It was no real secret that Yahoo! Music Unlimited had its intentions to raise the price from their bargain-basement low of $4.99/6.99 annual/monthly PlaysForSure subscription music rates—and surely enough they have. Now if you'd like the pleasure of downloading music from them you'll now have to pony up $9.99/11.99, though users who don't have a portable music player will able to keep their $6.99 pinned so long as they don't need to move their music to a portable. Even after the price cut YMU is still the least expensive major subscription music service we know of, so don't get too freaked about the hike, ok?
