Without revealing specifics, Stephenson described possible scenarios that are being discussed, such as enabling Zune users to download music over Wi-Fi in public hot spots or to sync with their PC-based music collections while at home.&quot;</em><br /><br />This information comes from Zune's marketing director Chris Stephenson in a <a href="http://computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&amp;articleId=9018261&amp;intsrc=hm_list">Computerworld article</a> yesterday. He just adds some fuel to the fire of the possible upcoming announcements. If you remember, we reported <a href="http://zunethoughts.com/news/show/860/new-zune-features-announced-on-may-1st.html">last week</a> that there supposed to be an announcement today regarding the Zune. I suppose we <em>could</em> just wait a few hours to find out what they'll actually say but that's not any fun. <br /><br />With all of the anticipation for the possible announcements, Microsoft really does need to have some good stuff soon or I think there will be a lot of disappointed people out there. Since a lot of this comes from confirmed official sources I feel very comfortable about what we'll see.

Thanks for the info David....
While I would really like to see new features for the Zune, I am a pretty happy camper right now!
I have had my Zune since Feb, and I will admit at first it was a bit of a struggle. I can do things on the computer, NO not really, if it wasnt for my wife I would still only have the pre-loaded stuff on it.:confused:
Since Feb though I have downloaded tunes, videos, pics all by my self.:D
I have used the WiFi feature some, with folks at work, but for me thats not a really big thing.
What I would like is some video support on MarketPlace.
I dont have a problem with the Zune at all, its a great device and I keep finding new things I can do with it every day, but it kinda ticks me off that I had to go "off site" and spend more $$'s to find a way to get video to my Zune.
Ok, I am now stepping off my box.....
