I rather like that at any time, I *can* listen to any one of my
songs, and don't have to keep paying for the privilege of doing so.
So when you consider that I'm likely to keep moving my music on with
me to new computers and such, and it will be listenable for, say, 60
years until I die...and that I'll need internet access to be able to
listen to it... so we have cost for internet service (we'll call it
just $20/month, even though it'll be a while before broadband is that
cheap here), plus another round $7 for yahoo's music service. don't
forget the few hundred bucks i'll need to spend every couple years to
keep an up-to-date windows PC to listen to the streams on, and that I
can't listen to them in my car, on my iPod, in my cd player...
and its not worth it.

- Wait a minute, Doc. Ah... Are you telling me you built a time
machine... out of a DeLorean?
- The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car,
why not do it with some style?
