Yes, it's a Zune Widget

So, that item on the right hand "nav" bar, for lack of a better term, is a Zune Widget. Yep, a Zune.

OK, stop laughing now.

Anyway, I picked up one of the old 30 GB ones from Woot last November for the princely sum of $89.95 + $5 shipping. Still laughing? Seriously, it's 30 GB of music and video for 94.95. Hopefully the Zune will last longer than the Creative Vision:M did (6 months).

Anyway, the Zune software is not ideal, but it does a decent job. One of the intriguing items was the Zune social site. It keeps up to date on what I've listened to, as long as it actually knows what it is I'm listening to. It seems to have no idea who Wolfgang Parker or Fenster were, or are, which really isn't very surprising.

Anyway, that's what the little widget is up there with it's really strange images of the Bosstones, Primus and Soundgarden. I think you're supposed to connect to other Zune users, but there aren't a whole lot of them. So if you've got one...connect!

Below it is the Plaxo widget...see an earlier post about that plague and feel free to connect to me there if you're so inclined.
