Can win over Itunes?, one of the major site has decided to sell music of more than 3 million unsigned bands. They are also working with Paypal for online payment system and don't forget that Myspace is owned by Newscorp.

I m not sure how this will affect Itunes, becuase Itunes offer signed bands as well and covers about 70% of US market in online digital music.

Other big player to jump is Microsoft who is going to launch "Zune", which is like a music download store.

Can A Call Center Employee use your credit card?

By now many of you (those of you who are in US) might have spoken/dealt with some one in India or other countries over the phone. Many call centers have opened up in India in recent years. Even major companies have opened their call centers to save cost.

But how safe is it? In other words, how safe is it to give credit card information to someone who is far away?

Recently, a call center Employee was arrested who was accused of using credit card of the customer for herself. This was not the only incident, but also back in June, and Employee in India took about $418,500.

Where did The Beatles Get their Name?

Have you ever wondered about the origin of the name of the bands/groups?
I came across a website where you can find (not all) some interesting facts about the origin of the band's name. Not all are the real answer but the webmaster has tried to come up with some alternatives.

Here is some from the website

CREED - This popular Florida band was named after former bassist Brian Marshall's
earlier band Mattox Creed.

DEF LEPPARD - Joe Elliot, lead singer, wanted to use the idea provided by the band Led Zeppelin's logo and transformed what he originally had as deaf leopard.

DEPECHE MODE - from the name of a fashion magazine, meaning hurry up fashion

BOB DYLAN - His real name is Robert Zimmerman - he liked the poet Dylan Thomas.
