Thread: iTunes v. Napster

I don't know if this has been discussed yet here at the forums, but Napster has been mentioned in the news a lot lately. And now that they're publicly traded and fully concentrating on music, do you feel they pose a threat to iTunes?
Case in point, they'll be around even whilst losing money. Roxio (former parent co. now trading under NAPS) sold their software operation for $72.3M and has over $130M in the bank... more then enough breathing room to fully impliment their digital music enterprise.

As I understand it Napster is in the music business for the money. Whereas Apple's iTunes is more for selling hardware (i.e. iPod).Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

I prefer iTunes, I've used Napster and I found it so unnecessarily complicated.

I really find it very difficult to believe anything is as easy as itunes... ive helped alot of my pc friends who had a problem because they think its some elaborate thing to convert a song to mp3 or similar. to often they try to make it more difficult and when they see its just one click they are like... oh .. wtf.. thats too easy.
