    I had a blast from the past this morning when I saw on my FB newsfeed that Napster was back! Who remembers when Napster first came out and you could download music for the first time, it was amazing! 10 mins + on a dial up moden

    Well Napster seems to be back, with an added feature to run it on your phone (sweet). I'll be checking this out for the free trial, will let you know how it goes...Check out more here: Napster Is Back.

    I remember Napster.

    I remember something else of which I have forgotten its name! used to cause a storm over illegal downloads for the masses and now we have Viacom stampeding all over Youtube and Google.

    I remember the days of Napster - and indeed patiently waiting between 10-15 minutes per song. However, today is another day; with Google/iTunes (whichever meets your downloading criteria), there is quite literally no need for Napster.

    Looks like they have come back and copied Spotify's business model.

    Sean Parker's small cut in Facebook obviously isn't enough for him so now he's trying to make money out of nostalgia i.e. bringing Napster back but legally.

    I can see it doing as well as, or even better than Spotify, but it wont be anything major.

    I remember picking up the Napster CD in a phone shop and later using it as a coaster.
