Orb August 30, 2006

Posted by sk in Blogroll, Computers & Internet, Miscellaneous, Music, Technology and Software.

Okay, my hiatus is finally over. I’ve decided to write another article on my favorite topic – yes, that’s right, the Mediterannean Shrublands. Naah, it’s about software. Anyway, if you have built up a nice collection of audio, video, and image files on your home computer and would like to be able to access it from anywhere, Orb is the perfect solution for you. Not only does it stream your audio and video files onto your favorite player (I tried it with WMP and WinAmp), it also allows you to share photos etc. with other people or to publish them to your website. And the fun doesn’t stop there. You can also access all files on your home computer through Orb.

I started using it last night and I’m already addicted to it. I love the way audio files are organized. It’s very similar to the way WMP 11 does it. The best thing about it is that it’s free. It’s pretty useful – try it when you get the time. Oh, and one more thing. It works only on Windows. 🙂

I did. Good concept. Especially since each song on iTunes and other music stores costs $0.99. But, because it’s not compatible with the iPod, I really don’t think it’s going to dent iTunes’ marketshare but it may affect other music stores. For that reason, I think it’ll be a failure.
