A requirement to be on conference calls is not part of this test. I said that there might be one or two, but not mandatory and by no means a substantial part of the test. Communicating by email is just fine.

I don't understand this at all. I didn't think I could have been any MORE clear about the fact that more apps and games were coming. Those who have monitored these boards for a while will be able to confirm that if nothing else, I have crystal clear and unequivocal about apps & games. I've never lied, and I've never misled - so let me state it again. There. Will. Be. More. Apps. And. Games.

Cheers, Dave.

Does the "Thanks" reply mean we are a part of it or just acknowledging that we sent you the email.

Someone requested that I acknowledge receipt of your application emails, so that's all that is. I'll be sending out NDAs later today/tonight (depending on schedule - will post here if I get delayed).

Cheers, Dave.

Okay, well I still am in some hopes. Will be the only thing to look forward to tonight besides Tosh.0. Lets hope somebody does not leave their Zune at a bar and somebody finds it and sends it to Gizmodo

FYI - will be cutting off applications soon. Wanted to get about 100 people, and easily have that many already...

Cheers, Dave.

Default Thanks, but no thanks

I would love to take advantage of this offer, and am greatly encouraged by your statement regarding more Apps and more games. Unfortunately, most of my waking hours are spent in a location without WI-fi access, or on a commuter railroad. Too bad the Zune does not have 3G access (maybe in a future release), but I will have to pass.

However, the tone of Dave's messages does cheer one up. The Zune will never be an Ipod in terms of apps, but more is always better, and it is encouraging that the Zune is not a dead end product, at least not yet.

Let us keep hoping that Microsoft will remain loyal to the folks who had faith in them when they released this fine product.

Wish I could, but not around the PC enough. Use my ZuneHD's wireless ALOT though. Very quick way to check e-mail/facebook ect... Sadly, the app for Facebook on the ZuneHD loads to slow and its actually quicker to use the mobile version on IE.

So, idk.. I use my ZuneHD on average about 5-6 hrs a day playing games n such. I am just not that easy to get ahold of via phone.

I will send out an e-mail with my details none-the-less.

Does being under 18 disqualify you?

Not to be answering for him but if you are under 18, I think he may ask that your parents/legal guardian's sign off on the NDA as well...?

Yeah that won't be an issue. A signature is cheap price. They'd be cool with it

Ya, no problems from my perspective being under 18. I think if that was a problem, I'd lose half or more of the ABi respondents.

Cheers, Dave.

Nah, no need for even more coverage. Already have plenty of respondents. Thanks though!

Cheers, Dave.

So, now the selection process is underway. I hope I'm chosen. It's like I'm in the lottery or something.

Would we receive the NDA by e-mail or snail mail?

Default Interesting opprotunity

Just sent an e-mail to Dave, it would be pretty cool beta testing an app.

Ok, no more applications thanks folks - I have a ton here.

I'm going to try and accommodate everyone that I can - but there'll be two waves. NDAs will be sent by email.

I'm not going to get to most (or any) of them today, so look for them tomorrow.

Cheers, Dave.
