Default Top 10 Tech Ideas of 2006

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/28/technology/28pogue.html?_r=3&ref=technology&oref=slogin&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

"The Zune, Microsoft’s new music player, does something amazingly well that its rival, the iPod, doesn’t do at all: It lets you beam songs or photos wirelessly to another Zune. It’s easy and fast, and it could be a great way to discover new music recommended by your friends."

The New York Times gives us a rundown of the Top 10 technology related ideas of 2006. With all the bad press Zune has received, I was surprised to see Zune's file sharing right there on the list. While the Times does hail the idea as brilliant, it does admit that the execution of the idea is a little lack-luster. I pretty much agree with their assessment; the idea of music beaming is a good one. Unfortunately, between the too restrictive DRM and lack of Zunes to share with, we users are still left wanting. Here's to improving the functionality of this great idea in 2007!
