The secret agents of MP3
Downloading music from the Internet, what could be easier ? With the arrival of MP3 – the lightweight audio format which is close to CD quality – the Internet has become an enormous record collection. And the number of MP3 search engines keeps growing too. They are also getting more and more complicated, without being able to guarantee satisfactory results. How many pop-up ads do you have to see before you find what you're looking for? How many broken links do you have to follow before you get your reward? It's a real headache!
Instead of wearing yourself out on hard-to-use sites, ask an intelligent MP3 agent to do the job for you. Whether they are on-line or based on your hard drive, they search not only the Web, by visiting numerous search engines simultaneously, but also file-sharing communities and networks. They sometimes include an FTP module to make it easier to download the MP3 files you find, and can even check for broken links in the search results.
AgentLand presents the MP3 agents, which make it easy to find your favorite music on the Internet without wasting your time. Success guaranteed!
