Update on the Microsoft iPod-Killer

Thanks to our friends over at Gizmodo, we have some new details on the rumored Microsoft iPod-killer. First, the Wi-Fi capabilities of the device won't be limted to just downloading new songs on the go; the "mPod" will allso allow you share songs with other listeners, allowing you to sample the music immediately and then buy it when you get home. Also, the Wi-Fi connectivity will be used to send ads to your device automatically, adding a 10% off coupon as a bonus for watching that ad. The other bit of news is that, should you have a sizable iTunes collection built up already, Microsoft's service will scan this collection and give you the music for use with your "mPod" for free, giving users a huge incentive to jump ship as they wouldn't need to pay for music twice.
