Zune updates coming next week According to an email sent out to users of the Zune media player, Microsoft is preparing to launch its upgrade to the desktop software as well as the device on November 13th.
The updates will be delivered automatically beginning on that day and will add wireless sync, a new Zune Marketplace, and a social network built around the device.

"By accepting the updates, your Zune will have the same software that comes preloaded on all new devices,"
Microsoft said.

Microsoft is pushing the updates in an effort to keep early adopters current with the new features available to newer Zune users.

An excellent example of how MS can treat their customers fairly IMO.

Its nice to see huge companies like this finally taking some notice and doing things in consumers interests.

Most the time they just seem like they are in it for the money and you get the shaft almost everytime something new comes out.

Yes, you'll have all the functionality of the new Zunes. (except of course the touch sensitive pad)
And, there are new 30GB Zunes selling for $88 on Amazon right now! That's an awesome deal for anyone looking for an inexpensive PMP.
