Messenger now on Zune HD
My main man andy_faz reminded me yesterday that Messenger is now available for Zune HD. The navigation takes a bit of getting used to and it’s not as full featured as it’s iPhone cousin but nonetheless, good to see it on Zune. The Metro UI looks as delicious as ever, Facebook integration, and social...

Windows Phone 7 is pulling in to the platform
[updated to resolve errors in my original post, thanks for comments] I’ve read a few interesting blogs today that got me thinking about the platform nature of Microsoft’s business and in particular Windows Phone 7. First up was Paul Thurrot’s post titled Windows Phone's Real Secret Weapon: Developers...

Zune HD in device manager
Sweet…I hadn’t noticed that Zune HD now has its own icon in device manager in Windows 7. Maybe it’s always been there but perhaps it was part of the 4.2 update?

Zune HD gets Facebook
I can’t remember a time at Microsoft when I had so much to blog about. It’s keeping me up late at night to keep you abreast of everything (well, not everything ) that is going on. Windows Phone, Natal, Cloud, Surface…..and now Zune HD with a funky new Facebook app. Okay so we’re not in the iPhone apps...

PGR Ferrari Edition on Zune HD
This is how PGR: Ferrari Edition looks on my Zune HD. In fact, it looks a LOT better than that and the gameplay, once you get used to the sensitivity of the accelerometer, is excellent. If you have a Zune HD, it’s a free download from the apps tab within the desktop software. Now looking forward to the...

Zune HD 4.3 firmware released
Though I’m not seeing it yet (must be a staged rollout) the 4.3 firmware for Zune HD has just been released. I’m going to change my region to US to see if that jolts it. UPDATE: I forced the update using the following instructions from charms55 on the Zune forums. 1. Press POWER/MEDIA (side) buttons...

Zune HD. If you can, you must
I’ve held off blogging about my Zune HD for a few weeks so I could get a feel for it and offer a considered opinion. Thankfully for me, my opinion hasn’t changed since I took it out of the box – it’s stunningly good. The hardware is a impressive and much like an iPhone when you first see one, hard to...

Zuneify your Twitter avatar
Not something I personally want to do but as I’m pretty happy with my Zune avatar (Banksy’s Flying Copper) but nice to see the attention to detail from the Zune team

Gordon reminded me that it’s been well over a week since I got my Zune HD and I haven’t posted anything about it. I plan to address that this week but in the meantime, savour this video hat tip to Long Zheng

Zune HD Day
I got the email I wanted from Amazon yesterday to confirm that my Zune HD is en route and should be arriving at my hotel in Seattle any moment now. Wooohooooo…..there goes my day :) I’m quite exccited about this new device, so much so that during a meeting yesterday when one was handed around I resisted...

Stainless Steel Shuffle
For me, the Stainless Steel Shuffle is by far the coolest thing that Apple announced during their event this week. Nano’s with cameras? I’m not feeling it….but a Jonathan Ive classic design, that’s more like it. Still, I wont be buying one as I just pre-ordered my Zune HD with guaranteed delivery on...

Zune HD hands-on
(Credit: Donald Bell/CNET Networks) The Zune HD must be getting close now with such a thorough hands on review from by Donald Bell at C|Net . It sounds like a beautifully engineered device and though it’s different from an iPod Touch that’s what it’ll obviously be compared to. I have a Touch and...

Zune HD Industrial Design
[udpate] Bonus – Steve Ballmer demos the Zune HD at the D Conference. Kudos to Engadget I’m a student of industrial design and detailing (albeit not a very good one) so I thought it may be worth taking a closer look at some of the detailing on the new Zune HD. Upper Rear I like the brushed...

Zune Pass Takes it to Apple’s Wallet
Now Zune is going after Apple where it hurts most right now – in the wallet. the Zune pass is sadly not available for my imported Zune but it if was I’d be using it. $15 a month for as much music as you like. Check out the video of Wes Moss Video: Zune-Capacity hat tip to Liveside
11 May 2009
I wouldn’t normally comment on rumours around our own products but this looks VERY promising. an HD Zune? I don’t really watch much video on my Zune but it looks beautiful. You may think working at Microsoft would give me some inside knowledge but not with Zune (or XBOX)…these guys are like the CIA....

Windows Mobile 6.5 and Zune
I didn’t manage to catch the Windows Mobile 6.5 session at MIX09 but after looking watching the video I’m inclined to agree with Long that it’s beginning to look like a more than adequate stop on the way to Windows Mobile 7. The UI looks pretty polished and in particular I like the home screen above...

Obama: I’m A PC…doh, I Mean, I’m An iPod
Polydee keeps the Zunegate saga running be informing me that it appeared in one of the free London papers today. Quality headline there :) Apparently Obama's office has come out saying the man is an iPod through and through which is to be fair exactly what I’d say if I’d asked Steve Jobs for a free iPhone...

Is This Obama’s Zune?
The commentary continues over at techflash and elsewhere but who knows, maybe Obama was just using his DNC as reported in gizmodo.com earlier this year. Simple, smart move in the economic times to use your free schwag :)
