Remember when you played four songs on a juke box for a buck? The selection was somewhat limited and you had to have a lot of quarters. Now with Rhapsody, you can play 4 million in your living room for $12.95/month For you youngsters who don't remember juke boxes, think of it as music on demand. Music on demand is what differentiates Rhapsody from XM radio and other steaming services (also if you want to listen in your car, Tivo/Rhapsody isn't your choice). A fixed monthly price is what makes Rhapsody different than Itunes. Some might compare Rhapsody to a home cd juke box with 400 or so slots. I would guess that 400 cds would cost upwards of $4000 plus at least a couple hundred dollars for the player. At one time, I had 1000 cds and three players. Being an early adapter, the first player that had 100 slots set me back almost $1000 for the player. Later, I ripped all the cds to my computer. An improvement, but it still cost at least $10.00 for each new cd. Then I subscribed to Rhapsody and gave the cd players to Goodwill. The cds are still stored in my closet. As I remember, for $14.99/month, you can download your picks to a portable mp3 player (but have to continue to pay$14.99/month to play them). Of course the mp3 player can work with your car radio, making it a better competitor to XM radio. If you can't afford 13 or 15 bucks a month, don't like music, or don't care to pick your own tracks, Rhapsody probably isn't for you. For everyone else, try the Tivo/Rhapsody implementation. It has a few bugs which I'm confident will get worked out. For some things, selection may be easier to set up from your pc, but playing is cool from the Tivo.
