Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Mp3tag got updated! Mp3tag it's a great software to organize and customize your entire music collection in terms of IDtag. It's easy to use, you can embed album/cover art into mp3 files so that, if you're using an iPod or a mobile phone or any another MP3 player with album art support, you can see the album art for the song you're listening at that moment. I personally consider this very cool. There are also a bunch of cool stuff you can do with this software. It runs on Windows OS only (Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7).
