Just got an 80 gig Zune today. So WMR has been added to my Mediacasts.
Listen. Think. Rant.
NFL = New England Patriots (AFC) & Minnesota Vikings (NFC)
MLS = New England Revolution (East) & LA Galaxy (West)
The new firmware is pretty cool--I haven't tried the games yet, but I already have some audible.com audiobooks from an old account I had years ago so the addition of audiobooks is kinda cool. The desktop software seems a little more responsive too, at least on my machine.
I had some issues connecting to my wifi network at first but the software has a button in it that copies your connection info to the Zune and now it works great.
The Zune Pass "all you can eat" feature is interesting also, access to everything they have for one price (not sure what the price is exactly though). Like you say, I probably wont use some of the features, but it's pretty cool. Like the upcoming 360 firmware update, it's kinda cool when you own a device for a while and then suddenly a firmware update makes it feel like you "upgraded" for free hehe.
Have you tried the games yet? It automatically loaded Texas Hold Em Poker and another game to my device but I didn't see other choices in marketplace. I brought my Zune to work with me today to try them out later.
Enjoy a 14 day trial. People I've seen with it rave that it is the greatest thing since sliced bread if you are a big time music listener.
Normally it is $14.99 a month though to listen to whatever, whenever...Sounds like a decent deal for the price of one CD.
