Your own cool music station

The site did not try to sell you anything. It offered a nice way to choose your favorite band or song and create a radio station. They have technology that matches your choice to similar artists and songs and adds them to your station. Don't like the songs they have added you can right click and choose the options.

Pandora.com is a great site. Enjoy.

4 yr old who knows all the 50 states

Over the holidays my neice visiting me from Texas taught me a great lesson. Children learn geography in school and my niece is not evenin school. She knows all the 50 states and where they are physically located. Thanks in part to being the daughter of two software engineers and a nice site where any kid can play a easy to use and highly educational game Map fun and test

Needless to stay I passed after 3 tries.
