So I’m just going to take a moment to talk about a great piece of technology that has been consistently underappreciated.
The rumor mill now is that Microsoft may be killing the Zune hardware though the software and brand remain alive and well on other platforms such as the Xbox 360 and Windows Phone 7.
Subscription music is where it’s at and I have been a huge fan of the Zune platform since early on. Paying one flat fee per month, about the price of a CD, and getting unlimited music is really great. I also get to keep 10 DRM free tracks every month, basically dropping the subscription price to $5 a month.
Either way, I love my Zune and the Zune software, and I’d still recommend people buy one if they are in the market for a media player.
