Yahoo just announced its own music subscription to go: Yahoo Music Unlimited. Here's the good:

  • $4.99 per month for access to one million songs ($10 cheaper than napster-to-go)
  • Downloads for $0.79
  • Load songs into portable devices (just like napster-to-go)
  • Supports XSPF: XML Shareable Playlist Format

Here's the bad

  • $4.99 is not going to last for long. Expect the price to rise after you are locked in.
  • DRM won't let you get at the bits
  • Can't load subscription downloads onto the iPod
  • Only runs on windows - no Mac, linux or solaris support.
