View Full Version : Yahoo raises music subscription costs

Actual quotes from the Engadget site of comments about the Yahoo price increase. Can you spot the common thread?

"I agree the software itself seems a bit buggy at time and is slow and a bit ugly, but it's still a wonderful value in my opinion, for all the new music I've discovered."

"Anyone who has actually tried this service knows how buggy and pathetic the engine is. Yes, I said pathetic. While the selection may be good and the price is good. What’s the point if the program you have to use feels like it never left alpha stages? "

"I've been using Yahoo for a couple of months. The application itself is the crappiest thing ever (script errors, random crashes, features suddenly stop working). But the concept is great"

"I'm a member of YMU, and as others have said, it's a boon for discovering and experimenting with new music, and the price and quality is best-in-class, even with the price increase (which we all knew was coming anyway.) Annual subscribers like me will see no price increase for a year anyway, and after that, it's less than a Benjamin a year."

Lifetime windows users who are comfortable with mediocrity.;)
