So Roxio has aquired Shawn fannings creation, "Napster" and the failed Pressplay service. With this Roxio now hopes to legitamize napster and become
a contender in the online music service. But here is the KICK, Roxio (which is populer for Easy creator DVD, CD and the mac version called Toast) will
not allow you to burn anything you download off the service....How can this possibly contend with the Itunes service? Or even Contend with other Peer
to Peer systems like Kazza, limewire, morpheus, imesh, and the list could go on.
Personally, I would like to see the service work, especially since it has the potentional to be the ONLY decent one for windows platform. Also, since
Roxio is using a very good search engine like Napster, it has some possiblities. Plus, Roxio has seen every mistake made by the orginal napster team,
and it can only get better.
Though I don't think it can compete with itunes.
