Default Zune v2 Overview Video Footage

In the news world, this is called "B-Roll" footage: it's video footage prepared by the company you're doing the story on - although usually wouldn't have music with it because the journalist filing the story would be doing a voice-over, explaining what the user is seeing. This footage comes straight from Microsoft in MP4 format, but I've also uploaded it to YouTube and converted it to WMV so pretty much everyone should be able to view it in one way or another. I suggest downloading the MP4 version (49 MB) or the WMV version (25 MB) over the YouTube version because YouTube's quality is so low.

The video has a lot of information packed into it: the improved user interface on the Zune, the radically different Zune desktop software, the new Zune Marketplate, and a whole lot more. I've watched it several times now - there's some exciting stuff in here!

One tidbit I noticed in the video - on the Zune 4/8, the earphone jack is on the bottom of the device...

I actually wondered why no one had done it before... think about it:

You stick your player into your jacket pocket after looking at it - it goes in (and back out) screen first. So why not have the jack at the bottom where it can go straight out of the pocket?

Or maybe the hardware layout just favored that

Yeah, it sounds weird at first but I look at my player sitting on my desk next to me. The plug is on the top and my cord has to wrap around it to get to me since I have the player facing me in a way I can read.

I'm trying to think of a way I'd use it that it would be inconvenient and I can't think of any but I can think of several times it would be more convenient.

It depends on how tight of a fit it is - the physical connector is the same type, but it's in a slightly different place on the Zune, because the new Zune is thinner.

Uh...if you don't have the charger yet, just wait to buy the new Zune, then buy a charger that is compatible with it. Don't buy a v1 charger for a v2 Zune.
