It has taken nearly 3 years for Microsoft to get in the Podcasting game but it appears that the new Zune is going to be able to sync and download podcast via Wifi at home while connected to the home network.
We have no confirmation yet whether the older Zune’s are going to get the same update and have the same functionality.
This is one step short of perfection all is needed now is some additional software and the Zune will be able to update podcast anytime it connects to a Wifi connection.
I am pretty happy that Microsoft is finally figuring out the new media is an important part of most digital content consumers. This may also lower the barriers some in making people realize that they can consume Podcasts aka new media without a iPod.
The simple fact that one can sync over the air though is a huge improvement no need for cables. You can have your Zune in any part of your home and the unit can receive updates. www.alleyinsider.com
