Microsoft Usually, we do not report on .mp3 players. However, sometimes we cannot go around them. Today is one of those times: Microsoft has launched its supposed iPod killer, the Zune. "Not a lot of surprises in the specs department, but they've confirmed the basics we've known for a while, like WiFi, 30GB of HDD, built-in FM, a 3-inch screen and the basic music, pictures and video playback. They also finally let slip the screen res - an unsurprising QVGA - and some better news on the codec front: the Zune supports h.264, MP3, AAC and WMA."

flag the song for purchase on the Zune Marketplace

interesting ...

I wonder if is it possible to buy it from some place else .. the advertisement doesn't say a word about it ...

Shall it noy be possible .. I wonder how that doesn't fit into the very definition of monopoly ...

oh yeah .. and the fact that "who the hell is MS or any other such to control whether a given individual violates or not somebody else's rights" .. afaik, only a given state has the monopoly on that .. If you can not come up with your own prive police, I wonder what better right than you they have in order to do so ...

questions .. questions .. so many of them ..
