That's an interesting point. I wonder what it would take for Zune to recognize SPOT signals. I was under the impression that SPOT/MSN Direct runs on regular FM signals, so it shouldn't be too difficult for Zune to recognize it, right?
It's kind of unfortunate that Microsoft has so much technology at its disposal yet doesn't seem to want to do anything with it. I'd really love to see the Zune as a Vista Sideshow device, or a Media Center Extender, but I imagine these won't happen for a while, if at all.
