About a year ago I speculated on my German blog that Microsoft would buy Napster within the next twelve months. Obviously I was wrong, because it hasn't happened - at least not yet. Reuters now reports that Napster is losing subscribers and considering a sale as a result:

"We do not have our heads in the sand regarding an M&A (merger and acquisition) transaction. We continue to receive a lot of interest in the company. We will always carefully weigh any valuation alternative against the opportunity and risk associated with continuing as a stand-alone company," Gorog told analysts on a conference call."

Maybe I was just off by six months or so?
