Okay, I just got a zune and I really like it. Except the battery life. Are they going to abandon zune 1.0 or will they keep making firmware updates? Is it possible to get music, videos, etc. to use less battery life? My zune only lasts me 4 hours on a full charge on low settings, and its really annoying.

I really havent had any problems with the battery life on my Zune.
If you havent done so yet, I have found it helps to reduce your backlight, turn off the wifi.... Oh, and never turn your Zune on!!!
Just kidding....!
But really if you turn some of the features off that you dont use like wifi and such it should improve your playback time.
One question are you just listening to music, or watching video?
When I am watching video I get about 4 hours max (and thats if the wind is blowing right and I hold my Zune in just the right position)....Havent run down the battery yet on listening to tunes.
