This story was written by Rafat Ali.
Some digital music related stories, as we draw closer to our EconMusic conference in London on Sept 23rd:
-- A Bigger Zune: Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) is building a 120GB Zune, according to uncovered FCC filings. Still smaller than the biggest 160GB iPod
-- Interactive iTunes Albums: Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) is working with alternative rock band Snow Patrol on an interactive iPhone/iPod Touch application through iTunes that will include more album art, videos, and lyrics, reports MusicWeek. This is ahead of the release of their fifth studio album next month.
-- Amazon's (NSDQ: AMZN) new music data site: Amazon today launched a beta of SoundUnwound, a website that compiles music-related data from IMDB, Amazon, Musicbrainz and user contributions, Wikipedia-style. More details here.
