Dene Schonknecht, the company's (Microsoft) media and entertainment alliance manager the earliest date it will be in the UK is towards the end of 2007.

But wait a minute. Isn't teh Zune supposed to work with teh Urge, now they've dumped PFS and WMA-DRM? So they've pissed off the few poor fools who tried to build a WMA based music download site and now they haven't got a replacement can't do it themselves and need to find "partners" to do it for them. Do I detect a bit of channel conflict here?

So then we have the continued lunacy that whoever wants to build a legal music download site needs to build a new one in each market. So this won't just be the UK, but each and every country outside the USA.

iPod Killer. Right.
