Big Music Things Happening Online

Blink and You Could Miss It

They say celebrities die always die in groups of 3. Based on my inbox today, it seems like music-related news stories always land in groups of 4.

Music licensing company Rumblefish is offering a new service called Friendly Music, that lets you buy a song for $1.99 and have the rights to use that song in your non-commercial YouTube video. The initial selection of available songs is very small and it's not clear that people will pay 2 bucks to license music just so that they can post on YouTube (especially when there are other video sites that are not quite as zealous as the Google-owned YouTube about unlicensed music in videos). Just saying.

Indie Music Community and early online music store GarageBand.com is shutting down. Apple Computer's GarageBand software claims to have a good alibi, but I'm not sure.

Tired of carrying around clunky guitar effects pedals? Now all you need is your iPhone and a $40 piece of hardware.

And finally, the 50 Most Gimmicky Uses for the iPad.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
