Microsoft's Grinchy Heart Grows Three Sizes, Gives Away Another 100 Free Digital Music Albums

Microsoft has definitely been in the giving spirit for the month of December. The company enticed consumers during its “12 Days of Deals” promotion, most recently offering the $329 ASUS Transformer Book Signature Edition for just $249.

But Microsoft is taking things a step further with its second round of 100 free albums courtesy of the Music Deals app, which means the promotion is limited to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 users.
