Dell's Music Service To Come From MusicMatch
from the that-makes-sense dept
Yesterday people were wondering about the non-details surrounding Dell’s announcement that they would be offering their own download music service. Today the rumor is that Dell will be branding a music download service from MusicMatch. This makes sense, of course. Dell and MusicMatch have been partners for many years, and MusicMatch has been working on a download service to compete with iTunes for a while (especially once Apple decided to push MusicMatch aside and offer their own PC iTunes app). Not surprisingly, the service will use Windows Media format (and its associated copy protection). What’s unknown so far is how the selection and pricing will turn out.

Make mine apple.
It has it’s own format and DRM but for all practical (emphasis on practical) purposes you don’t notice it. Same can’t/hasn’t been said about the windows approach to DRM.
