Mercedes–Benz mixtape

Writing about web page http://www.mercedes-benz.com/mixedtape

For a while now, Mercedes-Benz have been making "mixtapes" available for free download. They're a collection of a dozen or so tracks which you can either listen to online at their web site, or download as a ZIP file to play on your own PC or iPod or whatever. The latest volume, number 9, has just been released and it's eclectic and fun – well worth a listen, especially since the download is completely free, completely unencumbered by any sort of dumb DRM and requires no sort of registration or otherwise handing over any personal data to MB.

It's a shame that they don't keep the earlier volumes around once they release the latest one; I only started collecting them at around volume 6 or so, so there's a fair few tracks I've missed. And it turns out that I only actually like about a third of the tracks in each collection. Nevertheless, it's still a cool and slightly unexpected thing for MB to be doing. They even provide a stylish PDF for a CD jewel case cover if that's how you want to use the files.
