TechCrunch的John Biggs,写关于Zune基于Wi-Fi的“共享”功能(该功能显然让Zune用户相互发送受DRM保护的文件,这些共享文件在三天内最多可播放三次):

Clearly all the data isn’t in yet, but this definitely pushes the MP3 player out of the pocket and into the realm of social networkingThe question, obviously, is what is Apple going to do about this and, as a corrallary [SIC], how low Apple and Creative shares are selling as we speak? Perhaps MS could create a “Zune Inside” logo for those guys? Or maybe fund a halfway house for underconnected MP3 players?

如果Zune已经发货,并且有人购买它,并且这个功能被证明很受欢迎,那么,是的,Apple需要对它做点什么或者即使Zune刚刚发布,我们实际上可以看到这个功能并确定它实际上很酷,那么,也许,Apple可能需要对它做点什么但Zune是雾件

它现在显然已经接近发布它们已经正式宣布它并显示它会是什么样子,但它没有发货,显然还没有完成设计在接受Gizmodo的采访时,1微软的J Allard说:

Gizmodo的: OK, if I’m using a Zune, am I really going to troll Wifi for other people’s music? What is that going to do for battery life?

J Allard: It’s a tough problem, and we’re not done with it yet我们拥有的是不同的电源模式Oversimplifying, we have a beacon mode that says “I’m around.” The next level that uses more power says “hey, I want to do something, and share, whether that’s music, photos.”

我们怎么样等到微软在我们开始安排舞蹈课程以准备前往iPod的坟墓之前,决定“他们将要做什么”关于Zune的Wi-Fi共享?2至于苹果股票在我们发言时的销售价格有多低,他们说这一天甚至收支平衡

我的问题:

If they’re “not done with it yet”, on September 14, when will they be? How late can they wait to go into production and still hit shelves for the holiday season?

And if this really is a killer feature in a product they honestly expect to ship within the next month or two, why are they talking about it now? Why tip their hand to Apple in advance? Why blow all this media attention before people can actually fork over their money for the thing? Why not go for maximum impact with a “Here it is and you can buy one today!” debut a few weeks from now?

最重要的问题是:棕色


  1. 完全切向但有趣的nonethess:Gizmodo对Allard的采访关于Zune比主要竞争对手短Engadget的, but yet I found Gizmodo’s both more interesting and more informative. ↩︎

  2. The “vaporware” charge cuts both ways, of course — it would be just as unfair to ask now for Microsoft’s response to “iTV”. ↩︎
