BudgetBeamer and Mystery Songs Revealed

BudgetBeamer and Mystery Songs Revealed

The response from last week's MP3beamer announcement has been fantastic!

Take a look at the new Linksys
and SMC wireless devices
It's clear many people want their music collection on multiple devices from any location and that's exactly what MP3beamer accomplishes like no other product. In my own home, I now have wireless access to the entire music collection from every room. I purchased a couple of Linksys music units, which become wireless boomboxes. For those rooms with entertainment centers or TV, I purchased the SMC music receiver. Both have displays and remotes so anyone in the family can select the artist, albums and playlists they want to play in their room.

Special thanks to all the people who submitted guesses in the mystery music challenge. Here are the titles of the mystery songs from last week's contest as well as the people who identified them and won an MP3beamer in the process.

Song 1 - This song was Front Of My Room from a fantastic trip hop band called Karmacoda. What's "trip hop," you say? Downtempo electronic music. What's downtempo electronic music? Well, if you listen to it while riding a bike you'll end up peddling backwards - take a listen and you'll see what I mean. Enough talk - go buy their Evidence album, which is loaded with amazing tracks like Tragic. Congratulations to Scott Jarema!

Song 2
- Don't Cry For Me by The Cheeps - Twisted garage punk flavored with the sounds of spooky organs, retarded horns, and the snotty, hopeless, beer-soaked vocals of Leather Pants. $8.88 buys an album crammed with energy and emotion. Congratulations to Chad Wuertz for identifying this song and your MP3beamer is on its way!

Song 3 - With Me by Wendy Lee - Don't be confused by this sample song, which may seem like Easy Listening - Wendy Lee is classic country. Don't believe me? Listen to You Ain't Getting Any then use QuickPay to put this album in your locker for whenever you want to download it! Drew Moseley was first to identify this song - so find a spot for your MP3beamer machine, Drew!

For those wanting their own MP3beamer, we have a special opportunity for the next 7 days. To avoid possible back order issues, we have worked with our partner sub300 to make a second model of MP3beamer available. For just $319.99 you can purchase the BudgetBeamer. This machine is not as sleek or powerful as the original MP3beamer, so it means it will take a bit longer to rip each CD, but it has the same storage capacity of about 1,400 CDs. However, at $80 cheaper, it's a fantastic bargain for a new computer and you can check out the MP3beamer software at the same time.

Of course, if you already have an extra computer, you can transform it into an MP3beamer by purchasing just the MP3beamer software for $69.95. This gives you immediate digital access to download all the software you need to turn most modern PCs into an MP3beamer (latest Linspire, Mp3beamer, MP3beamer Sync). This is a great weekend project for those interested in examining the latest in digital music technology.
