Napster makes a desperate call

The sliding official version of Napster has come up with a novel wheeze - it's partnered with AT&T in the US to offer mobile downloads (although not to the phone company's iPhone customers.) The USP? Erm, charging double the price of its main competitors. Two dollars a download.

And, of course, there's normally a carriage charge on top, too.

Who would be stupid enough to pay $2 for a song they could get elsewhere for half that? Unless they live in the UK and have no choice in the matter, obviously.
