Zune Update 2.5!

Ahhhh...finally, I'm in love with my Zune. It's taken a long time and I've struggled, oh how I've struggled. In a year and a half, I can't tell you how many times I've fought my Zune to get content on it. Music, videos...(pictures were always easy...). My library has been erased and rebuilt numerous times...all just to listen to music on my Zune. Forget podcasts or vidcasts...those were so much of a pain, I just abandoned the notion.

Now with the 2.5 release of the Zune software, they've added back in some of my favorite tools:
  • Autoplaylists
    Finally! What took so long? I love to have a new music playlist that syncs just my newest music to my Zune. I'd given up hope I was ever going to see this again! Yippee!
  • Genres are back!
    My beloved genres. I spent so many hours tagging music in my library to play only my 70s, 80s, 90s, etc. music I almost cried when Zune didn't offer support for genres. Wahhh! But my crying days are over and my eyes are dry, genres are back and even, dare I say it, welcome in Zune!

Podcasts and vidcasts were added in one of the last releases and are getting a workout on my two Zunes (4 GB and 30GB), the 80GB is currently in Sawyer's room providing her needed country & western fix. (Don't ask me why she likes it, but she does....Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash...they're her favorites!)

Want to see what I'm listening to? Check out its all right there...oh, yeah, BTW, I could use a friend. Do you wanna be my Zune friend? Please?
