Things have been so crazy lately that I completely forgot to blog about the launch of HMV’s new download store last month.

Based on ASP.NET 2.0 and using the new ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions, the Microsoft AJAX Library and the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit (all formally known by the codename ‘Atlas’) to add an air of responsiveness and user interaction that has become a staple of Web 2.0 portals. 

Presented to the user through new releases, 15 genre pages, Top 40 albums & singles and the HMV Top 100 along with a whole load of playlists and of course search, songs from the huge 2 million track catalogue can be sampled, purchased and downloaded using the player, basket and download manager respectively.

You can also subscribe to an RSS feeds for each of the genre’s a feed of HMV’s current favourite tracks.

So get browsing and buying!
