Yahoo Music

Should you subscribe to Yahoo's new Music Search Engine? At $4.99 for unlimited downloads, why not?

Because if you ever quit paying the monthly fee, your music stops working.

"Under the rental model, consumers must pay a recurring fee and synchronize their portable music players with the subscription service at least once a month to preserve the music. If the subscription expires, the previously downloaded music becomes unplayable."

That would keep ME from doing it, anyway. Can you imagine how much I'd have paid for some of my David Bowie tracks by now if I was "renting" them? :D

There'll be a hack for that, eventually, though, I hope! WMV's and DRM are really wonky, though, I have found. No way would I buy some of my CD's and DVD's again! Once I've bought it, I want to own it forever.

I use WMAs in my MP3 player (did I tell you I finally bought a 5GB player? I LOOOVE it) just because the files are smaller. I wouldn't trade them with people, though, because they have DRM and that crap in them.
