Before you get too excited, this isn’t Yahoo offering free downloads for all. What they are offering is an audio search facility that finds samples of specific tracks and available legal download locations.
Visit the Yahoo website and try what is, according to the company, the most comprehensive index of audio files available to UK web users – over 35 million audio files from major music services and independent publishers they claim.
The beta search engine scours content from the net, Yahoo’s own network as well as major providers such as Apple’s iTunes, Napster and Wippit. In addition, independent publishers can submit content to the index through Media RSS, providing users open access to original and timely audio content.
