JamLegend is one of the best Online Music Gaming websites we have ever come across. If you’re a music lover and would like to play some music then this site is for you.

If you want to try it out first, they’ve got a few demo songs which you can play without registering. From our experience it was very entertaining, hence we went ahead and registered to review how it’s like.

I’m not sure how many people would use this feature for social bookmarking and how many would use this feature for spamming their own communities and websites. I would not be surprised if this feature fails, there isn’t much into this really!

Yahoo gives up search for Microsoft


Microsoft is going strong with their products lately to compete with Google,  Yahoo would soon be shutting down it’s search engine and would be handling ad sales whereas Microsoft would be directing the traffic to the data with Bing.


The combined search market share of Yahoo and Microsoft would approach 30%. That's still far below Google's 65%, but analysts say it may provide enough of a critical mass at least to stave off further Google advances and help the enlarged search engine gain some ground.

Soon you would be searching with Bing from Yahoo’s Homepage.Bye bye Yaaahhoooo---ooowoooh!.
