Napster has unveiled a new subscription music service that is quite possibly the best deal out there.

Paying for access to streaming unlimited music is nothing new; however Napster has taken it to a new level with a $5 deal.

For the new low price listeners not only get unlimited access to streaming music on the site, but five downloads a month. That equates to 60 songs a year for $60.

For anyone who routinely pays for at least five downloads a month the offer is really a no-brainer because in addition to the songs you now have unlimited access to millions of songs.

The two main appeals to this offer are its cheap, and you get downloads every month.

Napster, which got its start as an illegal download site, is all grown up and legitimate as it was bought by Best Buy last year.

The comprehensive site offers new releases, staff picks, playlists, radio stations and extensive search options.

Compared to Rhapsody and iTunes it is the best combination of downloads and streaming songs on the market right now.

Bravo Napster, Bravo.

Get to listening now at Napster.

iPod good as cash

NYC Taxi

A 20-year old California college student touring New York City with a bum credit card was forced to pay her cab fare with an iPod nano, according to MSNBC.

According to reports, Natalie Lenhart took a cab from Manhattan to JFK airport, but when she tried to pay the $59 fare her credit card was rejected. So instead of running, like 95 percent of Americans would do, Lenhart faced officers at the airport who made her hand over her iPod nano, packed full of oldies such as James Taylor, valued at $140.  

What kind of communist cop makes you pay a bill with personal property that is nearly twice as much as the debt? It sounds like some sort of gypsy cab scam that an American tourist would encounter in Eastern Europe.

When James Taylor read the story in the New York Post he was pretty peeved. So upset, in fact, that he decided to send Lehart a new iPod filled with his music.

A New Yorker “Would never have put up with it,” Taylor told the Post.

A true New Yorker would have had a few choice words for the driver and the cops I would imagine.

The cab driver has offered to return the iPod if the fare is paid.
