Hello MSN, this the clue delivery you ordered...

I've only just had this pointed out to me and I have to smack my hand to my forehead publicly and say 'yer what?' - I couldn't believe this was a few days ago and not three years ago.

If I buy these songs on your service - and they're locked to my phone - what happens when I upgrade my phone in six months' time?

Well, I think you know the answer to that.

Can you really expect people to buy music that's locked to a device they upgrade every 12 to 18 months?

I didn't realise phones were churning that quickly in the marketplace these days. I'm sure there are some users who change their phone every year.
