Napster launches $0.99 MP3 online store, there is a crapload of news

In Internet, Uncategorized on May 20, 2008 at 7:16 pm

Well, today has been a busy day in news, first the new iriver launches from Creative Labs. Then the Megan Meier incident, then the text-messaging lawsuit, and now Napster is launching their own online ninety-nine cent store. It is equivalent to Apple’s iTunes, only there’s nothing to download, and …*drumroll*…no DRM! Yes, finally, all songs $0.99, without Apple’s DRM crap. Everything is in MP3 format and you are free to do with it as you please. I’m making the switch, are you?

Apple reaches $154 billion, Ubuntu to become the most popular Linux distribution?

Well, well, it’s Apple’s time of year, because they just reached $154 billion! That’s one monster sized company, they are worth more than Google Corp. and Yahoo! Inc (Well we all knew the latter). Their enormous size comes from the stunning success of their iPods, iTunes, and the growing popularity of Mac’s and OSX. As for Ubuntu. Ubuntu has been one of the fastest growing Linux distributions out there, why? Because it is easy to use, and a WIndows user can adapt quite easily to it. It also has the capabilities of Linux with the simplicity and functionality of a Windows machine. This combination of abilities has easily driven Ubuntu to one of the top Linux distributions in terms of use. All I can say is, “Go Ubuntu!”. That is all.
