Apple finally getting a taste of the Zune Experience?
For a long time now we have been speculating whether Microsoft will release the Software, and with it the potential of the Zune to Apple Mac's. Time and time again they have never really let Apple have a taste, and rightly so. But it leaves you to think, if you want to beat the competitor, don't you have to join them first?
I feel releasing an Apple Zune Software would potentially grab Ipod users a lot easier, as they can try the service out for themselves, without having to play around with stupid VirtualBox programs which let you run a Windows OS within the MAC OS. It could spread the Zune into Apple land and grasp some of their users. Now that would be a good idea.
You also have to think about the Potential of the Zune Pass. This is now becoming DRM free, which allows the music to be put onto any device, including the Ipod's. This could create a huge problem with the people at Itunes, where I feel $15 a month is a lot better than $1 a song, and we could start seeing Ipod owners using A Zune Pass. Not the full monty, but Microsoft is on the right track.
I also see a good point to this, and to the past. Why release something that isnt good, and give it to everyone? I mean, it would leave a bad taste for the rest of that devices life, correct? I feel Microsoft are finally proud of the Zune, and can now release it to the wild, seeing as a International release might come early next year, also.
I don't know about you, but I feel this is a good way to slowly win over more users, and eventually RULE THE WORLD *ahem* ,back the Zune franchise.
Again, this is not set in stone, but Microsoft are thinking about it. But first they have to sort the Zune on the Xbox, Zune on Windows Mobile, and THEN, they can decide whether or not fanboys deserve such a great experience.
