Narrow your search
If Microsoft wants to make music search a core component of its new search engine, it ought to consider buying Grooveshark.
The search engine for music files filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Tuesday to help protect against record company lawsuits, and it looks like they've taken one of my favorite sites, Songerize, down with them.
Find music and play it on your iPhone with this online music database app.
Created by the developer of the now-defunct Songerize, Songite lets you enter the name of any song to hear it right now.
Also: The Weather Channel has a new, ad-supported iPhone app; SeeqPod has filed for bankruptcy protection; and AdMob launches a new iPhone Download Exchange Program.
What does this app bring to the table that other music search engines don't? Plenty.
I wondered how Grooveshark was able to avoid the record industry lawsuits faced by other on-demand streaming companies like Imeem and Seeqpod. Turns out, it wasn't.
Possibly the best iPhone Web app yet: vtap trumps built-in iPhone YouTube app
A few developments this week of note.
Songbeat takes aim at the digital-downloading business with its new player, which can record music streams from across the Web. But is it just like radio to cassette?
