Default Zune Update Coming Soon?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://zunerama.com/forum/index.php?topic=9714.0' target='_blank'>http://zunerama.com/forum/index.php?topic=9714.0</a><br /><br /></div>With the Spring Xbox update just around the corner, it only makes sense that Microsoft's other main E&amp;D device should receive the update treatment as well&mdash;after all, we haven't really had a significant update since the launch of the gen 2 devices. With many rightly feeling that the upgrade to Zune v2 had taken away several desirable features, it appears we might be getting a few of those back. Zunerama member Ricardo Dawkins spotted a video on Zune.net that appears to hint at a few of the upcoming features, including a new genres link in Browse view of the Collection, a videos (!) link in the Marketplace (but strangely no downloads link), and on the artist page in the Marketplace, a new link for &quot;listeners&quot;, likely something relating to further Social integration. <br /><br /><img border="1" alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/500/zt/auto/1209922739.usr495.jpg" /><br />Notice the &quot;videos&quot; link in the marketplace (and removal of downloads link). <br /><br />Details are of course sketchy (and the video has since been pulled), but we'll keep you updated as the update approaches.

Damn, I should have downloaded the video when I first saw it.

But on the listeners thing, I just noticed something similar to that on the artist pages on zune.net. They have a "top listeners" section; found that kinda cool.

Default No Zune news

I hope something comes up because I have noticed that there is hardly any mindshare for Zune. I dont hear about it getting talked or anything at all. Also they have not introduced anything till now which will make people go WOW!. Now they need something like that soon or else the Zune brand is going nowhere.

I just recently purchased a Zune 80 and I'm waiting for it to arrive. I agree that Microsoft seems to know how to let the fruit grow old on the vine.

Between Apple, HTC, and others there's a whirlwind of changes going on. Its time for Microsoft to jump in.

Well, if I were to compare where we're at now to where we were at this time last year, I'd say things have improved by quite a bit. There's a long way to go, but I'm hearing/seeing much more about the Zune than I was a year ago with the first-gen hardware.
