I love this idea… it’s not enough to get me to switch to Windows, but it is certainly a good sounding deal. I wonder if Janus DRM in Windows Media Player would even be supported on the Mac.
Napster To Go launches Thursday and costs $15 a month. It’s the first digital music service to use Microsoft’s long-anticipated Janus technology, which allows monthly subscribers to take their music with them instead of having to pay for an individual song each time they want something new in their MP3 player.
As long as subscribers keep paying the monthly fee, they can transfer as many songs as they like from Napster’s catalog, which now totals more than 1 million tunes, to a portable device. If Napster users want to burn tracks to CDs, they must pay the standard $1 price tag. [Wired News]
