Zune update mid-March

Speaking with the release manager, Cesar Menendez of Zune Insider has learned that a firmware update for the Microsoft audio player is due in mid-March. Three substantial fixes are planned, most notably a remedy to skipping problems encountered with Zune Marketplace files. The v1.3 patch will also improve device detection and synching, and should increase battery life, fixing an FM tuner bug which caused unnecessary power drains while a Zune was in sleep mode. Menendez adds that feature updates may include requests such as podcasting, but it's too early to know if and when they will come.
