The word "Zune" is no longer exclusively in the domain of the nerd as Microsoft has started plastering New York City with ads of its portable media player that's poised to solve all of the world's problems. Do we learn anything new from the ads? No, sir, but we do get yet another confirmation on the release date: November 14 (for $249.99, natch). We're also told that Zune is the way music wants to be—that is to say, Windows-only and purchased with Microsoft points. Can't wait for my music to be set free, Microsoft!
