-- Choruss has signed up "tens of thousands" of students at U.S. universities for the beginning of the next school year, according to a report based on a conversation with Jim Griffin, founder and president of the music clearinghouse that is attempting to usher in a paid-for, unlimited P2P music service. "People have voted with their own money: The student representatives allocated their own money to pay for music," he told The Register. "They don't want to pay for Music the Product, but Music the Service." (The Register)

-- Tales from the music section of a Target in New York City. "What I saw were a lot of depleted shelves (including the new-release area, although that might have been waiting for today's supply of Black Eyed Peas discs), many copies of Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak, and the fully-stocked display of Sony MusicPass cards that has remained pretty much intact since last year's holiday season, save one card for Blake Lewis' Audio Day Dream that was moved into the country section. ... There were also two people in there browsing CDs!" (Idolator)
