ladies and gentlemen, a great day is upon us (well actually it was yesterday), today Music can begin for me.
confused? yep me too.
Y’see I hate Windows Media player, no matter how much they improve it, it still feels like something built from the ugly days of Windows ME *shudders. And I hate iTunes… why? because Apple, are just as bloody evil as microsoft – the player is too bulky for my feeble laptop, and it tries to pimp me stuff that I don’t want or like.
Yesterday a better, faster, slicker, more community driven solution was released: Songbird. Hip hip hooray!
I’ve been keen to get my hands on this for a while – since, grabbing a developer version many moons ago…. I loved it. Take a look and try it for yourself.
Think of it as all the open sourceness that makes FF good with gazzillions of plugins to make things better.
Personally I’ve already added the coverflow feature to scroll through my albums just like Mac-ites can do (will probably remove it later tho, because its a bit pointless), I’ve also added a Twitter plugin to post my music choice, a last.fm plugin and a plugin for finding if my music choice is around in my area for gigs 🙂
Very niiiice. Have a look at it (if hate WMPlayer and don’t want iTunes)
