    If you have a PC, you can check out the new Yahoo music service at

    It'll be interesting to see if this pushes Apple towards offering a subscription service. At the cost of 5 tracks ($4.99) per month, you get access to the entire catalog.

    Sounds like a bargain to me... but then again, I like the idea of a subscription service. I know that many here don't. Maybe if Steve Jobs gives his blessing to music subscriptions, y'all will come around ;)

    interesting, i wonder if this will pressure Apple and iTunes into a subscription service, i might be willing to try it for a few months or so, might be good depending on the price.

    Cool but no thanks.

    When I pay for something, I want to own it.. I am odd like that.

    i agree as well, but i think it might be nice to use it for a month or so off and on so i could explore some new bands before i purchase their stuff, that way i could get a feel for them first, legaly and more than a 30 second preview too

    this is probably the only way i would use a subsription plan

    That is a great point,

    I didn't think of it like that. I guess I have always used internet radio for that purpose, but the fact that you can actually select the song with Yahooo or Napster, is a good value.

    I may consider it, as long as there is no contract that states you need to stay signed up for over a month or so.
