  1. You remember Kazaa, don’t you? The malware riddled P2P file sharing service of yesteryear?

In accordance with that agreement, Kazaa’s owner, Sharman Networks vowed to convert the program to a legal music download service.

  2. I give it about a year. When it comes to subscription-based music services, you have to make the pricing competitive. And I don't think picture sharing offsets the higher costs. Most people already have many other ways of sharing those.

    Agreed there... It's just more of the same thing you can get many other places, at a higher price... Why would anyone even bother?

    Thanks, but no thanks (interesting to hear the name Kazaa again though - thought it was long dead). Pricing is too high for the service.
