iTunes or Spiral Frog - you decide ?

Could this be a new rival to iTunes? Well, I doubt it as we know very little about what Spiral Frog will have to offer by way of artists, compatibility and terms of services, but it certainly looks interesting.

The idea behind the site, which is due to launch in December 2006, is that tracks will be free, with everything funded by advertising.

From their website: "New York, August 29, 2006; SpiralFrog, the new music download destination, has signed an agreement with Universal Music Group (UMG), the world's leading music company, to make UMG's extensive catalog available for legal downloading in the US and Canada via SpiralFrog's advertising-supported service.SpiralFrog will offer users of its no-cost web-based service the ability to legally download music by many of the world's most popular and award-winning artists."

All sounds very interesting, to keep up-to-date on developments head over the Spiral Frog's website.
