At CES in Las Vegas this week, Bill Gates revealed a little more re the Urge digital music service that Microsoft is collaborating with MTV on. Users will have unlimited downloads for a monthly subscription fee and they’ll be able to choose from 2 million songs, unless you’re using an iPod in which case that number drops to 0. The Urge music service will also be available on the mobile platform and the tracks will be portable from one platform to another.
