    Hello Ajinkya. I like your blog especially the topic Last.fm. Thanks for writing this. Worth a read. Kinda nosebleed but still amazing. =) I’ll bookmark this if you wont mind. Thanks.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mix view’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to.
    Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them.

    Reading this it really makes you think of how social networks have really evolved over the past few years. Really amazing how fast we now interact, communicate and share ideas, thoughts, events with people globally as part of these networks. Is this internet 2.0 ?

    Yeah, I try to check this kind of social site because except listening music you may also socialize to other people.I was absolutely music lover and music is my world. Its a little bit addictive too.
