Yahoo! Disrupts Online Music with Y! Music Unlimited

Yahoo! has launched a beta of its online music site, Y! Music Unlimited. Subscriptions start at $4.99 per month under the yearly plan ($59.88)... substantially less expensive than other music subscription services. Members have access to 1 million songs, and can download songs to PlaysForSure-compatible devices; songs will remain available on the device so long as the owner's subscription is valid. Burnable downloads are available for 79 cents each.
