What I'm Loving: My ZUNE.. :)

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

ZUNE is a brand of digital music products and services sold by Microsoft. It includes portable media players, client software, and the Zune Marketplace online music and video store. The devices come in three styles, all of which play music and videos, display images, and receive FM radio. They can share files wirelessly with other Zunes and via USB with Xbox 360s, and can sync wirelessly with Windows PCs.

The Zune Software, which runs on Windows XP and Vista, allows users to manage files on the player, rip audio CDs, and buy songs, music videos, and TV shows at the online store.

The first Zune models were released in the United States on November 19, 2006. The Zune 4, 8 and 80 were announced on October 2, 2007.
The second-generation Zune 4 GB, 8 GB, and 80 GB were announced on October 2, 2007. The 4 and 8 GB Zunes are flash-based and smaller in size than the 80 GB version. The 30GB Zune was not redesigned.

Recently, Microsoft has announced that Zunes will eventually be able to play games developed using XNA. Games will feature custom soundtracks and 8-player wireless multiplayer using the built-in Wi-Fi. It will also be possible to develop games that allow for Zune, Xbox, and Windows gamers to compete against each other. An early version of XNA Game Studio 3.0 released on May 7, 2008 allows developers to begin working on Zune games.
