Yeah, this is what they said on Cnet . But presets are probably more user-friendly than a visual equalizer. Maybe there's both?

That would be my guess, but you know what happens when you assume....

Sorry if this has been asked, but what about on-the-go playlists?

Will I be able make playlists on the go while listening to the device? This is really important for me.

Flash on the browser is non-existent at this point. According to recent rundowns of demo units, the ZuneHD offers no Flash support.

Hey dave on this website it said no flash or something for the browser. And that it wont be able to play video sites. Do you think there will be a firmware update so that we can go on youtube or whatever?

Well, I remember someone saying something like that as well, just with Netscape Nav. in place of IE, and since your previous post was in the past tense, I thought I would just throw it out there.... ^^

Edit: Oh right, I am supposed to ask Dave something... will the Zune HD come with the Zune Premium or Bundled buds? I hope for the latter since it will lower the price. TIA, CF

I'm guessing the HD's Browser will be exactly as good as safari on the Touch. No better, no worse. Although I think I saw a scrunch of fingers used to close a web page, maybe any app. I'll bet the music app has some great originality and a critical flaw or two. I'm sure they left out a graphic equalizer because their research told them either no one used one or most people didn't even understand what one was for. More than likely to leave out something that might have caused confusion for the commoners.

So I'm sitting here at my table at a Nashville, TN restaurant - just finished my meal and thought I'd whip out my laptop to check in on you larrikins while I finish my merlot - and I'm getting LOTS of funny looks. Guess laptops in eating establishments aren't as common as in Seattle...

So, like all Zunes before it, this Zune HD device will support firmware updates, yes. And just a note - you shouldn't draw feature conclusions from publicly demonstrated (but very non-final) firmware. Not long to go now guys - wait and see what we have cooking for ya...

Actually, I don't know. I love the premiums myself - find the others difficult to fit in my ears. However, I'm really not sure. Lemme see if I can find out...

Cheers, Dave.

But to be honest it seems like ATM this is all we're gonna get. I mean if ya'll could just release one more cool spec then fine i'd believe you. But now i feel as if there's not much more to expect. And i still want my AB repeat Dave

Dave,
Will the Zune team have any new responsibilities associated with Microsoft Retail.
Any insight how Zune may bring something different to Microsoft Retail stores?
Live in store music gigs streaming on Zune social?
Thanks, as always, your gracious and professional comments are appreciated.
