As a user of both iTunes and Microsoft's music service (formerly called Zune which had a better interface but I digress) I've OFTEN wondered why in the world Microsoft didn't offer their service on iOS and Android. It's a much better alternative for people who listen to a lot of music (and better still for legacy users like myself who get to permanently convert 10 songs/month to DRM-free status for use on any device.)

I always assumed it was because Microsoft was scared of a fight with Apple maybe? Now that Apple is much bigger than Microsoft maybe Microsoft forced their way into the Apple store using anti-monopoly laws? Who knows, I'm just happy I'll have the same service on my iOS and Windows8 devices.
