Napster Friday Update

by Erica Sadun

Unfortunately, last week Napster changed its download system making it International-unfriendly. So no more International Friday Freebies for the time being.

Just curious but why do you post about Napster stuff to a Mac section of a blg? At least it shows up under Macdevecenter for me. Mainly I ask because the Mac OS X platform isn't supported by Napster..

Good question. Because It wasn't really about Napster. It was about filling up the iPod. And until last week, all the links produced iPod-compatible MP3s that were accessible around the world. Since non-US people are cut off from the iTunes freebies, this was a service for them. US folks can still just go over to the Napster Freebies page each day and download their stuff directly.

You can play the mp3s in itunes, they are (were?) free, and often included very good offerings.

So - you can't access the page at all internationally now? Hmm...
