Search Engines

MP3 (Mpeg Layer 3) is a format for storing audio on a computer. To make an MP3, audio is taken from any source (such as the track from a CD) and compressed down to a track about 8 percent of its original size (a compression ratio of 12:1). This means that, while a regular music CD can contain about one hour of music (74 minutes, actually), a similar CD used to store mp3 files can contain almost 12 hours of music. If you are a music fan looking to connect directly with your favorite artists worldwide try The Ultimate Band List.
