A new ad from Microsoft says while an iPod will cost you $30,000 to fill a Zune can be filled much cheaper.

The ad highlights Micosoft's $14.99/month unlimited downloads plan which lets you download as many songs as you like but only own 10 free per month.

You can watch the ad below...

I like to keep my music, thanks. If this ad even catches a persons attention, I'm pretty sure they'll be shocked when they find out how much they can DL, and how they get to keep nothing when their subscription is up.

I never realized iClarified was so full of idiots. The ad is aimed at the majority of people who actually buy their music from iTunes and the like. Well done to those geniuses who point out you can download them illegally. A lot of people would love Apple to add a suscription model to iTunes and there has been persistant rumors they are close to doing so.

Um, someone needs to go take a remedial mathematics class. At 14.99 per month, it would take 2,001 years to spend $30,000. I'd never buy a Zune, I am very happy with my iPhone and iPod products, but it's an effective ad that drives home the point that most "honest" people, who aren't gong to pirate via Limewire or TPB, would be better served financially with some sort of subscription model in iTunes. Especially those who don't already have a large music collection to begin with.
