Has anybody purchased one of these yet? I am curious as to how the new Napster's service was, how many songs available, etc. I wouldnt mind getting one, and subscribing, but I wanna make sure its worth my cash and time beforehand.
It appears that this is supposed to be the case. Some people have reported success outputting their files to wav and re-encoding them. I have to imagine this is considered copyright infringement, however.
You can burn tracks purchased at iTunes. Also, there is a new music service from the guy who used to run mp3.com that has indie bands and sells non-DRM encumbered tracks for $.88 each. These are in mp3 format and you can do whatever you want with them.
Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

If you download a song on Napster, it's saved to your hard drive as a WMA or MP3 (your choice).
If you have "music to go" you get your player filled and it works. I haven't discontinued, but I can't understand how they would stop working if you did. I haven't even plugged in the MP3 player for a couple weeks and it still works. But MTG stores nothing on the HD.
Generally, you get the publicity and the fixes from MS well after the potential for damage exists. Occassionally they will be good, but usually they leave alot of room for improvement in their response.
