Subscription services

"There's a reason Apple Computer dominates the legal 99-cents-a-download digital music scene: It does it right," writes USA Today columnist Edward C. Baig. However, Baig admits the is growing on him. "Now, with the addition of RealNetworks Rhapsody To Go service -- and especially with the debut this month of Yahoo Music Unlimited -- I imagine it'll grow on others, too." The article describes some problems with the Microsoft software that underpins both Rhapsody and Yahoo Music. "I had to reinstall Microsoft's software." Overall, Baig picks Yahoo as the best subscription service. Still, he doesn't expect Apple to "slip off the online music throne anytime soon." However, "Yahoo and Real are at least giving digital music fans plenty to think about."
