    Looks like Michael Robertson's project for which he hired DVD Jon is making an appearance at http://www.test.mp3tunes.com. I was able to create a "locker", but have yet to download the "Oboe" software that will allow me to use it.

    Sounds like a throwback to the heyday of MP3.COM

    I went and signed up for a free account. Got error message on launching Oboe. Not into playing with it now but looks pretty cool.

    Yeah, on my work box I got a message that Oboe requires iTunes 6 or greater, and that's what's installed. Guess I'll try upgrading to 6.01. The screenshots look really good.

    Oboe is now on the main site http://www.mp3tunes.com.

    After upgrading to iTunes 6.01 on my work box I was able to upload some of my library there. They claim it can take up to one hour per 200 tracks, so it seems like they are really uploading the files verbatim.

    One thing that is already obvious is that it does not understand compilations. my comps are showing up as 11 separate albums.
