Microsoft has released it’s 3.0 update for their Zune devices.

New features of the 3.0 update include:

  • The ability to provide you with song recommendations.
  • New pre-programmed channels with things like “workout music”
  • Two new games (Hexic and Texas Hold’Em)
  • The ability to purchase tracks via the Wi-Fi connection including free connectivity at partners across the US via Wayport which includes 9,800 McDonald’s restaurants
  • Audiobooks from Audible.com and OverDrive

AND, this is really cool: using the Zune’s built-in FM tuner, if you hear a song you like just let the device know and it will identify it and download it the next time you sync. Cool!
