Zune opens with lackluster sales
The Zune mp3 player from Microsoft opened with lackluster sales in stores all across the nation yesterday. Is anyone really surprised? Microsoft quickly released a statement saying they are in it for the long haul and one setback is not going to discourage them. Plus I have heard disturbing news about the DRM (Digital Rights Management) Software used on the Zune. I thought the wireless connection was a nice addition but content you share is only valid for a number of days. Even if you create and upload content you created yourself and you own the rights to that content, when it is shared via the wireless connection on the Zune, copy protection will be apllied to it and there is no way to turn it off. Microsoft said this is because they can't differentiate between your content and content that was bought. Good luck.
