isn't receiving many praises. In fact, it's seeing some quite harsh criticism
, despite it not even yet being available. In this particular Engadget article, they attack the Zune's wireless functionality, which they claim is crippled, due to its inability to help facilitate downloading of music. In particular, the onboard wireless functionality of the Zune can only transfer pictures and "trial" music, along with detect other Zunes in the area. It can't, however, download music from the Zune store or sync to a computer wirelessly. While I'm sure Microsoft
has their reasons for making the device as such, one must wonder why they designed the wireless portion of it in such a fashion. It wouldn't be that difficult to make the wireless connection act just like any other physical connection to the PC.
