Hello. Can anyone tell me about Zune? I have heard about it and per Wikipedia:
"Zune is an entertainment platform and portable media player made by Microsoft". It further states, "The Zune entertainment software platform and supporting products designed and marketed by Microsoft include the Zune Software, the video component of Xbox 360, Zune devices, Microsoft Kin Phones, Windows Phone 7 devices, and the Zune website. The Zune Marketplace offers music, TV shows, movies, podcasts, and music videos. The Zune Social is a service integrated with Xbox Live that allows users to manage friends, send messages, and compare music."
Okay, it gives me a basic idea that is like iTunes (which I have never used or know nothing about.)? I need to know how I can use it. I do not have any added hardware accessories except my desktop computer. I am running Windows 7 Pro. Is there any way I can use this with my current situation? What can it do for me *specifically*? It states, "media player"... ...can my Windows Media Player use it in any way?
I am just dumb to this whole "Zune" thing (I'm out of it, period to this form of technology.) and need to know how it works in greater detail. ...and what I have now for hardware, can I use it? Do I need special hardware as Wikipedia states "portable media player"? What kind? What are advantages of Zune and the disadvantages of Zune? Better than iTunes if it is related?
