Spotify's U.S. Negotiations Stall, Fall Back to 'Square One'
Spotify's been trying to crack the American market for a while now -- so long, in fact, that the saga has even spawned its very own Tumblr, dubbed 'Not-ify.' And, with this latest setback, the negotiations are sure to drag on for even longer. If you're tired of waiting, though, All Things Digital recommends that you check out some alternatives currently available to U.S. users. (Spotify, in some ways, is the granddad of them all, but, because of import issues, each now shines for different reasons.) Rhapsody, MOG, Rdio and Thumbplay are a few of the $10-a-month options, and there's always Best Buy's Napster for those looking to save $5 a month on music. That should be able to tide you over until Spotify finally arrives -- or until the deal falls apart for good. [From: Billboard; via: AllThingsDigital]
Update: Spotify's Jim Butcher told Wired.com that the Billboard discussion of negotiations being "back to square one" are "quite simply not true."
