How to Listen to Free Music

We can help you find free music.

We can help you find free music.

Here’s a wonderful website that allows you to listen to free music on your computer over the internet.  It is called Jango.  You can even choose the kind of music or the artist.  Right now for instance you can listen to Christmas music and even choose from several varieties.  There are also apps for your android or iphone so you can also listen to Jango in the car.

You can listen to different stations like music from the 80’s or Country or Indie.  You can also make up your own radio station with all your favorites.

Here is the site: Jango.com.

Other sites are CBC music webpage, last.fm, and Yahoo music.

I’ll add to this list as I find them.

Cool, New Uses for Google from Lifehacker

I just found a great post on Lifehacker that tells little known but helpful uses for Google, like finding flight information by putting in an airline and flight number. Don’t know when your friend’s flight is coming in? Just put in the airline and flight number. Also you can easily convert currencies and find out the time in foreign countries.
