Sick of being a minnow in a small pond, Napster has launched a web-based version of its digital music service that for the first time allows users to listen to songs without having to download special software. The service works on newer versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox, which means the service can now work on most …
I've been reading this news of the 4.0 update being available "from today" or "available now" for a couple of hours. So far however, the U.K Napster download site is still serving up ver 220.127.116.11.
This may no longer be the case tomorrow morning I suppose, but to be told over and over again in press release and news story that I can get something now and yet not be able to makes me feel like the U.K is getting a little looked over by the people.
Hopefully it's all just a time zone thing and the announcement will spread over to the U.K tomorrow. Here's hoping :-)
MP3s to become the standard?

Not in Canda
We get nothing here, primitive protected backwater that sometimes is.
Every napster site redirects back to the Windows Only napster.ca.
A trip with Firefox on TOR show me the joy unavailable to we of the land of the yellow snow.
Update: Not in UK either
The UK download site still hasn't been updated to version 4.0. I used a proxy server to obtain a copy of the 4.0 software from the U.S site.
The software refused to accept my login information, which I knew was quite likely, but I just wanted to check.
So now I've rolled back to 18.104.22.168 and shall sit quietly and wait for America to realise other countries exist.
