2. Main menu has the following scroll down as shown in screen shot from my ZUNE.
- Market Place
3. Further brief on few of these of interest are enumerated below
Market Place allows browsing, previewing & downloading music directly from Microsoft's Zune Marketplace online store. Marketplace submenu further allows choosing between browsing Songs, Albums, and New Releases, or search for specific music by keying in a few letters. Songs can be previewed for 30 seconds with the option to add them to your virtual cart or purchase and download immediately. By signing up for Microsoft's Zune Pass music-subscription service (a free 14-day trial is available).....still to be availed by me.....
ZUNE is WiFi enabled and allows keying in the passwords if required vide Zunepad.
Radio : An interesting part of my first few days of interaction with ZUNE was non running of FM stations till the time I got link to this thread ie http://vasudevg.blogspot.com/2007/12/zune-fm-radio-tip.html that involved simply changing country from preset US to Europe
Video format : The only problem that I faced was that the horde of movies that I possess do not run directly on this.One needs to convert them to zune/ipod format with easy to use Windows Media Encoder....time consuming but worth it when we play it here on the ZUNE......I converted Sivaji Rajinikanth(...my fav) with a third party software Cucusoft...but was labelled with trial version watermark throughou(screen shot down)....rest was quiet ok....then converted with windows media encoder...and worked perfectly fine....gr8 output in video and sound....
Ports : Only two including one to ear phone and the other to USB for interface with PC for sync and charging battery.
Capacity : 120 GB...thats awesome for storage!!!!!
4. Any one across with any difficulty or query on Zune player can just leave his/her problem....will get back asap.......thats a promise for while.....

First, this attack was not just on Google. As part of our investigation we have discovered that at least twenty other large companies from a wide range of businesses--including the Internet, finance, technology, media and chemical sectors--have been similarly targeted. We are currently in the process of notifying those companies, and we are also working with the relevant U.S. authorities.
Second, we have evidence to suggest that a primary goal of the attackers was accessing the Gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists. Based on our investigation to date we believe their attack did not achieve that objective. Only two Gmail accounts appear to have been accessed, and that activity was limited to account information (such as the date the account was created) and subject line, rather than the content of emails themselves.
Third, as part of this investigation but independent of the attack on Google, we have discovered that the accounts of dozens of U.S.-, China- and Europe-based Gmail users who are advocates of human rights in China appear to have been routinely accessed by third parties. These accounts have not been accessed through any security breach at Google, but most likely via phishing scams or malware placed on the users' computers.
