Battle is on: Microsoft Zune Released
Microsoft's Zune MP3/Video player is released today. This is the big buzz which I hope will last longer than the whole UMPC buzz that lasted about 15 minutes. Apparently, there are concerts throughout the U.S. hosted by MS to celebrate its launch. In addition to video and music, the big push behind the Zune is the "social music sharing" via wireless sync. I have yet to find an evidence showing that Zune can be used for web browsing, yet. For a comparison against the Apple iPod check out zunegroove.com.
