The Zune Software is the stuff legend. In its first iteration it was an epic disaster, a horrible blend of most of Windows Media Player’s core functionality and absolutely none of the current software’s pizzazz. Starting in Zune 2 Microsoft did however bring the A-game and managed to create one of the best damn interfaces available on Windows to date. However in doing so I fear that may have created a problem none of us anticipated.
It’s been a month since I’ve found it necessary to do sit-down Sunday, and mostly it’s not because there weren’t any big issues, but mostly because I haven’t been on my game. Nevertheless it’s time to put the running shoes on and get back in the race, so hit the grown running I shall.
A brilliant person once said, “The music you love is the music that makes you”. Of course he was my uncle, who I’m not entirely sure is sane but roll with me here. In essence the music you listen to the soundtrack that defines what your lifestyle is. Here’s what a few of your picks for your personal soundtracks.
I don’t know about you but the first thing I do in the morning, is grab my Zune dock remote, and groove to some of the latest music while I brush my teeth and eat breakfast. Some mornings I’ll even send out what I’m listening to via Twitter and Facebook for friends and followers to check out. Funny thing is before I do that, every morning I start with a few words that almost everyone who listens to pop have heard over and over again. “Wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy…”
It’s been rough around here at ZuneSpring HQ. It’s sunny and nice outside, the Halo Reach beta just launched, and this week’s “On The Media”, features a story about the massive pile of unprofessionalism that is Gizmodo.com. You would think we wouldn’t have any spare time to “get jiggy” with, but you kind sirs, are mistaken. Shouts to @Elektrolik and @Dilpickle1!
Just over a month ago, my cable company and I broke up, and while it’s important to the overall point of this series, I won’t bother repeating it all …
With only the summer to go and the excitement for WindowsPhone with Zune integration (or as I like to call it, Zune Phone) building I started thinking this afternoon about what an actual Zune branded experience is and why we should be excited for it.
