You&rsquo;ll also be able to purchase accessories online from Microsoft partners...Get a whole range of free content like artist interviews, video biographies, podcasts, etc...Get music from independent artists at a cheap price (anywhere from 0 to 50 points)...Access the Zune Marketplace from your Zune, and buy/download content through your Wi-Fi connection...&quot;</em><br /><br /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2007/316311617_1abd901756-jan15.jpg" alt="" /><br /><br />I'm not sure who this mystery blogger is (I can't even find a name on the blog), but he claims to have insight into the future of the Zune over this next year. Most of the things he lists off mirror my own ideas about what's coming for the Zune in 2007 - let's hope it comes to pass!<br /><br /><strong>UPDATE: </strong>Link added (I pasted it in the wrong form field), and as someone pointed out, the blog address as the name of the person: James Kyton.

If his comments on Zune are as "accurate" as his comments on Vista, at least according to some sources (http://brandonlive.com/2006/12/30/drive-by-blogger-posts-fiji-vienna-wishlists/), I'm not sure I'd take much stock in his post.

Thanks for the link, kryptman40k. Yes, I'd have to say that I don't know how much of the post is a compilation of other rumors, some actual information, and some daydreams. We'll just have to wait and see.
