In the US, MSN is attempting something most contortionists would do well to avoid which is try and please two masters at once. Whilst dropping its own downlaods service, MSN, as contractually obliged to, it will be ‘aggressively’ directing people to RealNetworks Rhapsody digital music service with its separate world of combined digital audio player and service. And yet, at the same time, MSN will also be directing folks to the shiny new and (zzzzzz) very exciting Zune and its, err, world of combined digital audio player and service.

Good to see that in order to further develop the digital music space, MSN is adopting a policy of confusion before completion. I bet Apple is giggling like a schoolgirl.
