    Great job Zune team!

    Concerning the switch to a glass screen, I wonder if there will be a slight hit to durability. I know no one plans on dropping devices such as these, and I'd still buy one without hesitation, but the glass screen evokes images of the cracked screens on devices from at least one of your competitors.

    If possible, could Laura ask about this, and/or could someone on the Zune team address it?

    There are many much needed improvements here.  And I'm very happy about the improved Media Center support as well.  The Zune team obviously spent much of this year working on new hardware and rewriting software.  With that behind them, I imagine next year we will see more advancement of the the software/firmware .  With any luck they'll get back to a regular update schedule thats on par with XBox...Spring/Fall updates.

    Any ideas when these may or may not be rolled out across Europe - or more specifically the UK?

    That's great news!  I can't say that I like the new styling, but the firmware improvements alone more than make up for that.  The big question I still have is can I use it as a portable hard drive, or is Microsoft still determined to keep the memory locked?
