I've used Napster for a couple of years and it's far superior as a source of MP3 files than itunes. For a small $5 monthly fee (well, actually it's now billed 3 months at a time), you get 15 free MP3 downloads and can listen all you want.

I hear this. But I've been able to stump spotify. Grooveshark.com i have yet to stump and its free. I was a paying subscriber for rhapsody since 2008 until if found grooveshark.

I think you might be surprised at what you can get with Rhapsody. They only have one large problem... some of the best artists and tracks aren't available to them.
So, you can download ALMOST unlimited music for playback on a compatible device for a flat monthly fee. BUT you can't download the Beatles or Led Zeppelin. Will Napster improve Rhapsody's access to music rights?
Well, I see they have 28 albums from The Who, but no Beatles and Led Zep can only be purchased, not streamed. And they no longer offer the ability to listen to songs off line (without buying them). The only thing they have really is a few more artists available FOR PURCHASE.
Maybe the acquisition will give them more bargaining muscle with the labels. We'll see.

Don't worry, you didn't miss anything.
