From the founder of mp3.com, linspire, etc: "a personal music locker to
store all your music and make it accessible from anywhere on any device.
Unlike my.mp3, users are required to upload all their own files"
http://www.mp3tunes.com/

It will sync your tunes between devices and stream to a software player
(if you can get any of it to work)

i asked Michael Robertson the obvious question: "Slimserver is
definitely on our list to support! -- MR"

so who's for a hosted slimservice? solves a lot of consumer problems
(installation, configuration, noisy fans, large disks, upgrades, etc) -
just waiting on adsl upload speeds...

Interesting how times have changed. I was at a startup in 1999,
OneBigCD.com that offered exactly that service. We
had 40,000 CDs ripped and compressed, in 10 format/speed
combinations. We had RIAA blessing, were anti-piracy,
pro-record sales, etc. You had to put your CD in a computer drive,
which unlocked our database of files. You could play your paid for tunes
anywhere.

Then the same Michael Robertson put out his original mp3.com
blew off the labels and RIAA and crashed the whole industry.

I always liked the idea, as ripping CDs is a royal PITA.

Be great if you could share them with other people.
Whoops.

They released all their software with no documentation, they don't directly respond to tech support questions nor to refund requests. STAY AWAY!
