    yeah, this is great! i would like to know where the msn music store is, as well as napster - considering it should have gained huge popularity with its current aggressive ad campaign. i'm also wondering why "Across the Universe" was exclusive to iTMS - wouldn't it have regenerated more proceeds had it been available to all online stores?

    Not with Napster.... and I don't know about the MSN one. I think they're having issues just letting people know about it. I forgot :D
