No Zune.

Just a few days ago I was remarking how Microsoft appeared to really be getting their act together with the new Zunes. Alas, I was being too hopeful. Apparently the Zune can’t talk to my media management software of choice, JRiver Media Center. Not a problem with the iPod Classic (though Apple puts protections on its hardware, they clearly don’t “mean it” quite like MS does since they get hacked away within days). I’m told the Zunes are set up to not talk to anything other than zTunes (or whatever the MS software is called). Unfortunate. Dumb play, IMO.
