    Last.FM has introduced a free full-track music streaming service, designed to help music lovers identify new sounds they like.

    Last.FM boasts 20 million users worldwide. The launch of the new service is a unique proposition because no other service - including Napster - has ever legitimately offered such an extensive catalogue of music for free playback. The added benefit is that users can select what track (or tracks) they want to listen to.

    The company has reached deals with all four majors and thousands of indie labels in order to launch its service. Last.FM's move prompted one music industry insider to say: "I bet Napster just wants to go home."

    Very interesting. No threat to iTunes (in fact it links to iTunes, but Napster must be brickin' it.
