Bill Gates Gets His MTV

Not much information out now, but looks like Bill Gates has reached an agreement with MTV Networks to go up against iTunes with a joint digital music service. Very succinctly called Urge, the service will be out sometime next year and will be integrated into a version of Microsoft's Windows Media Player. Urge is said to include more than 2 million downloadable songs, and of course, downloadable MTV content.
