Zune Updates Coming November 13
Microsoft is preparing users of its Zune music player for the much-hyped upgrade to both the Zune device and desktop software. According to an e-mail sent out to users on Monday night, the updates will begin to be delivered automatically starting November 13. Among the new features that come as part of the update are: 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 says in the e-mail. As first reported by BetaNews in early October, Microsoft is pushing the update as an effort to keep its early adopters current with the latest features to be provided to Zune customers.
