2 million songs for $15 a month
April 21, 2007
I know that Apple will copy that. So will Microsoft and Creative Labs and virtually everybody in the business of mp3 players. In case you haven´t read it yet, NYT reported a few days ago the new Sansa. A cool mp3 player that comes with an antenna to suck all the songs you want from Yahoo radio stations via wi-fi. Isn´t that awsome? And more: you can view your photos stored on Yahoo Flickr.
The only twist is that you cannot keep the songs if you stop paying your monthly fee. Also there are problems of accessing the songs: there is no built in search and the only option the user has is to browse via Yahoo menus that do not offer a lot of stuff. Too bad. But it still something very innovative and I bet there will be a lot of people looking forward to it.
