What do you mean a 2nd look? This is like the 3rd or 4th. I just wish it would die and go away. In this economy who are the dumbasses that are investing in Napster?

I would jump on this if it was more like Rhapsody or Zune. Give us unlimited uploads to any of our MP3 devices(Ipod, Zune, Sansa, etc) for this price and I'd jump on it in a heartbeat.

 As it stands now, $5 to just stream to my computer is not worth it to me.

That's a just plain good deal. I'm signing up right now.

So.. I take it that it's not just a radio station for $5 a month? You can actually dowload DRM FREE songs for less than iTunes? I'm not sure what the excitement is about here. I can listen to Pandora for free and download songs at iTunes, why would this make me switch?

...the $5/month is for the full subscription service, meaning you can stream songs on-demand.  That alone gives it a leg up on Pandora (not that Pandora isn't awesome.

I think the important question, not answered in this article, is how much they charge per-song after the 5 free songs?

If they are $0.99, then it's an awesome deal.  If they're $1.00 or more, I'll stick to iTunes.
