Microsoft Has Itself To Blame For MTV's 'Urge' DumpPaul McDougall at Information Week:
It's hardly surprising that MTV has dumped its 'Urge' music partnership with Microsoft and hooked up with RealNetworks and Verizon. What would you do if you got stabbed in the back?I have to say, I agree with this completely. While I understand (sort of) Microsoft's desire to go it alone with Zune, not supporting PlaysForSure in the Zune and then pretending that they intended to support both initiatives going forward was disingenuous to their partners. And let's not forget that Zune was hatched almost immediately after URGE launched. Welcome to the social, MTV.
And then there's Bizarro World, where the opposite is true: MTV Deal With Rhapsody Crushes URGE UsersPermalink ]
