The headline for this Forbes article should really be RealNetworks Retools Same Old Song, but anyway:
While Rhapsody is still mostly a subscription site, where users pay a monthly fee ranging from $4.95 to $9.95 a month plus 79 cents per song to burn songs to CD, Glaser says he expects it to try the so-called "à la carte" model, which is similar to Apple's approach, very soon.
"We haven't even unfurled our most competitive weapons yet," he says [RealNetworks' CEO Rob Glaser]. "We plan to get very aggressively into the à la carte model. It's going to be a world where there are a bunch of different models. There are going to be a lot of ways for people to do this stuff."
Three words: Bring it on.
