CNET has an article on Microsoft’s new iPOD killer that is slated to be released soon. I’m not really interested in the hardware (for this entry), it’s the download approach Microsoft is attempting that I like… for as little as $10 a month, you could download hundreds of thousands of songs, instead of paying $.99 for each song at the iTunes Music Store. I think this model is the best way to combat all the illegal downloads for both audio and video. Make it cheap and accessible enough so it doesn’t make sense download the assets illegally.
