...BUT OF COURSE, IF THERE'S FREE STUFF ON OFFER: Lots of Europeans happy to pay just over a tenner a month for unlimited music downloads, says a new report. What's interesting, though, is that the ability to download is judged to be three times more popular than being able to access streamed music.

In other music download news, T Mobile have announced a new scheme which will let customers download songs direct onto their telephone. But only about ninety seconds of each track. Yes, that's going to pull the punters in - we can see T-Mobile customers wandering about, bemused, as to what exactly the Manics believe their children will do if they tolerate this, or desperately trying to find someone who knows: an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot what was she wearing? Thomas Gewecke, from Sony, T-Mobile's partner in the scheme, says that this is taking "mobile music entertainment to the next level" - although, frankly, we can't think of any other mobile music format in existence which tries to make a virtue of only offering bits of the songs.
