the radio).

Last.fm frees the music

Last.fm
As of today, you can play full-length tracks and entire albums for free on the Last.fm website (in the US, UK & Germany reads the small print, but still). Quite a big move, and good news for music lovers everywhere.
Read the entire news on the last.fm blog.

Oh, and I’m here.

Last.fm

Last.fm
Ok, I absolutely adore Last.fm, it appeals to the statistics whore in me. It’s also a great way to discover new music. For those unfamiliar with it, you download a program which tracks what music you listen to. This is then turned into statistics you can view on their website (all RSS powered, so you easily add it to for example your blog). Recently played, weekly charts, fave bands, you name it.
It also lets you see music you may like as well, based on what it knows you love. And you can see a list of other people with a similar music taste.
Anyway, the list goes on and on, check it out if you’re a music nut.

And, now we also have a last.fm group for X111.com members:
http://www.last.fm/group/X111.com
Join it! If we get a group of people on there it will generate a weekly chart based on what we’ve all been listening to, which in turn could be fun to add to the site.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
