Somebody must have given Mr. Ballmer his Valium. After blasting Intel for forcing innovation on the industry (damn their eyes!), he used his inside voice to tell us a few secrets about the Zune software. Saying the Zune itself was just the beginning, he hinted that more Zune-ish integration is on the way, including with Windows Mobile.
I think that’s a good thing; the Zune interface is good and the aesthetic is slick. It’s what everyone has asked for — integration with Microsoft’s other services — and although MS has been sluggish in making it happen, it looks like they’re on track to deliver the goods.
