Folks of ABI...get the feeling you already are the real Zune Team?
I'm hoping it's more that they want to seriously hear what we want on the device before they make their next move. Assuming that's the case, I like their strategy of keeping those who purchased their product happy. Now if only they would let me choose the artist background pictures... My next project for my car is rigging together a dock and LCD to have the kick-ass TV-out interface and choosing my own background to go with each artist would be great as some pictures are either pixelated or positioned poorly when using the video output.

Interesting question. This is what would bring most satisfaction for users.

1.- Flash Player (so you can stream videos from either Youtube, Veoh, MySpace video/audio player) I use it a lot to stream music/anime, ... Neither iphone nor iBad have it and everyone wants it.

2.- Email app. If we are talking about an email app the player should be able to connect to any type of wireless connection (such as pass protected wi-fi spots -like at University, McDonalds, etc- which we are currently unable to connect to-)

3.- Great 3D games: We have to see the potential of this baby. It would bring attention from developers, and gamers. The player has the amazing OLED screen to show some fancy graphs, colorful games. I wanted a pinball game from the start, and I definitely want one, but that keeps being another "common game" that wouldn't bring much attention from developers.

Hope this gets somewhere.

Now, if you'll excuse me I will be getting back to my plan of conquering the Universe.

I'm getting on in years, I see what side the proverbial bread is buttered on, and I'm willing to whore myself out for The Big Dollar. So, with that being the baseline, how much could I expect to make BY whoring myself out as a Zune Fanboy? How often would I have to post? (I'd have no problem posting the most asinine pro-party-line crap imaginable -- just so long as I'm getting paid for it, natch.) And, most importantly, who would I talk to in order to sign up for this exciting opportunity?

TUVM to anyone who can help me out here!

I agree, a fair few people want those features, but not the public.

I'd like to start off by saying a lot of people are asking for apps that are already created (as 3rd party apps). Such as Znotes for a notepad, Zune HD Stopwatch, and Book Reader HD. Each are quite good too, I might add.

Now for my top 3 apps:

1) Calendar/Scheduler (Altough I think this would work best if part of the firmware, instead of an app, not sure if we could get the much needed reminders and alarms working if it's through an application)

2) Dictionary/Thesaurus

3) Youtube app

No I don't think apps that restart your zune every time you exit them count, let alone not even on the zune marketplace =/ which is microsoft's fault in not realsing a offical SDK.

1. Windows Live Messenger
2. Email app or Hotmail app
3. Youtube app may be nice

Number 1 is a must have because all the phones has Windows Live Messenger but not the Zune HD. as you know Windows Live Messenger support MSN plus you can chat with friends who are in your list who has Yahoo & AOL which to me is very important then Youtube app.

Media and Entertainment focused.

1. Netflix
2. XBL - exclusive games, communications and friends list
3. Windows Live Suite - Skydrive, Messenger, Photos, Writer (so we can update youtube, blogs etc) and Mail

Streaming radio is nice, but I have plenty of choice between Zunepass, Websites and radio.

#1. Not so much an app, but Flash Player.

So that we can use youtube and other flash-based sites.

Alright, how about we ask for things that are useful/not so easy to make by 3rd party people.
For note taking:
http://games.zhdapps.com/2009/apps/znotes/
calendar:
http://games.zhdapps.com/2009/apps/calendar/
stop watch:
http://games.zhdapps.com/2009/apps/stopwatch/
There's a few paint programs too and more apps/games and updates coming.

So how about for the things we ask for, it's something we don't have already? Just a thought.

1. You tube(everyone seems to want it)
2. Skype with hardware that would connect into bottom connection which would add microphone and webcam capability. The hardware sold would help pay for development of app.
3. Calendar/e-mail suite that can pull info from google accounts.
