RioPort has unleashed the latest version of its Audio Manager software. Apart from the features users have come to know and love—like the ability to rip MP3s from CDs, organize downloads into playlists and load them into and out of portable players—Version 3 of the application allows digital music fanatics to create custom CDs. But our favorite new feature is the menu of trippy dancing patterns that move to your music. It's real purdy and we like to just stare at it for hours and hours. In a related story, RioPort's Jason Bernard really has to take this call, so he'll have to get back to you… The upcoming Dixie Chicks tour will be sponsored by new Web destination MusicCountry.com.

Among the 24 charges against the man a judge has labeled "the golden-tongued salesman": Bilking elderly parishioners at his father's church. You can see why he gravitated toward the music business… Digital entertainment site EVEO.com allows users to create their own videos—which it has given the excruciatingly cute name "eveos"—on the Net. Rockers Counting Crows, meanwhile, have signed on to be the first act for the site's eveo contest, which will ask users to create their own "music video interpretation" of the band's track "Mr. Potter's Lullaby." Results of the contest will appear at the eveo.com site and on the ARTISTdirect Network. Winners will not be rewarded with stock…
