Arrow Sharing and Info. (IMO)

first of all I think a lot of people are underestimating the growth of the Zune population. I've currently deployed and I go to the gym about 5 days a wk. and I see about an average of 5-6 Zune out of 20-30 people, and about 15-25 Ipod users.

No. I dont walk around with my Wifi on. If it wasnt a battery drainer I would. But it also drains batteries on the PSP too.. so there's no getting round that.

No. there's isn't an audible tune that pops up when someone is trying to send something if you're listening to music or viewing a video, but a box does pop up and ask you if you want to recieve from that person. IF someone does have there Wifi on and you have yours, you are able to see what they are doing on their Zune. ie: Watching _______ video or movie, Viewing Pictures or Listening to _____. So that can be a plus or a minus, it depends no how you look at it.

Yes. I've met people with Zune and ask them what they're listening to. And must Zuners are cool and are more then willing to send you a single or the whole album (cuz it take maybe 2-3mins for a 17 track album to transfer). And it takes maybe a few sec.s to turn on the Wifi, except when you're viewing video, cause then the video is stop due to the use of the back button. but music does keep playing. Video and Audio is also stopped when you agree or say "YES" to recieve a file from the individual. Overall I love the feature, YES it can be put to better use and more can come from it. But it make all my iPod friends jealous when I can get an whole album from someone without the use of a computer and iTunes.

So as long as the population of Zune continues to grow and people are not afraid to ask another Zuner(stranger) to share with them, the growth of sharing via Wifi will get more popular than ever. IMO
