    Where did the excellent story about how Diddy owes DMN $150 go?

    I am not sure TuneIn should be included. They focus on radio, not specifically music. They are really just a library of radio stations and podcasts. They have no original content and very little licensed content, with little if any of it being music. Most of their focus lately seems to be revolving around non-music content or rebuiling their application.

      You could say the same thing about terrestrial radio. Still a lot of music.

        Perhaps. But TuneIn is really more like radio itself, not the station. All it does is tune in stations already available. One could say if TuneIn is included in these numbers, companies that make physcial radios like Pioneer, Sony, Eton, CCrane, etc. should be included. It’s the same concept.

    Fascinating. Amazing how so many businesses, today, are created soley to be sold.

    Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is that if you are marketing your property yourself, one of the concerns you need to be mindful of upfront is when to deal with home inspection reports. As a FSBO retailer, the key towards successfully moving your property and saving money on real estate agent commissions is know-how. The more you realize, the better your property sales effort will likely be. One area in which this is particularly critical is home inspections.

    I am curious to find out what blog system you have been using? I’m having some minor security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any solutions?
