iPod Killer

June 19, 2006

It looks like those plans for our iPod rival arefurther along than anybody thought. Microsoft’s been having licensing talks with the music industry in order to provide songs on their iTunes-killer service. The service will emphasize pay-per-song purchasing, like iTunes, but will still offer a subscription service, like Napster according to a news article on the Reuters site.

People who have seen the device demoed and said the iTunes-competitor was actually better than iTunes. The man previously in charge of Microsoft’s Xbox division, Robbie Bach, is taking the reins of this project apparently. No idea on when the device or the service will be released and we've heard nothing internally yet – -i'll post something as soon as i hear.
