Better than dogfood: Microsofties get Social.FM

Social.FM and Microsoft announced an interesting deal.

All Microsoft employees worldwide can have free lifetime subscriptions to use the new version of Social.FM for Windows Mobile devices.

Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Social.FM gives users remote access to their digital music collections and the music libraries of friends and family.

It’s also a showcase application for Windows Mobile devices, since it turns them into powerful music players capable of playing your entire music collection on the go.

For everyone else, the service will cost $19.95 a year after an introductory period expires in November 2008. (Maybe by then, Social.FM will have merged with iLike and they’ll both be owned by Viacom or Yahoo …)
