This is a test. I'm trying out Windows Live Writer. Why?
- It enables off-line editing
- It has a WYSIWYG editor
- It works with a bunch of different blog services like WordPress, Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, Moveable Type (what I use), etc.
- It's free
From the Windows Live web site:
Windows Live Writer Beta is a desktop application that makes it easy to publish rich content to your blog.
Via Techcrunch, this looks interesting...Amie Street:
Amie Street, which launched in July, has a brilliant DRM-free music sales model. Bands upload music, which can then be downloaded for free by users. As songs become popular, the site starts to charge for it. They start at $0.01 and go up to $0.99. Users looking for popular new stuff go right to the more expensive songs.
...a Web-based media player that gives users access to their digital music library from any computer. Similar to Songbird, it streams your personal library from the Internet but it runs completely inside any browser.
Streampad is a free service. Users download a Java desktop application that stores the metadata from all MP3 and AC3 files (protected and unprotected) it finds on your computer, including those that come from iTunes. Then, when that same user logs into Streampad from another computer, they can listen to music streamed directly from their home computer.
