    Is it just me, or does the "hip hop" napster banner look like it is flipping us off?

    Not a Napster fan anymore ( I loved the first version :) ), I don't pay for music I can't keep... Period..

    But back on topic..

    Is it just me.. or is the napster ad flipping everyone off?!?

    Not sure which ad your referring to (I know you mentioned Napster, but I don't remember seeing it). Perhaps someone could post a screenshot of it?

    I think that's a steering wheel :)

    (or am I looking at the wrong one?)

    OK I just saw it. No, it is not flipping us off. If you look closley you can see that he is sticking out his middle finger and pointer finger. You can see the pointer finger's nail in the face, which is the same color as the hand, thus it blends in and the finger gets lost giving an illusion that you saw.

    I thought it was more interesting that Best Buy has, for several weeks in a row, shown Napster-related products with an HP computer, instead of an iPod and iTunes.

    Well I noticed the other finger fast. Plus there is a ring on the finger that sorta signifies a finger. But that's just me.

    But yea having an outline on the finger would have had it pop out more as another finger.

    Well I did know the Ring was on a finger, it just looked to me like that finger was bent, with the ring blinging next to an extended middle finger..

    But I stand corrected..

    It is probably a sign of respect for its user community. :)

    LOL.. and we get to thank Metallica for helping them shut down. Old Napster was awesome!! I actually bought MORE CD's after listening to tracks on Napster, then I would have, wihtout the free file shares.

    I sold, and no longer buy Metallica.. I am However happy that the Apple Music store started up because of the awareness of having to buy music you download online..

    I am a happy applestore customer :)

    What *is* up with all these Napster ads? Don't they realize this is a Mac site? Did they forget that their service doesn't WORK on Macs?

    Napster probably doesn't have much say in where the ads are displayed. Blame it on whoever is serving the ads.
