Okay, we all know about www.pandora.com. Did you know about www.beck.com - where Beck is recording covers of full CDs and make them available track/track for free downloads? How 'bout the cool new music download site - www.jamendo.com? Gotta love th e Internet!

This is the coolest site in the world! You just go to this site, and skip all the numbers and get right to a human. This works great for "unlisted" number on almost all tech support/banking sites. gethuman.com--customer service help, contact info, complaints, praise, ratings for businesses

Straight from the horse's mouth. It ain't true that FB uses your photos to sell stuff to the world.
