The Napster mp3 Store Is Now Open for Business


Oh, it’s on. It-is-on. (Well, not really I don’t think.)

Napster, the digital music service, on Tuesday opened the world’s biggest MP3 download store with more than 6 million songs in a direct challenge to Apple Inc’s iTunes store.

The new Web-based music store will have digital songs from all major music labels as well as thousands of independent labels. The MP3-format songs will be compatible with the vast majority of digital media devices and mobile phones including Apple’s popular iPod as well as its iPhone. [Reuters/]

Remember when the Napster name meant something? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
