It could be really neat, if it was possible to use the multi-touch capability to rotate the picture, when viewing it - instead of using some kind of menu.

What's annoying about that scenario is when you rotate to show someone the picture right side up, it switches orientation!

Customizable EQ (either a modifying 5 band one or a 7 band one). Youtube.

Hi,
something that i haven't seen already: some playlist editing on the player. So being able to overwrite existing playlists after adding songs tot the now playling list, and even more important being able to delete songs from a playlist.

I've mentioned it a few times (along with a broader set of on-the-fly playlisting features)

1) Ehm, ripoff from Apple? Just press the play button on the homescreen. Isn't that much work, right?
2) Good point.
3) Ehm upgrade UI? Why, it is one of the best things about the whole Zune experience?
4) I don't think a picture on the homescreen background would be nice with the Zune interface,. Some themes with various colour scemes would be nice though.
5) and 6) Good points.

1) double click (the media button) to pause/play
2) better integration with Windows Live
3) allow commonly used apps to run in the background
4) offline access to online apps (Facebook, Twitter *email?*)
5) OTA podcast syncing anywhere
6) Better SmartDJ algorithms

Zune Software

1) TV/Film Metadata

Doesn't have the required memory. I'd like someone to prove me wrong, but last I checked, the only WinCE devices that ran IE6 mobile with Flash Light had at least 192MB RAM (if not 256). Zune HD has 128.

Again, RAM limitation. The Zune HD seems to allow all of it's base functions and the web browser to run in the background, and only drops them when an app is loaded, giving it semi-exclsuive access to memory.

I don't believe the Browser runs in the background since you have to reload a page every time you go back to the main menu as opposed to the Ipod Touch where it is 'saved' and pops up when you return.

Something like that would also be useful for glance-and-go apps like Facebook: It should save a limited amount of the data and only have to update it instead of completely reloading everything every time you go on.

1. something like xbox360 indie games, adding like 60 games to the zunemarketplace.
2. have the clock on the media button.
3. A game like scene it for your movies so there is a music based game and a video based game.
4. ESPN is coming to xbox so it should come to the zune hd too it might help sales to since everybody likes sports.

Since I don't see it, how about
1. How about, instead of a 4 number PIN to unlock the device, how about prompting for a 4 number PIN when deleting something? And make the lock failure thing more like the iOS system; a number of fails and the device locks itself, instead of prompting for a reset after 3 strikes (I've had my Zune reset due to some unfortunate accidental presses).

2. Customized media presets (Shuffle, EQ, etc.) for different Artists, Playlists, Songs, etc. This would be a great feature that would save a ton of time. For example, I have a playlist that I manage myself (Infinite Loop), but I want this to be shuffled. However, I listen to a lot of album operas (Octavarium by Dream Theater, Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, Abbey Road by The Beatles, etc.), I usually don't want these to be shuffled (for obvious reasons). I also listen to different genres of music (Progressive rock/metal, Classic rock/metal, Orchestral, Video Game, Jazz, etc.) so it would be nice to have preset EQ settings as well.

1) the PIN is for the owner's protection, so the erase all penalty is there to stop a thief from using the owner's account and points. The missing feature is the ability to override the PIN by connecting to the home PC (the linked PC) which would have to be correctly logged in.
2) Neat idea. I just wish the EQ was better in general (too weak in my opinion.)
