Napster is the place where outlaws used to hang. Now they are all cleaned up, and will become a legitimate part of Best Buy.
Napster has 700,000 subscribers who now pay to download music. They have about six million songs which, ironically, is the exact capacity of the next generation iPod. You can download or stream your music, and they have some upgrades as well.
Shawn Fanning, the original outlaw file sharing genius, must be flipping out about now.
