Microsoft registers ZuneLive.com

More information is slowly leaking out on Microsoft's upcoming Zune portable media player (PMP). ZuneNation is reporting that the domain name ZuneLive.com was registered back on May 24, 2006. While this initial finding didn't raise many flags, the domain was registered to a man named Jack Spurr. After doing a bit more digging, they found out that Mr. Spurr has previously registered MicrosoftGadgets.com which is an official Microsoft site that provides gadgets for the Windows Vista Sidebar and Windows SideShow.

So we have an idea of what the final product may look like, we’ve received word on its wireless capabilities, we know that Microsoft is chatting with iPod accessory makers and we now know that Microsoft has some sort of "Live"-esque service waiting in the wings for Zune. The only question is how this service may tie into Microsoft’s Live Anywhere or XBOX Live service.

A broadcast mode so everyone could listen to the same thing would be a killer feature. One could also argue that it would be a great way for people to sample new music before buying it. RIAA isn't yet suing record stores that let people listen to select albums in store... right? I don't see a reason to allow for recording the mini-broadcast.

I know how I'd use it. I run with a friend who has differnt music tastes, but we are always open to try new things.
