Pandora - A New Kind of Radio

Pandora - it's a new kind of radio that plays just the music you want to hear on your computer.

from their website ~
"On January 6, 2000 a group of musicians and music-loving technologists came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever."

Q: What is Pandora?

Pandora is a music discovery service designed to help you enjoy music you already know, and to help you discover new music you'll love.

It's powered by the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken, the Music Genome Project: a crazy project started back in early 2000 to capture the complex musical DNA of songs using a large team of highly-trained musicians.

Just tell us one of your favorite songs or artists and we'll launch a streaming station to explore that part of the musical universe.

All Email is not created equal!

No, I'm not writing about Spam email from strangers. Sometimes we get an email from a well meaning friend with a message or warning that just doesn't sound right. There are many chain letter and hoax emails circulating into in-boxes all the time. Check here for information about chain letters and hoax emails: Hoaxbusters "This document contains information about hoaxes, chain letters, urban myths and other bogus information being routed around the Internet."

There's an easy way to check for the validity of these messages before you pass them on to other unsuspecting friends in your email list. Use the search feature on any of these sites to see it the message might be true or false.
