Microsoft launches Zune website !!

In advance of the player's official launch on November 14, Microsoft has taken the wraps off its new Zune Web site promoting the device, along with a Zune Arts site for users to download and share background images and short videos.

"Welcome to the social," Microsoft's Zune tagline reads. Social networking features like music and playlist sharing are what the Redmond company hopes will set Zune apart from Apple's ubiquitous iPod and give it a chance to compete. Microsoft is also hosting launch events in six cities in order to spread the word about its new player.
