MusicAndFiles – Find Music Downloads

Music and files is a much needed search engine that lets you find downloads of the music you’re looking for on the main filesharing and uploading sites, including Rapidshare, MegaUpload and MediaFire. I tried it out and managed to find albums I had been looking for on other sites without success – in fact it found a good number of them. It’s easy to use: just type in the name and then click on the list to be directed to the download site.

Sites like RapidShare offer free downloads that are slow, but you can be getting on with something else as it’s going on in the background, and they have premium services that let you get faster downloads for a subscription. One option is to take a minimum subscription for a short period and be ready with a list of all the music you want to download so you can organise it quickly, and for those on a tight budget the slower downloads are still bearable. It takes about half an hour for a whole album depending on your connection.

The filesharing sites do filter out pirate copies but it can take a bit of time if somebody has just uploaded one. When I was searching I could see a list of recent searches, and these included searches for material still protected by copyright. With new legislation on the way and tough penalties for filesharing pirate copies it’s important to make sure what you’re downloading is legal. Perhaps the filesharing sites will need to make it clear which ones have been approved for download and which are new uploads and not checked yet.


FreeGameToyz – Free Interactive Games Online

The games on this site are all free, with many selected from the web and others submitted by users. There’s a massive selection with all sorts of games: action, adventure, dressing-up, driving, fighting, educational and more. It links to other associated sites with more specialised games just for girls or just for specific activities like shooting or driving.

The games are broken down by category so you can find your favourite type on the menu, and players getting high scores have their name and score broadcast on the main page. Users can vote on the games and review them, and low-rated games will be removed. Soon the site will be adding integration to the main social networks and other features in development include high score tracking, awards and achievements. The search facility helps find games easily on this site, and soon this will be extended to cover all the linked sites too. Multiplayer and downloadable games are also on the way, which will make this a comprehensive games site.
