Orb moves into music

Orb Networks has an exclusive deal with Virgin Digital, which claims the 'deepest online catalog of digital music', containing 2m tracks from 15k record companies. Together they will develop the Virgin Digital Connector: access your music anywhere through any web-enabled device.

This looks like an interesting move into music (previous deals centered around video). Place-shifting your music. Furthermore, Orb starts to deliver on its promise of making lots of deals. Back in March it said that it was in talks with 18 parties. Making deals seems to me the best way to monetize the company's assets.
