Napster’s entire schtick is that they claim to offer a cheaper deal than Apple. But it’s an apples-to-oranges comparison, because the iTunes Music Stores sells songs that you keep, and Napster sells subscriptions that you have to keep paying for. Yahoo has introduced their own subscription service, and their prices are less than half of Napster’s. Napster’s response to Yahoo: nothing.
