lala.com shutting down – the fine print

Lala.com is dead. A promising cloud service that is now a cloud cautionary tale. Lots of people have accumulated lots of music with the service and trustingly stored it on the cloud. Now the music collected is likely gone.

Lala has two methods of getting your money back. One that is cleeeaaarly the preferred method and one, in tiny tiny type, alternative method.

1. The iTunes credit: this one is pretty evident in the big type.

2. A check – but act now: The tiny type at the bottom… three clicks in… grey text… “click here” as the link text


see the fine print at the bottom.

The third option is to wait and see if your tunes are available on the ‘other side’, but that is doubtful, since there are no plans mentioned of offering a similar service.
