New Zune Software

So yesterday the New Zunes and Zune software came out. Now I thought that the old Zune software was horrible but the new software has its problems as well. The new software is a lot eaiser to use and I like the new search and customization of the background. Here is the old software: This is the new software: As you can see they are drastically different. Now I think that the new software is easier to use and easier to navigate through the artists and albums. However on the downside is you lost a lot of editing with music tags and album art. For example I have The Rolling Stones 500 Greatest songs and its listed by the different artists so when I select all the different artists with the same album name I can’t apply the same album art so I have to do it individually. Same thing with changing the song artists. For people who had a generation 1 Zune also got the new Zune firmware. The new Zune firmware is pretty nice and it comes with a lot of upgrades. Right off the bat theres a new interface and menu system. Now the new interface is a lot bigger and easy to read, its also a lot faster to use. Now the Zune also supports podcasts which I guess is nice I don’t know a lot of podcasts but maybe I’ll get hooked on them. The newest feature that is that theres wireless syncing which is pretty nice. It does take a little bit out of the battery but is convenient if your not near your computer, being in a small apartment I don’t really see a use for it because I can just walk 5 steps and plug it in. It does however free up a USB slot which is nice since those are at a premium. Coming tomorrow: The Zune Social
