Scott Lock Thoughts on .Net, Caparea.net and Windows Phone

I can't believe what I'm reading.  Microsoft announced yesterday the details on the new Zune 2.0 hardware, features and supporting software.  There are some good things coming...but...and I don't unsderstand why...they have missed the boat...again.

WHY CAN'T I DOWNLOAD MUSIC FROM ZUNE MARKETPLACE OVER WIFI?

WHY CAN'T I GET REAL VIDEO FROM ZUNE MARKETPLACE AND NOT JUST MUSIC VIDEOS?

I don't get it.  I don't understand.  I love my zune.  I use it every day for at least 3 hours a day (Work, Gym).  I really want it to compete, but community Cards is not going to get it done.  And why do I care about wireless sync?  You have to plug it in via USB cable anyways to charge it.  How many people really splurged for the AC adapter?

I just can't believe it.

I'm not defending the weaknesses you pointed out, but I think one of their reasons for not including a bunch of video content on Marketplace is because they are pushing for people to get a media center, and sync any TV programming you want to your Zune that way.
