Couple of months back, MingleBox announced the launch of it’s music service (with a tagline “Connecting people and music“), which enabled users to create/share playlist with their friends, scrap a song as well as listen to music while browsing the site. The service was shutdown before the mega launch and any PR.

Reason?

MingleBox sourced it’s music from SoundBuzz, which was later acquired by Motorola. Though the reason for MingeBox’s music service shutdown is not known, I believe that the SoundBuzz agreement doesn’t allow one to create/share playlists?

Maybe, I am just shooting in the dark. Anybody knows about this? Please share.

PS: I couldn’t find a mention of MB’s music service on the site (and elsewhere), so went to waybackmachine and got the screenshots. Click on the pic to see the archived page.
