Screw You Steve Jobs! Apple Shuts Down Lala

So earlier today I went to log in to Lala, and a message comes up saying that the site is shutting down on May 31st. If you have any credits or purchased any streaming albums, you'll get a refund in the form of iTunes credits. Of course one song on iTunes costs as much as 10 streaming songs on Lala, but never mind that. Just smile while Uncle Stevie gives it to you good and hard.

I never bothered with the streaming albums precisely because I was afraid something like this would happen, but it still pisses me off that Apple is shutting the site down. Right after they bought out the company, Lala stopped having sales, but they still had better prices than Amazon on most albums, to say nothing of iTunes.
