Zune to offer more bundled media

updated 10:15 am EDT, Mon August 21, 2006

Zune, more bundled media

A new report suggests that Microsoft's Zune digital media player -- announced earlier this month -- will offer a wider variety of pre-bundled media than previously anticipated, according to Electronista. Cesar Menendez, a Microsoft employee who works on the Zune project, stated in a new blog entry that there will be far reaching content included with Zune from multiple Music labels including both audio and video content. Previously, analysts saw this move as a way for new Zune users to test out the power of their new players, but now believe that Microsoft is attempting to one-up Apple with value added features. Zune is expected to launch before the end of this calendar year to boost holiday sales.

    I dunno...

    It sounds good on the surface, but beyond that my reaction is "What, are they releasing the Zune under Dell's brand? The last thing I want is a bunch of bundled c*** that I won't listen to."

    MS is doing this

    so that if there are some "bugs" in the initial release and users can't figure out how to connect their Zune to their PC and transfer songs, at least they will have some "pre-loaded" songs to listen to.

    See, Microsoft does care about its customers...
