Microsoft Zune -The New unofficial iPod killer.

I saw the article on google news, here it is

Well so far the feature set looks cool (able to sync to your computer via wifi). But, there's little else known about it.

There's also a teaser site put up by Microsoft, here

I wouldn't exactly say that the teaser tells us too much about the product though....

What do you guys make of it?

I don't think it will turn out to be a iPod killer, but it does look quite interesting.

And Microsoft is going to buy out your itunes selection and convert it into Zune music files? That would cost them huge amounts of money. And one other thing, can't they think up a better name than "Zune"?

Yeah, Zune does sound a little odd.

ye zune sounds..well gay, too treky, tron (dnt flame ffs u know what i mean) ipod just sounds modern chic, etc way better. Knowing microsoft this thing will look ugly aswell, and prob not work very well, and prob have some sort of anti piracy thing which tells you ure ZUNE is not a real ZUNE and you need to buy a new one or something.

I saw this coming. Microsoft usually tap into technology markets a year or so after they explode, so of course MP3 players are something they target.

'Zune' is indeed a terrible name.
