Burned Media ( has soft-launched its download site, which allows users to search for, select and purchase music. Content will be available from all four major record labels, as well as indie artists. The company expects to announce plans around a yet-to-be-named music discovery site that will include tools for both unsigned and signed artists to promote their music and live performances.

Users will have access to key features including a loyalty points program that rewards members for recommending music to their friends, who, in theory, will buy the recommended songs or albums.

Brought to you by the designers of Xbox, Microsoft's Zune ($249) features wireless technology that allows users to share full-length sample tracks of select songs, homemade recordings, playlists or pictures among their Zune devices. The full tracks of these songs can be listened to up to three times over three days, after which the song must be purchased from the Zune Marketplace, which features more than 2 million songs. Consumers can download individual songs or purchase “Zune Pass” subscription plans.

Additionally, Zune comes with an FM radio tuner; if the radio station broadcasts a Radio Broadcast Data Standards (RBDS) signal, then the user can see the name of the currently playing song.

Zune offers 30 GB of storage space, meaning it can hold about 7,500 songs, 25,000 pictures or 100 hours of video.
