    So if you were locked in with the subscription, you'd either have to give up your music, or pay the extra fee.

    hahah! I wish i knew someone who was using that service. I would laugh at them very hard.
    A prime example of why subscription services suck.

    Hmm?

    Anyway. It's still cheaper than Apple's subscription service.

    Are you searching for a previous thread? I've looked. It might be one of the MacByte articles.

    Basically, it's a bait and switch. :D

    Haha, my instant reaction was 'Repost!' but when I went back and found previous threads, they linked to different articles... so I thought I'd just let this go. But apparently soooome of you can't let me just back down. :eek:

    I feel like Yahoo is doing a great job advertising the merits of purchased music vs. a subscription model. I mean, I get scared every time Apple updates the iTMS agreement and I have to agree to it to keep using iTunes, but I continue to own the music. It would seriously suck to get priced out of your subscription and lose access to everything..... :(

    Basically like cable television, the evil circle where there only way to show increasing profits is to raise prices -- because their number of users aren't growing fast enough. :p
