The latest version of the Zune player is a nifty looking thing packed with some features that would make an iPod blush. It’s all about music discovery, and being portable in the process. So with that in mind Zune have added a Buy from FM feature, which allows users to tag and buy music directly from their player from virtually anywhere. If using the radio, you can tag the track to buy later when connected online. If you’re in a wi-fi hot spot, you can buy the track directly to the Zune. Oh, and it comes with Zune Marketplace too so you can buy directly through the store from the palm of your hand. And there’s video games — two of them — which are free with the latest software update. Now, if only the palms of my hands were that much fun.
