WMP 11, Urge, Clix review
CNET.com has reviewed each facet of the new digital music trio that hopes to lure consumers away from Apple's iPod/iTunes ecosystem. Microsoft, MTV, and iRiver recently teamed up to offer an integrated music service to compete with Apple in the digital music market, combining the software giant's Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 with MTV's Urge music service and iRiver's $200 digital media player. All three portions of the new service received "excellent" scores, with iRiver's Clix player also holding the CNET Editors' Choice award., according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
