Best Buy Has Bought Napster

Best Buy, the giant consumer electronics retailer, has acquired Napster, the online music service which most people don’t even known is still around, for 121 million dollars.

Why? I don’t have a clue. The two companies do not seem to be very compatible on the surface (maybe Best Buy could bundle music subscriptions with the media players it sells). Not to mention, Napster hasn’t been “cool” since 2001.
