A few years back when Yahoo launched its music service, it was pretty clearly designed to fail. Yet, Yahoo kept it going for a while, despite the fact that the executives who ran the program clearly were not fans of the company's own offerings. Thus, it should come as no surprise that Yahoo has simply moved all of its subscribers over to RealNetworks' Rhapsody service, which is having its own problems adjusting to a changing music market place. One could hope that Yahoo's ditching of the music service is a sign that it's actually going to do something more interesting, but given this little merger the company may be involved in, it may be difficult to do very much that's unique or innovative.
