CD Freaks reports that AudioGalaxy is back with a subscription service. However it's just the name that is back -- the AudiogGlaxy Rhapsody service itself is the same as's Rhapsody. It is a streaming service with no option to save the files on hard disk.

Oh my God, Marge, quick - grab the credit card and LET'S JOIN !!!! It looks like bloatware to me if I read the description page correctly. There are *way* too many built-in "features" that have absolutely nothing to do with streaming music as far as I can see. (collectively, called the 'communication services'). If I want to 'communicate', I'll send an email, join IRC, or use a forum. Whatever happened to the adage, "KISS"? <K>eep <I>t <S>imple <S>tupid. The agreement page alone contains enough legal weasel-speak to make me cringe. Also, I see no mention whatsoever of *who* ANY of the artists in question *are* or what the album titles might be. And I have no intention of downloading the bloatware just to find out. (Has anyone been, ah....."curious" enough to sign up?) If I could somehow tie-in Streambox vcr to this bloatware, I *might* be interested in ...... (Nah!) -- Mike --
