It’s been around on the Zune marketplace since it launch. But it does have a real advantage over iPods-iTunes connection, because it allows you to pick up music from any computer. If you are familiar with iPod+iTunes, you know that when you take it to a friends house and try to sync it, you’ll either have to delete everything on the iPod already or not sync. But if you had a Zune you could easily download the great new song your friend has, so that you can listen to it on the way home without deleting the tracks already on it.
Sure, many other MP3 players also have it. But Zune seems to be headed for the number 2 spot and it can take a bit more of the marketshare as more features are enabled on the system. However, Microsoft has yet to fix the issue with the Zune Sharing that we mentioned earlier and websites are indicating that it was an issue regarding the flagging of the songs and they are working on it.
