Amazon Offers 25 Days of Free Christmas Music

Posted by Chris Gohlke in "Digital Home News" @ 04:00 PM

"Every day through December 25, we're unveiling a new holiday song available to download free for a limited time. Check back daily to see what's next."

Tis the season, to pick up some free holiday themed MP3's. You can pick them us as you go or you can probably just pop in nearer to the 25th and grabl them all at once. My fingers are crossed for some Trans-Siberian Orchestra before the offer is over.

Free Zune? Yes Please!

Posted by Adam Krebs in "Zune Buy & Sell" @ 09:30 PM

"I got a call last week from someone at Matchstick, who asked me more questions, and then informed me I was eligible for a free 8 GB Zune! I was thrilled about this as I’ve been waiting for the Zune for a long time now. Ever since it was announced and released in the U.S. Now I get to have one of my very own! I don’t know which colour I’ll be receiving, hopefully black. I wish that I could have had the 80 GB version, as I have more than 8 GB of music, so that kind of sucks, but I’m not going to complain about a free Zune."

Typically I'm wary of these "just answer a few questions and get free stuff!" promotions, but if you're a Canadian between the ages of 16 and 29, what do you have to lose? If anyone else has or is planning to do this promotion, drop a comment in the forums to let us know how it goes/went.

Duran Duran Podcast Coming to Zune

Posted by Adam Krebs in "Zune Media" @ 10:30 AM

http://Zune.net/DuranDuran

Those Duran Duran fans out there (you know who you are) will be pleased to hear that your favorite not-quite-dead 80s pop band is launching a video podcast exclusively through Zune Marketplace. The series explores the making of Red Carpet Masacre and its first single, Falling Down. Additionally, episode six of the currently ten-part series features a Zune-exclusive interview with keyboardist Nick Rhodes about the original concept, how they got to working with Timbaland, and the creative process.

One thing I noticed about Duran Duran's Zune Social page was the inclusion of a tour description and dates. Up to this point I've only seen tour details on pages for On the Road artists, but I'd like to see it expanded to other currently touring artists who are in the Social database. It'd be cool to have the ability to put shows I'm attending or have recently seen on my Social page, and have the ability to get recommendations based on my music habbits. But maybe this is encroaching a little too much on the iLike scene...
