hey, í've just read this (posted on the mp3 "SOPHIE'S corner" forum, who's Sophie anyway?):
November 14, 2003
CNET Networks representatives said the company aims to augment its position as a provider of interactive content through the acquisition, with plans to enter the online music market through MP3.com. However, a company representative said the revamped site would not compete with music download services such as Napster. Instead, the company plans to turn MP3.com into a source of information for digital music.
CNET Networks believes MP3.com can attract an audience similar to visitors of its GameSpot Web site, which features video game reviews and downloads. The company did not announce a timeframe for its planned relaunch of MP3.com but said it is interested in connecting with artists and record companies that have previously distributed their music via the site.
mmm, source of information, a ha
i'm doubting now it will get better,
oh ok, let's wait and see
Aw, man. MP3.com was "da shiznit" a few years ago. Without it, I would not have discovered Echoing Green, Cosmicity, or Provision. Or Paris By Air or Punjabi By Nature or Guardians Of The Earth for that matter.
Admittedly, though, the site was going downhill and getting overrun by the mainstream acts that really didn't need help to sell more product. The constant begging for demographic information just to hear a sample didn't help much either.
I guess I'm going to have to watch the Announcements/Plugs forum section here a lot more closely.

Which sites provide links to other artists and they are free?
Let's stick together with one site, so it will be easier for audiences to look for us.
\"There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.\"
- Pablo Picasso
\"The world only goes round by misunderstanding.\"
- Charles Baudelaire
\"It is quality, not quantity.\"
\"why is it feel like a greatful dead show here? like that hippe that constantly talks about one band and how they changed their lives.\"
PLEASE NO MORE \"I am a robot music.\" You are not a robot. Learn to program better like human beings.\"
Electro is House music. If you don\'t like House music, please don\'t put down Electro, because it is trendy to say it. It might suprise you that Electro and House music were invented by Gay Black Americans in the mid 80s. They weren\'t invented by the beatless people who like to coin new trendy phrases.
I am so tired of \"I want to be Depeche Mode or Erasure for the last 25 years.\" I hope I am not the only one. 25 years is a quarter of century and about a 1/3 of human life. If a person spends a 1/3 of his or her life having the same tastes, I don\'t know if that person acquired enough information to have an interesting life or has a problem understanding he or she is no longer a teenager.
So called artists who never change, why do you call yourself an artist again?
Just a thought for everyone: Us A Different Drum artists have recently experienced a lot of success by posting free mp3s on amazon.com. Amazon recently opened their site up, allowing artists to post mp3s for free download on there. And they have charts that keep track of how various artists are doing, just like mp3.com did.
Sure, you can't customize your page like you did on mp3 or anything like that. But it's a FREE place to post mp3s, and it will link the CD you're trying to sell (through amazon of course) directly to the mp3 download page. And finally, amazon.com is an even bigger web name than mp3.com was.
Just a suggestion. :-)
I felt like a bit of a poser using the name Cosmicity. So, now I\'m just using my name. -Me
Totally agree with pop here though I don't care if it costs me money to pay for streaming bandwidth. I'm just boggled that the other mp3 sites haven't like bent over backwards and created some deals to grab those mp3 customers. I mean come on put up something on a website, do some advertising, seriously at this point it's homever is going to step up and really push their service and advertise themselves that's going to be the winner here.
If ampcast gets off their asses and makes a play that's where I'll go but so far I've seen noone really jumping at the major void that mp3.com has made. I'll wait for someone to make that grab . .
Yeah, Kris, I'm kind of wondering why one of them hasn't made a power play to get the mp3.com artists as well. All I've gotten so far is an email from hitquarters.com saying, "hey, since mp3.com is closing, you wanna join us". Big marketing campaign there pal, lol. Now's the time for one of them to take out a loan and grab the artists.
Hitquarters is a joke all they are there for is to stroke a bunch of A&R guys egos. I don't want to see fat a&R guys on the front page I want to see bands.
