Microsoft’s Apple store killer?

I've noticed Microsoft are working on a all you can listen type system for there next online music store. When I first read it I was thinking, humm not really interested. Till I read this and thought this would be great as a digital dj… and hey who really wants to own tons of tunes?

Online-music insiders have debated for years about whether future services will ultimately resemble a traditional CD store–requiring consumers to purchase each single song–or a new model in which subscribers pay a monthly fee for unlimited access to all available music, without the right to keep the music after they stop subscribing.
