Zune updating device content
Microsoft and many other game developers use DRM in their Xbox games.Having gone back and forth about the requirement of DRM and always-on internet check-in requirements and restrictions for games since 2012, Microsoft is currently focused on restricting your rights.I suppose if you are already an i Pod user this may take some more practice than someone like me who doesn't have his own i Pod (my wife has a nano I use sometimes).The Zune is taller and thicker than the i Pod, but feels lighter in my hand since it isn't as dense as the i Pod.As readers know I purchased a Zune about 3 weeks ago and posted some initial thoughts on my blog.Since that time there has been lots more written on the internet about the Zune, mostly some harsh feedback that sounds like the authors didn't spend too much time with the device itself.However, I wanted to try out something new and personally enjoy other devices from Microsoft, T-Mobile Dash for example, and wanted to give the Zune a try.I don't like the way Microsoft paid off Universal and this alone almost made me want to return the Zune.
Close this dialog box to cancel, or you can choose to confirm to install the update.
I don't have a large music collection and want an unlimited music subscription, I also want to watch video on the device (I know many people can't understand why you someone would want to watch video on a small display, but I'm a geek and enjoy the experience during my 2 hour bus/van/train commute), and I enjoy FM radio on a regular basis.
I could have picked up something like a San Disk Sansa device with a Plays For Sure subscription and that may be the best choice for many people.
DRM is built into the heart of Windows and many other Microsoft services Windows Media DRM, for the Windows Media Platform, has four components, which manage DRM packaging, building applications to support DRM, tools for DRM offline playback on portable devices, and DRM for streaming with network devices.
Since the Windows 10 Anniversary Update in 2016, users have been seeing this warning message: We recommend you do not proceed with this update as your device may have some music or video content that is protected by an older rights management technology, which is not supported.
On the other hand, I have been carrying the Zune naked for a couple weeks and there isn't a visible scratch anywhere on it.
