Disney :Steve's new job ?

forgive the momentary pun ....
But in all probability if disney decides to go ahead with the the proposed USD 6.4 billion takeover of Pixar, then its the gonna be the iJobs who would turn out to be the single largest individual stakeholder in the mickey company .
Which obviously lead to the speculations of what happens when jobs takes over the ailing behemoth ?
I think that it would be really stupid of stevie to lose his focus ...despite having its best ever quarter, Apple is the still the niche cool company and not the rock solid consumer technology company it always wanted to be....
but anyways im sure it must have put poor jobs in quite a spot ...
wonder what one of my best friend would comment on that (ps - he wants to buy out Disney someday ....)

Pandora's Box ....

An pretty grippin tale of a droppedout musician forming a dotcom( ofcourse a music oriented one ..) lead me to pandora

wonderful mix of technology and consumer behaviour
what it does is simple ..

Can you help me discover more music that I'll like?

Those questions often evolved into great conversations. Each friend told us their favorite artists and songs, explored the music we suggested, gave us feedback, and we in turn made new suggestions. Everybody started joking that we were now their personal DJs.

We created Pandora so that we can have that same kind of conversation with you.
We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like.

Over the past 5 years, we've carefully listened to the songs of over 10,000 different artists - ranging from popular to obscure - and analyzed the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time. This work continues each and every day as we endeavor to include all the great new stuff coming out of studios, clubs and garages around the world.

It has been quite an adventure, you could say a little crazy - but now that we've created this extraordinary collection of music analysis, we think we can help be your guide as you explore your favorite parts of the music universe.
