Default Shot of Zune HD Marketplace Surfaces, Intrigues

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://twitpic.com/9jywm' target='_blank'>http://twitpic.com/9jywm</a><br /><br /></div><p>I know it's a little late by Twitter standards, but this is a Zune site so why not?</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1247546597.usr495.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="500" /></p><p>Engadget's Ross Miller doesn't think this picture is interesting by itself. I would both agree and disagree; the picture itself isn't too interesting, but taken in context it reveals a few key tidbits. For starters, it looks like they're retaining the Twist UI paradigm, which was introduced all the way back in Zune 1.0. It looks like the&nbsp;artist views are going to start imitating the&nbsp;"enhanced now playing" in the&nbsp;Zune software a little more, with band pictures and info popping up when you scroll through music (see a <a href="http://www.zunethoughts.com/news/show/94236/new-zune-hd-pics-video-and-release-info-surfaces.html" target="_blank">better shot here</a>.) Also, it appears that the Marketplace and Collection will begin to look a little more closely related, with dynamically-generated previews of the tracklist shown below the album title and release year (see above.) <a href="http://www.zunethoughts.com/news/show/94236/new-zune-hd-pics-video-and-release-info-surfaces.html" target="_blank">September&nbsp;8</a> can't come soon enough.</p>

I'm REALLY liking the way this is looking - really slick, highly visual. I dig it!
