"As of today, you no longer have to use the Rhapsody application to purchase music from the company, and all of the single song downloads in its store are available as unprotected MP3s. Rhapsody's offering differs from that of Amazon MP3 because prospective buyers can preview full tracks -- up to 25 of them per month -- before deciding whether or not to purchase them on Rhapsody or one of its partner sites. The new service will roll out to Rhapsody's new partners as well, iLike, MTV Networks and Yahoo."
With this move Rhapsody has a lot to offer. Subscription services, check. Non-DRM'd MP3's, check. Useful partners, check. I'll be interested to see how iLike works out as I think a music store integrated into Facebook could do pretty well.
