    Speaking of Zune... anyone know if some kind of successor device will come out any time soon? All of the coverage has been on the phones/tablets and new not-really-a-desktop environment. Surely a Zune-like niche not only exists in the MS line-up (in the same way that the iPod touch coexists with the iPhone and the iPad) but is also far more logical a fit than the original Zune ever was. Again, MS could make a flagship device, then leave the rest to 3rd party manufacturers.

    Yes I know that a phone or tablet could play .mp3s etc. but sometimes I want more portability than a 10" tablet and the ability to not run my phone battery down when I may need it later.

    Hmm, I can't help thinking that there's a missed opportunity here - rather than merely do it as a Spotify competitor, why not also offer it as an add-on for existing XBL subscribers?

    We've got a Family subscription here (4 users) so if, for example, we could "music enable" that for a fiver a month (paid in advance of course) then I'd be very interested.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Interesting, especially if they don't ram FB down your throat - which is what caused me to cancel my Spotify. I think they need a £5/month option like spotify has where you can stream an unlimited amount without ads. And perferably a pay upfront for a set time option. I hate setting up DDs because companies abuse it by making cancelling hell on earth.
