    Would You Pay $4.95 / Month for Napster?
    By GTaudiophile November 01, 2000, 08:08 AM

    Would you pay or use another program like Napigator?

    Check out this ZDnet article.

    By Grizzly November 01, 2000, 08:12 AM

    Absolutely not. I've only used Napstar once, and honestly didn't find it all that useful. I have ~6GIG of mp3's, and I got them all off of friends / friends of friends FTP servers. You can almost always get faster downloads from FTP servers out there than the overpopulated Napstar.

    By Sol November 01, 2000, 08:55 AM

    no way. I usually buy my CD's anyways.

    Uh, why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free, I always say. Well, I don't always say that, but its true.

    By BloodRed November 02, 2000, 12:14 AM

    There are other utilities out there that can do the same thing as Napster, and for free. BUT, if you think about it, and if you have a burner, paying $5 a month to be able to download just about any song you want is a lot more practical than paying $15 per CD. The only catch is that there will probably be a lot less people on Napster to share files. After all is said and done, I'd say no.

    By Phoenix November 02, 2000, 03:27 AM

    I wouldn't, you could always get MP3's off of other similiar servies(i.e. Scour Exchange).

    By Sol November 02, 2000, 07:43 AM

    My question is, will there be some sort of limit on what artists you can trade MP3s with. Is it just going to be a certain group of artists, or wil it stay the same as it is where you can just about get any artist you want.

    By durilium November 02, 2000, 01:29 PM

    I see no reason to pay for napster.. It is just a meating place to trade mp'3 there is way to be sure you are going to find what you want there, so your paying for a guess.

    The thing that I loved Napster for was that it was free. I used it so that I could check out songs on a CD that I was thinking about getting before I bought it. I won't buy a CD unless I am sure that I would like the vast majority of songs that are on it. I won't buy a CD simply because I heard one song on the radio. Most CD's suck overall, which is why I don't buy 'em.

    If I have to pay for Napster, I would be as well off as in buying CD's and not like them.

    By LordVampyre November 02, 2000, 02:39 PM

    as soon as they lock it up there will be hacks and cracks to get around it.. Thats always the case. So, why do they bother??

    Just use Scour Exchange, very similar to napster, but you can get videos(full length movies, Simpsons epsidoes ) and it's free.

    I guess that a simple search would be able to pop this up? (As in place to get it)

    Why pay for something you can get for free?

    By Pinky November 02, 2000, 10:25 PM

    Uhh....highly unlikely

    www.scour.com

    By gaffo November 03, 2000, 12:42 AM

    I found napster around 3-times slower than ftp, and half as fast as usenet. Hell i found more on usenet groups than napster anyway!. I prefer scour - havent used in 4-months - may be gone today!.
