| thought my reply should actually be shared 
| with you in case you are also thinking along 
| the same lines like him (or her??). I am 
| actually going to assume that Mr. Anonymous

| good for him. So here goes


Ubuntu One Music Store Pushed In Rhythmbox

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the features that was talked about 
| and proposed a few months back was a music 
| store for Ubuntu where one could easily 
| purchase music and somewhat fits in with 
| Canonical's plans for the Ubuntu Software 
| Store (or the "Ubuntu Software Center" as 
| it's now called). Plans were laid out for an 
| Ubuntu One Music Store and the first 
| packages to support this in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 
| are now available.


Rhythmbox + Last.fm

,----[ Quote ]
| I havenât used Rhythmboxâs Last.fm to 
| scrobble lately because it doesnât let me 
| âloveâ a song. Well, that is until I found 
| this particular Last.fm plugin for Rhythmbox 
| called âNew Style Last.fm Scrobblerâ thanks 
| to Juergen Kreileder. In Amarok, itâs pretty 
| much seamless. Thereâs a heart I could just 
| click while the song is playing so I could 
| mark it as a loved track.


Ubuntu Switches to Yahoo! Search â Kinda

,----[ Quote ]
| Thereâs been a lot of noise recently in the 
| Ubuntu community about the announcement that 
| Canonical is planning to switch the default 
| search engine and home page in Firefox to 
| Yahoo! Search. People are tweeting about it, 
| podcasting about it, and generally getting 
| worked up.  Some think that itâs the end of 
| the world (or an MS takeover of Canonical), 
| some could care less.



Ubuntu One Music Store: A Real Business?

,----[ Quote ]
| Where will the music come from? A new
| online music store? Or some existing store?
| My best guess â and this is purely a guess
| â is some sort of connection to the Amazon
| MP3 music store, since Shuttleworth briefly
| mentioned Amazon during the Ubuntu 9.10
| launch phone call with media. Also, Amazon
| in April 2008 released an MP3 downloader
| program for Linux, including support for
| Ubuntu.


Ubuntu One Music Store

,----[ Quote ]
| For those who donât know, the Lucid UDS has
| begun today.
| One of the most interesting yet controversial
| meetings is this: the Ubuntu One Music Store.
| What it will be is currently left to the
| imagination since no specification has
| apparently have been drafted yet. Selling
| music online has always been a controversial
| topic, and that adds interest in such a
| feature.
