Neil Young’s New Music Service

Neil Young discussed the new Pono music service and device on David Letterman last night.

This service, which is scheduled to launch next year, will offer higher quality recordings and high resolution conversions from analogue recordings.

The Pono device will also play the current music formats and though Warner Music Group is the only label to have signed onto the project at this time, many other labels have shown some interest.

Neil Young’s memoirs, entitled “Waging Heavy Peace”, is available from Amazon.ca and Indigo. And Neil Young & Crazy Horse are currently on tour in Canada.

Google has announced that they will be updating their search algorithms, prioritizing legitimate sources for film and music over sites that have received remove notices.

This will enable people to find sources and avoid some of the less secure sites, some of which have viruses and malware.
