Qtrax Missing EMI & Universal Hits

Qtrax Yesterday, I chronicled the trouble I was having downloading and playing tunes from the supposedly relaunched Qtrax site. Others agreed and a quick test showed that the problems continued this morning. Perhaps just a annoying given Qtrax history of not delivering on its promises, is that most hit product by EMI and Universal, two labels who said they were supporting the service, is unavailable and labeled: COMING SOON.
