Zune 3.0 First impression (Part 1)
Ok so I installed the new version at work so I could listen to my collection. I use work as a guest account so I can listen to my collection so I don’t go insane. Anyway I cant check out a lot of the new features yet because I don’t have my zune with me but…
One new thing I noticed is the red automation that they added to the bottom of the zune window.
(Look at bottom of picture to see the red bouncing lines when a song is playing) I wonder if you can change the color. I looked under settings but didn’t see a way to change it. I will have to (god forbid) look at the manual to see if it is customizable.
I also noticed that if you have the zune window up it takes up to 30% or greater of my cpu usage but if I minimize it then the software only takes about 2-4% or less of the cpu process. That new automation is cool but it looks to me to be sucking up CPU Usage. So if you are like me and desperate for more power at work try minimizing the zune window and see if that gives you more power :-)
I will write up part 2 once I get home and upgrade my actual zune. I can’t wait to try out the new games and the clock. I hope we can still add other games because I have some really cool ones that people developed over the summer.
