It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

R.I.P. Zune Players

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft says it will no longer be producing Zune music players. Existing Zune players will continue to work with Zune services, and warranties will be honored. But with this move, Microsoft is implicitly acknowledging that the Zune players were never able to compete with the iPod, something that’s been painfully obvious for years. Microsoft will be focusing future mobile music and video efforts on Windows Phone, much as Apple has transitioned from traditional iPods to iOS devices.Generic Globefollow link

"Follow Link" (http://www.zune.net/en-US/support/zuneplayers/supportzuneplayers.htm) is broken. Say what you will about MS, I'm thinking this is a mistake (the link, not the story).

Fascinating. Microsoft took down the page - the link is correct, and I can no longer find any mention of this on the Zune site.

Microsoft has announced that it is discontinuing announcements on the fate of the Zune. Existing local copies of previous announcements will continue to be supported. Microsoft will be focusing future announcements on products that have not yet shipped. ☺
