    I can't see how a streaming service will help the Zune, unless there's some way to perhaps save the generated playlist or particular tracks for a fee so that you can download them to your Zune?

    The zune has wi-fi doesn't it? Streaming to the device through that would be pretty cool - although obviously limited.

    Streaming over Wi-Fi? Sounds great in theory but practically this could be quite tricky. I don't tend to run around my house with headphones on and when I'm outside it's very rare to have a connection for much longer than a couple of minutes. Unless you're sitting at a hotspot like McDonald's, a train station or an airport. But then I can easily listen to my own music and save some battery life.

    This is going to be really limited because not everywhere has wifi. It doesn't sound enticing either...
