Privacy alert! ;-)</span><br /><br />And the videos just keep flowing. Duncan Mackenzie from <a href="http://www.on10.net/" target="_blank">on10.net</a>, and his buddy, Brian Johnson, got their hands on two pre-production Zunes and decided to put Microsoft's 3 plays / 3 days sharing to the test. Everything seems quite fluid, though don't expect it to work all that great outside of the US, where come November 14, the Zune will be almost non-existent. Duncan's video is five-and-a-half minutes long. If you don't have time to watch it, check out some of our screen grabs after the break.<br /><br /><div style="page-break-after: always;"><span style="display: none;"> </span></div><br /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/wey-20061004-zuneshare02.jpg" alt="" /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">Figure 2: The spinning circle of eight.
