Last.fm and CBS

CBS Adds On-Demand Music To Last.fm

 

First, I’m rather embarrassed that I didn’t know that CBS had acquired last.fm. This is a nice leap for them. Though Forbes only mentions Napster, Real and Yahoo as competitors, this is really helpful against groups like Pandora. Streaming music is becoming an interesting intersection of commerce and netizens.

 

A second point with this, Forbes.com seems to have figured out the web. First, they have dropped their annoying intro videos (I passionately hated them). Secondly, they’ve added solid social elements, such as comments, Digg, Facebook, and del.icio.us tags. Forbes might be leading the way for grown-up social media on the web.
