Microsoft Zune hardware and software.

Time to Drop the Zune Pass?
Amazon has Sony on board and with that the fourth and final major player has finally gone to MP3. Which leaves me with a decision to make. Now that I don't need to buy DRM music and I don't need to buy entire CDs just to get 1 song, should I drop my Zune Pass and just start spending the money to build my collection? I only have about 150 songs in my entire Zune library that I have marked as "I Like It". So, in a little over a year I would be caught up. And that doesn't include the music I have on ......

$79 Zune is Here
Woot just keeps pushing the floor price.  Today they are $79 refurbished.  And only in brown, but that's still better than white.

Join the Mayor's Welfare Zune Fund today!

So how do we turn that steaming pile of brown Zunes into a steaming pile of cash? How do we make America fall in love with brown?

Zune 2 Details
I'm not going to rehash all the details, but the Zune 2 is on the way and all features are being backported to the first generation models. THANK YOU MICROSOFT! Personally my favorite features announced so far are podcast support and native support for h.264 and mpeg4 which is basically every podcast on the planet. (With the exception of you few losers using solely Quicktime MOV format.) I haven't seen any details on the user interface changes or the software changes. Hopefully video will be on equal ......

Push Content Coming to Zune?
The Zune rumors and speculation is starting up again. Ars Technica has discovered a patent filed by Microsoft that will push content directly to your Zune based on your personal preferences and playlists. This sort of reminds me of the Tivo Suggestions feature. The patent also discusses the ability to subscribe to other peoples playlists. That would make it much easier for my wife and I to decide which Zune to use. Right now she has a playlist setup on my Zune so she doesn't have to listen to "all ......

Zune on Woot! Again
This time it's only $129.  But only in white again.  I guess they didn't sell out last time.  This isn't looking good for Zune.  I hope Microsoft comes up with something good for the next version.

Zune 2 - October 16th Launch
ZuneScene says it's confirmed, but I would still put it at the rumor stage until there is an official announcement. There is a photo of the actual devices, with not much of a change. Just some flash versions and a larger hard drive. Also a cliam that the video display is awesome. No details about software changes yet. Details and pictures here: ......

Apple, Apple, Apple, Apple, Apple, Apple, Apple
My RSS reader is filled with tons of Apple news which could easily be summed up. Ringtone robbery, more Shuffles, fat Nano, still just an iPod, iPhone - phone - storage space, FU early adopters, and iTunes everywhere. Oh yeah, and Zune, I'm still over here ......
