Zune hacked!

Ha! Bet that got your attention! Unless 'DVD Jon' bought one at Best Buy this week, don't count on it. But it'll happen. I just don't think there's a way to stop it. The question is, what will MS do when it happens?

Let's face it, they may like it. They may want it to happen, if ever-so-secretly. It's beyond dumb that you can't buy stuff wirelessly. That would indeed have been an iPod-killing feature. Now the chances are whatever iPod that becomes wireless will allow you to buy via airwaves. Also, if and when Apple puts wireless into an iPod, they will undoubtedly integrate Bonjour, which means your playlists or libraries will automagically be shared with folks in proximity. That's a lot cooler than "sharing" a song or two for a couple of days. Oh, I mean THREE whole days. The Count would be proud.

I'd say early in 2007 we'll start seeing the Zune hacks in great abundance.

One question though-- can you play your Xbox 360-downloaded movies on your Zune?
