    I'll be sure to try this. :3

    If I recall correctly, $30 a year(?). So it's pretty great.

    I'm more or less excited for the iCloud release... I want my pirated/purchased songs synchronized over the air, goddammit!

    Okay. $5 dollars off. Still. Makes it even most likely for me to purchase.. XD

    But I refuse to install the beta iOS 5. Even though I can. So I'll wait for it to go live~

    Like if Apple has a server crash and all of a sudden nobody has any music at all because they rely on someone else keeping it for then [​IMG]

    interesting, but so far I'll stick with Spotify Premium. A lot easier to manage and I don't need to have the tracks to begin with (somehow downloading music via the internet is a lot more troublesome than paying a few $ a month for something that does it without the problem of being sued by some weird association (that doesn't have the right to do it in the first place for most cases).

    Finally a service I can give Apple credit for. I'm too lazy to find and redownload all my tracks in better quality. I may use this once every few years to get my music library repaired.

    Well, it's 25 bucks. [​IMG] I'm a cheapass.

    I keep my library on an HDD.
    This is great, but still man, 25 bucks, I might get it, can I pay with iTunes Gift cards?

    Only 25,000 songs? Laaame. I probably won't use this, as I hate most things Apple (Damn you customer support!!) This is what an external HDD and a netbook is for.

    Already see tons of things going wrong. "Sorry guys, you have to have wifi in order to use this service!" or "Sorry, we're experiencing server issues, no music for all of you!" or "Sorry, we suck! No music for anybody!" or if it ends up using mobile network "Sorry, you've used up your monthly bandwidth in 2 days! You're screwed for the rest of the month!"

    so form reading all day today its not a streaming service but it still streams you dont have to have the song on your device however it caches the song onto your phone so it downloads the file but keeps it temporaryly and when you move onto another song since its cache it can be deleted quickly keeping storage to a minimum on your device, so itunes match will let you stream just not what people were expecting to stream
