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.

D'oh! That's 2001 months, not years. Still more than a couple of lifetimes to spend $30,000 at the rate of $15/month.

Wells if you download 30,000 songs you have a problem..... I dont even know if I've ever HEARD 30,000 songs in my life time. ITS CALLED LIMEWIRE, MORPHEUS, BUY THE F'IN CD FOR GOD SAKE!!! Screw Microsoft and their crappy Virus filled PC's. Atleast I dont have to reinstall OS X every 6 months to keep my Computer running fast!!!!!

With 10 songs per month, how long does it take to fill your Zune with music? not to mention $14.95/month means $1.49 per song with an average of 20% increase over iTunes music. This means for the same capacity you will need to spend $36,000 to fill a Zune!!! For me it is what I can keep. Music is about keeping. Again, MS keep twisting the numbers and facts for their own benefit just like they have been twisting people minds in thinking that Windows problems are a figment of their imagination.

Well besides the file sharing apps (ex.limewire/frostwire), I dont think anyone has COMPLETELY filled their iPods with NOTHING BUT MUSIC. I have a 160GB iPod Classic that I LOVE, I have a couple movies (maybe 5-7GB), some songs (about 2GB), and a lot of my TV shows (more than 100GB). But you know what, it's all worth it, plus I dont think the Zune can hold that many GB which is another advantage the iPod has over the Zune.
