And finally... WiFi passion: "I am liking the 'a truly WiFi-enabled device' idea! I love my Zune, but the crippled WiFi ability is kind of like when your dad adjusts the governor on your go-cart. You know [very] well you can zune zune (err zoom zoom), but you are throttled down for your safety. I would love the ability to stream my external hard drives mp3 content over my wireless router to my Zune while I am on the lawn tractor!!!" Comment
