Mine is a Social Ownership Directory of People and Products

“We are trying to do something that's never been pulled off -- to build a platform where it is easy for people to share what they've bought,” says Mine co-founder and CEO Pierre Legrain. “We are about creating a directory of ownership, of people and their recent purchasing history of items they want to share.”

At first glance, this may remind you of the ill-fated startup Blippy, which allowed people to see what their friends were purchasing with credit cards in real-time.

“So it turns out that almost nobody wants people to check out their purchases,” was the memorable way Alexia Tsotsis started off her Blippy obit in TechCrunch in May 2011.

eMusic Sells Out

This just in—eMusic signs a deal with Sony. Sounds like the online music medium known for its extensive indie tunes catalog is going mainstream for the money. Do we really need another iTunes or Napster? Pollstar reports.

 

Macworld Tunes

It's definitely a stereotype, but we're going to go ahead and say it anyways: people who like Macs usually like music (and have pretty good taste). And with Apple's Monday announcement that they're freeing up iTunes from DRM, we imagine that most of these people are pretty stoked. So in the spirit of sharing the music love, we nabbed three Macworld attendees and took a look at what topped their iPod playlists. Check out the ones that passed our bar below.
